A STUNNING GLACIAL VALLEY IN THE HEART OF THE WICKLOW MOUNTAINS
The Wicklow Mountain National Park is a must for any nature lovers on their trip to Ireland. Set over nearly 50,000 acres, it boasts diverse landscapes and wildlife.
You can take part in a host of outdoor activities here. Visit Lugnaquilla, the highest mountain of the region, as well as the Liffey Head Bog complexes and the Glendalough Wood Nature Reserve.
Glendalough itself is another highlight in the region that we recommend. This glacial valley is one of the most beautiful landscapes in Ireland.
Nicknamed the “valley of the two lakes”, Glendalough is most well-known for its rich history and monastic city. This ecclesiastical settlement was founded in the 6th century by Saint Kevin, and a round tower, stone churches and ancient crosses remain to this day.
Roam the grounds and go to the visitor centre to learn more.
The monuments and lakes at Glendalough, as well as the Wicklow Mountain National Park, are accessible all year round at no charge.View South East Ireland
