MEI Cultural Spotlight #7 – Glendalough

March 24, 2016

In the heart of county Wicklow, and only about 45km from the stressful capital city, lies this magical green valley.

Glendalough’s tranquillity derives from two shimmering glacial lakes nestled between lush, sloping mountains and fairytale waterfalls.

Wicklow is known as the ‘Garden of Ireland’ because of its diverse landscape and beauty but it also boasts a myriad of wonderful gardens both formal and informal as well as a number of parks and woodland walks.  The National Park covers an area of 20,000 hectares and covers much of upland Wicklow. The National Park provides protection for the landscape and wildlife and covers areas such as Lugnaquilla and Liffey Head Bog complexes and Glendalough Wood Nature Reserve.

Wicklow Mountains National Park runs a wide variety of activities for groups and individuals of all ages. Activities are free of charge and include field trips, nature walks, lectures and workshops.
