Abstract
Glendalough (Gleann Dá Loch, ‘Glen of the Two Loughs’) in the Wicklow Mountains is a beautiful landscape, famed for its cultural and natural heritage. It is the place that St Kevin (Cóemgen) adopted as a spiritual retreat, to be close to nature, and where he founded a celebrated monastery, probably in the later sixth century.
