Wicklow County Tourism

Laragh & Glendalough

Laragh (Irish: An Láithreach, meaning Site (or ruins) of a Building) is a small picturesque village in County Wicklow, Ireland. It lies at the junction of three roads through the Wicklow Mountains ( R115, R755 and R756) and is primarily known for its proximity to the Monastic settlement of Glendalough. Sally Gap and the Glenmacnass Waterfall are to the north, to the west is Glendalough and the Wicklow Gap and to the south is Glenmalure Valley.

The area is deeply wooded, with the hills and mountains rising from the valley and due to its closeness to Dublin, hill walkers (or hikers) and tourists converge on the village as their centre for recreational activities in the mountains. About 5 km from the village, on the Rathdrum road is the 100-acre fun park Clara Lara.
