Biased here, because this beautiful park is where I got engaged! Even though it was raining, there were still stunning views and so much to explore. I got engaged on a bench overlooking the upper lake which was incredible to see. There were sheep on...More

If you have the time, take any route across the mountains to enjoy spectacular views on practically empty roads where you can see the heather and ancient rocks.

Wow, incredible views and experience. We hiked the Spinc and Glenealo Valley (white) trail around the rim of the upper lake at dusk. We left the Glendalough hotel which is right next (like 50ft) to the arch entrance to the monastic site. Definitely take the...More

Travelling from Cork to Dublin is a nice stop by. Go up the mountains following the Google maps route on the way to Glendalough, and then go all the way down to the lake. You will have an amazing time!

You will not believe the beauty of this place. The roads are close to perfect and the the views on either side are insane! There are multiple trail walks to be done in the park but i'd recommend the one at the Glendalough Visitors Centre

Yes. The monastic site is located within the park. You have to walk there, not far. But, we’ll worth it. Experience history and read the names of those who are buried there on the tombstones.

Heathers in Laragh. Perfect position. Try the walking over the Sally Gap. A desolate beauty. Or alternatively, the Wicklow Way.
