You are never going to experience the mountains in a way that is quite as unique as it is in Glendalough (Gleann Dá Loch, “Valley of the Two Lakes”). There are plenty of activities that you can do in this particular location and you really need to plan your stay if you want to experience them all. This would not be possible in just one day, so make sure that you make the most out of each day you spend here.
Cycling is one of the most common and recommended experiences that anyone visiting Glendalough should consider doing. You will be able to enjoy incredible scenery in the many trails available for cyclists.
If you prefer a more relaxing experience while also enjoying a popular sport, you can try out the Wicklow golfing course. You will also get to enjoy some breathtaking scenery all around you while you play and this is one of the reasons why this location is so popular for such a large number of golfers, both professional and amateur.
There are many locations for walking and hiking, but if you want an even more powerful adrenaline rush, we recommend that you look for the climbing areas that range from basic to extremely difficult and only for those who are daredevils. If you want to enjoy the scenery and avoid having to walk or cycle, you can do it on horseback too.
Glendalough offers a very integral experience for people looking for all kinds of activities while being fully surrounded by nature.
