Easter Breaks in Glendalough

You can enjoy an array of colours and plenty of wildlife in Glendalough Valley at Easter. A walk through the Monastic City and down to the Lakes in the morning is a great start to your break in Wicklow National Park. The Glendalough Valley has so many different options to explore, with a range of walks and hikes that rise up to fantastic panoramic views of County Wicklow. Wild deer roam the valley and you may spot red squirrels in the trees around you. Gorse bushes sprinkle the vista with dappled yellow flowers along the trails and on up the hills.
