Shore Excursion Details

Irish Countryside & Glendalough

Dublin, Ireland

Irish Countryside & Glendalough

DETAILS

  • 5
    hrs Estimate Duration

Take a brief panoramic drive through the charming capital city of Dublin, then enjoy the serenity of the Irish countryside, combining them with the picturesque setting of Glendalough’s monastic ruins. You'll head south to the green Wicklow Mountains, and into County Wicklow, which richly deserves the title "Garden of Ireland." The county has everything that is thought Irish, in its landscape and rich history and culture. In the middle of this peaceful countryside you'll come to magical Glendalough.


Famed for its beautiful scenery and historic monuments, it has been a center for pilgrims and visitors from the time of the founding of its monastery by St. Kevin in the 6th century. The monastic settlement expanded and flourished for many years before being destroyed in the 16th century. The buildings which survived probably date from between the 8th and 12th centuries. Upon arrival, you’ll watch an introductory video which sets the story of this unique monastic site. It’s an enclave of holiness set amongst the wilderness. Following your visit to Glendalough, you'll return through the Wicklow Hills, with more magnificent scenery to enjoy as you head back towards Dublin.


Need to Know:

Note: Walking is on varied terrain for approximately 600 yards. The monastic ruins are not wheelchair accessible.
