One wishes to hike here to soak in glora, fauna and the diversity of the place. Sadly, signages are utterly lacking.

This place is well worth the visit and the €4 parking. The walks are superbly maintained and the views are stunning, we both walked the green and purple walks and my husband went on and did the white walk too! The green and purple there and back from the car park are about 10k together - enough for me! My husband said the white walk was superb with pat of it being made of a sleeper wood type boardwalk. Lots of people just go as far as the lake, which was beautiful and only a couple of kilometres walk. The monastic village is excellent too. Very highly recommended if you're in the area.

Did a glendalough walk with my husband from the visitor centre to the upper lake. Glendalough is beautiful, peaceful and tranquil, Beautiful meandering walkways passeing through the monastic city, forests and the lower lake. Enjoyed the amazing views of the upper lake over a picnic lunch. A must see, highly recommended.

What a wonderful place to visit and it’s only a 45km drive from Dublin City. Beautiful meandering walkways pass through the forests and lakes. The only disappointment is the food offer or lack of, there was an ice cream van and a burger stand only with very limited food offering by the paid car park and top lake. Otherwise a very nice day out for all and probably best to bring your own food along !!
