The beautiful monastic village of Glendalough, part of the Wicklow national park. Established in the 6th century, it was a strange step back to the medieval age. The ruins are mainly of churches, kitchens and houses, a rocky path and not to mention an american choir tour group that filled most of the village! It’s amazing to see how this settlement still survives today and preserved in its natural beauty. One thing I was in awe of is that no cement was used to to build the walls, if you look at the pictures it’s just rocks! We also saw the grave of Ireland’s longest living man too!

Hope you all enjoy Glendalough through my pictures!
