Legends of Glendalough

Glendalough is one of the most beautiful places in Ireland. It has everything you need for a fantastic trip: gorgeous nature, interesting history, loads of legends, good walking paths and a pub to end your day with a pint of local ale.

 

Legends of Glendalough takes you on a 45-minute tour of the monastic site. We go back to the sixth century, when Saint Kevin founded the monastery. A qualified guide will tell you about the history and the legends of this special place. After the tour you’ll get the information you need to discover the rest of the valley at your own pace.
