36 From Our Favourite Places – Wicklow & Glendalough

January 23, 2024

November will likely be dedicated to Irish memories; it wasn’t planned that way, but since I’m in flow mode, I’m responding to what comes up in day-to-day life.

✍🏾 Without a doubt, Ireland has many beautiful places, but our favourites are Wicklow and Glendalough. Despite being very close, there are significant differences between the two places. We loved that contrast when moving from one place to another. We took most of our loved ones who visited us in Ireland to Wicklow. I loved the feeling of walking there together, that connection we all felt with those landscapes.

🍀 Life in Ireland has a different pace, and it was amusing to constantly stop on the roads to let cows, sheep, or other little animals pass; in our visits to Wicklow, we often had to pause, and those breaks reminded me that the rhythm of our lives had already changed.

Wicklow is located on the beautiful east coast of Ireland, a dreamy place to melt into its green paths in landscapes of exquisite beauty. Known as the “Garden of Ireland,” Wicklow dazzles with its diversity of landscapes, ranging from moss-covered mountains and green meadows to the spectacular coast of the Irish Sea. With its winding trails and iconic Lugnaquilla Peak, Wicklow Mountains National Park is a paradise. Additionally, the county is home to gems like Glendalough Monastery, its ancient ruins and crystal-clear lakes, and charming coastal towns like Bray and Greystones. Wicklow offers magic, where history and nature intertwine in a landscape that captivates the senses.

Glendalough, a hidden gem in the heart of the Wicklow Mountains, is a place that seems straight out of a fairy tale. This ancient monastery, founded by St. Kevin in the 6th century, is surrounded by breathtaking natural beauty. The two crystal-clear lakes and the towering cliffs that rise towards the sky create a landscape of serenity and mysticism. Glendalough is where history and nature merge into a truly magical experience that inspires.

❤️ I believe both places are must-visit stops for anyone exploring more of Ireland.
