Glendalough is in the Wicklow National Park which is situated south of Dublin on 20,000 hectares of mountain scenery with many roads crossing through it. A lot of the National Park has no facilities and is left mostly untouched and natural.
Glendalough has many way marked trails/routes from easy to difficult. The Visitor Centre in Glendalough sells a Trail Guide for only €0.50. The maps list nine way marked routes with the shortest distance being a few kilometres and the longest 11 kilometres. You can start all 9 walks from the lobby of the Glendalough Hotel. Grab a bite to eat in Caseys Bar & Bistro at the start or finish of your walk and pick up your walking snacks in our seasonal coffee shop.
