Glendalough - The Glen of the Two Lakes - is a valley celebrated for its beauty and its historical and archaeological interest. The valley is home to one of Ireland's most atmospheric monastic sites, established by St. Kevin in the 6th century. The area also provides excellent rock-climbing, rough scrambling and ordinary hill walking. A visitor centre, located at the mouth of the valley, provides a unique opportunity to interpret the lives and times of the monks who once lived here.
