Dublin Day Trips: Things to Do in Glendalough

more than a year ago
For over eight decades St. Kevin's Bus Service, a 100% Irish, family-run business, has been spiriting visitors the 30miles from Dublin to the Co. Wicklow village of Glendalough.

Named after, and inspired by, Glendalough’s St. Kevin, the modern coach tour follows a picture postcard route to the 6th Century site where the Saint established a Christian settlement.

Stunning scenery unfolds as you head south along the coast to Bray, then inland and upward through the Great and Little Sugar Loaf mountains. Yet more mountains, lakes and heather-clad plains dip in and out of view as you wend your way to Roundwood – said to be Ireland’s highest village – and past Annamoe Valley and the village of Laragh where fantastic views of Glendalough and its 33m Round Tower are revealed.

Once at Glendalough, take time to explore the seven churches of St. Kevin - where a Monastic settlement was founded - and the shores of the village’s two enchanting lakes from which Glendalough gets its name. For more info visit: www.glendaloughbus.com
