Priest House – Glendalough

Address
Glendalough Monastic City, Laragh Glendalough
Phone 1

To the west of St Kevin’s Cross lies a small building known as the Priest’s house. The name derives from an 18th century practice of bringing the priests to be readied for burial and also burying priests in the floor. According to local folk tradition, the clay from the floor of a building held a cure for toothache. The clay was simply rubbed on the jaw in order to gain relief. The original use for this room is uncertain. Conflicting theories suggest that it might have been erected over the grave of St Kevin himself or just housed some relics of the saint.
