South of Ireland hiking tour – Day 2

We begin our day with an interpretive tour of the monastic “city” at Glendalough. Founded by St. Kevin in the 6th century, Glendalough is an exquisite medieval Irish monastery and remarkable reminder of a uniquely Irish way of life. Next we hike along the Wicklow Way and into Glenlo Valley to experience the beauty and solitude that St. Kevin sought there. At the conclusion of our hike we leave behind the austerity of Kevin‘s hermitage and return to our lodgings in Killiney. All meals included.

Hiking: 7-9 miles, 4-6 hours; Terrain: Green roads, hilly trails, and boardwalk; Example: Glendalough & The Spinc is 8 miles, 1774′ ascent. Driving: 1.5 hours.
