Ireland - Glendalough 22.08.2017


About 45 minutes away from Dublin you will find this small historic center. It is a very nice hiking route. The whole path and environment are ready to enjoy nature and cultural tourism.
The first part of the road passes quite plain. Walking along the valley we will enjoy on our left two magnificent lakes and to the right of centuries-old tree forests. Following the path, intuitively brings us to the ruins of the old village of Glendalough.
After the village, the paved road will gradually ascend, making some zigzag. On our left, the water that feeds the lakes mentioned above is sprouting vigorously and with some reddish brown color, suppose that due to the ferritic composition of this area.
A wooden bridge with railings will help us to cross the small torrent and will lead us to the top or panoramic (as long as the fog does not make an appearance) of the excursion.
During this second part of the excursion, we will walk in almost all the route through wooden planks joined lengthwise with a non-slip metallic mesh and inverted U-shaped nails stuck to the wood, causing a very good grip. They are an excellent invention to not wet our feet if this area is always moist. They remember very much the old planks that supported the rails of the railroad and which were then recycled to use in gardening, taking advantage of the good results of the exposed wood in the open air.
In the final stretch of the excursion we will enjoy the ruins of the monastery of St. Kevin's Church and its cemetery that will not leave you indifferent.

Health and enjoy yourself.
