The Valley of Glendalough
Explore scenic nature walks in the Valley of Glendalough with local pilgrim guide, Michael Rodgers, SPS. Explore the lives of monks and scholars who lived here during Ireland's Golden Age of spiritual Christianity in the 6th Century AD and the Monastic City that followed in the 11th Century AD. Enjoy lake walks during Spring time, visit a ruined 19th Century miner's village with feral goats bleating in the background, or climb the Spinc boardwalk to panoramic vistas across the valley.
Glendalough is now yours to explore with Michael providing a spiritual backdrop to what is spread out before you. Listen to his words of wisdom and seek that peace and solitude that Saint Kevin did, in this very same spot, all those hundreds of years ago.
