“For thousands of years people have been drawn to ‘the valley of the two lakes‘ for its spectacular scenery, rich history, archaeology and abundant wildlife. Glendalough is a remarkable place that will still your mind, inspire your heart and fill your soul. Access to the Monastic City: The monuments and lakes are accessible all year round at anytime of the day however the car parks may have the barrier down early in the morning and late in the evening. There is no charge to see the Monastic sites(churches/round tower) or the Upper and Lower Lakes except the car park fees for the Upper Lake and the Visitor Centre at the Monastic Site. ”

“Powerscourt Waterfall and its surrounding valley are also owned by the Powerscourt estate. At 121 metres, it is the highest waterfall in Ireland. It is 6km from the Main Estate at the foothills of the Wicklow Mountains and is one of Ireland’s most beautiful parklands with well maintained walking trails. The area is full of indigenous and imported flora, including giant redwoods, as well as a wide variety of fauna including deer. There is a playground as well as a kiosk for snacks if you don’t pack a picnic. I would recommend driving if possible as the public transport options are long and winding. ”
