Begin with a transfer to Glendalough, famous the world over for its 6th century “Monastic City”. Spend some time here exploring this ancient site. This place was an incredible school of learning until in 1214 AD when the Normans destroyed it. One of the top attractions in Ireland’s “Ancient East”, you can visit the information center which brings guests back in time to when St Kevin founded this monastery and settlement.

When you have taken the time to discover Glendalough, walk through the wild and remote Glenmalure Valley. This is mainly a woodland walk with some wildlife on view, plus vistas of waterfalls and the Wicklow Mountains, one of which is Mt Lug at 925m and the highest in Ireland outside of County Kerry. The Poulanass Waterfall is particularly lovely, with clear yet bright green water.

Founded in the 7th-century it became a magnet for pilgrims for over 1000 years. Glendalough means 'valley of two lakes', the confluence of rivers Glendasan and Glenealo made this a natural site for settlement. Formed in the Ice Age, its wooded slopes and valley floor provide a rich environment in flora and fauna.

Ausrüstung

We recommend taking a good waterproof jacket and trousers with you, plus a hat and gloves as the weather can be changeable at any time of the year. There are some more exposed landscapes on this day too, so make sure you dress in (breathable) layers so you do not get cold. A waterproof cover for your rucksack is also useful. 

We also recommend wearing gaiters to protect your legs and to stop mud and water getting into your boots if you have to cross boggy sections, or if it is a wet day. 

Other essential items are water, enough food and snacks to last between supply points, blister treatment and first aid kit, insect repellant, biodegradable toilet tissue, and a whistle and torch.
