Glendalough Monastic Site and Visitor Centre

Share This:

This early Christian ecclesiastical settlement was founded by St. Kevin in the 6th century. Set in a glaciated valley with two lakes, the monastic remains include a superb round tower, stone churches and decorated crosses.

The Visitor Centre has an interesting exhibition and an audio-visual show. French and Spanish guided tours are available all year by advance booking. The Visitor Centre is fully accessible for visitors with disabilities. However, access to the graveyard is difficult for wheelchair users.
