Valley of Two Lakes

About 3 hours drive from Dunmanway is a place called Glendalough (pronounced as Glen da Loch), a place known for its monastic settlement. If you visit that place you will know why it is a perfect place for a monastery. So much peace, so much calm, so much nature. Ufff! It was so beautiful. There are also trails you can hike depending on your stamina level. And the place is huge. We decided to go on the long walk around the place upto the upper lake and then walk back. Again close to 3-4 hours to visit the whole place. This place holds a special place in my life now 🙂 Would definitely go back if I get another chance and may be next time, will try one of those hikes too.

    I’ve never been to Ireland, even though I only live across the Irish sea.
    From your photographs it looks beautiful!

      🙂 It is a very beautiful place, Paul. And that was just a small part of it. I wish I could cover more of it sooner.
