Glendalough is in the Wicklow Mountains National Park. It is definitely worth going to, and you should allot yourself a few hours to do so. The lakes are beautiful, and there are so many neat things to see.....cemeteries, church ruins, hiking paths, and more! It is a nice outing and should not be missed!

We went straight from Glendalough Valley to these mountains and we managed to catch two beautiful, completely different sunsets in the same day!

The beauty of the two lakes at Glendalough is breathtaking , especially on a bright day.The water is cool and soothing.One of the best sights i have ever seen.

Many walking tracks in the hills.All graded and well marked.

Go to Sallygap(picturesque hill trails) and Indian sculpure park (profound philosophy and sculptures) if you are driving through and have the time/inclination.

Pack your camera and a pair of walking shoes.

It cant get prettier than this.

PS : Lake level parking can get to be crowded.

The cafeteria is a welcome break at the end of the hike.

Bring your swimsuit. After a hike, that lake is cold but refreshing. Bring some bug spray for when the sun goes down.

My husband and I were on a pilgrimage to Ireland and toured this area through Catholic Travel. We came to Glendalough and the ruins of St. Kevin's Monastery. We visited the Interpretive Center and we had a guided tour of the Monastery grounds. We also went to nearby St. Kevin's church and we visited the retreat center. On our way back to Dublin, we went to Powerscourt and got to visit the formal gardens. Oh my gosh. Is this beautiful. The entire day was beautiful, but those gardens - it's like out of a movie set. Please spend the day in this area, more if you can. You won't regret it.
