Step into the world of the miners and hermits with a virtual walking tour through the stunning Glendalough Valley in County Wicklow. Led by local pilgrim guide, Fr. Michael Rodgers, SPS, you'll start your journey by the Glenealo River and follow the Miner's Road up to the head of the valley. As you hug the lakeshore, Fr. Michael will point out Saint Kevin's Bed across the lake, where the hermit is said to have stayed when he first arrived in the 6th Century AD, and discuss the importance we all have in our own journeys through life.
Continuing along the Miner's Road, with Camaderry and Lugduff mountains looming overhead, you will be reminded of the natural majesty that surrounds you. Then, as you arrive at the ruined Miners Village, Fr. Michael brings out the wonderful stories of those who lived and worked here during the early 19th century.
Through the insightful and engaging narration of Fr. Michael, you'll feel as though you've been transported back in time, and the beauty of the surrounding landscape will make you feel as though you're walking in a dream. Sign up today and discover the fascinating history and stunning scenery of Saint Kevin's Bed and the Miners Road with Trek Ireland guided virtual tours.
