Wicklow Mountains National Park: Nature and St Kevin Walk, Sunday 29th September 2019

Join National Park Guides for a gentle walk in the beautiful valley of Glendalough. St Kevin is known as the ‘St Francis’ of Ireland. He is known for his deep love of wildlife. We will visit some of the sites associated with St Kevin, sharing the stories about St Kevin’s connection with nature and discussing possible meanings behind the stories, weaving them with current conservation concerns.

Practicalities: Adults only. Wear footwear suitable for rough terrain and clothing suitable for wet weather. The walk will start and finish at the OPW Visitor Centre. Estimated walking distance approximately six kilometres and includes a short section of approximately 50 steps. There will be an opportunity to buy a snack and beverage at a kiosk in the Upper Lake car park, or alternatively, bring your own refreshments.  Please leave your dog at home. This event is free of charge but please be aware that the OPW Visitor Centre car park has a €4 charge for car parking.

Booking: Booking is essential! To book and for more information, please phone the National Park Information Office 0404 45425.
