Glendalough (or Gleann Da Loch, meaning ‘The Glen of the Two Lakes’) is situated in the heart of the Wicklow Mountains National Park. The ancient monastery is a fascinating site, having been founded in the 6th century by St. Kevin. Set in a glaciated valley with two lakes, the monastic remains include a superb round tower, stone churches and ancient ruins. The round tower is one of the most recognizable landmarks in the area. The site also includes a Celtic high cross, St. Mary’s Church and St. Kevin’s Church. The remains of three stone crosses and a stone fort are also to be found between the upper and lower lakes.
Glendalough became an important place of pilgrimage and a sacred energy center when the Celtic monastery of St. Kevin flourished there from the 6th to the 11th century. Long before the monastery was built, Glendalough was a Druids school and before that a sacred place for people seeking healing, encouragement and blessing for their lives. After the Monastery closed and especially during the 17th and 18th centuries, pilgrimage still continued to visit this sacred land and was an expressions of Irish people’s spirituality.

As we depart Dun Laoghaire we travel to Glendalough with a stop at Lough Tay and we soak up the breathtaking Wicklow mountain scenery and rolling green countryside at locations made famous by movies such as Braveheart and P.S. I Love You.
On arrival at Glendalough we start the day with a Kryon Channelling. Bring a plastic bag to sit on.
Then we take a 20 minute walk up with Jane Donald and Rosie O’Toole to the upper lake followed by a walk up to the Poulanass Waterfall with its breathtaking views, native flora and fauna, and moss covered trees. We will stop the hidden Crystal Forest. This is a Fairy’s healing center and where large quartz’s crystals grow out under the tree’s roots. There is a brook that some people like to dip their toe in.
Irish vibrational healer Jane Donald will share with us a guided meditation.
Then we travel along a trail back down coming out at the Reefert Church who’s name derives from the Irish for Royal Cemetery, Rig Fearta, and is believed to be a burial site for the local chiefs of the O’Toole and O’Byrne clan, and possibly St. Kevin himself. After a short bathroom stop or pick up a coffee or an Irish Ice Cream we head back down to the lower lake center with a short 20 minute walk.
A moderate level of fitness is required. If you feel you are unable to walk that far we do our guide Maria who will take a group around the lower monastery ruins during the morning session.
Then we have free time to have some lunch and the group will then have time to explore the Glendalough monastery with our guides Jane, Rosie and Maria who will bring you round the site starting at the Gateway to the Monastic City (800s-900s A.D.) Passing on through the gate you will see all around you the graves of the local population, some of the early tombstones being very finely engraved. This gives an unusual atmosphere to the site and provides a spiritual link to the beliefs and wishes of the early monastic settlers.” There is also the cathedral, St. Kevin’s church to explore and also the site of the ancient cemetery with its high crosses.
One of the outstanding feature of Glendalough is the Round Tower, probably dating from the early 1100s A.D. Round Towers were spread throughout Ireland and were built from the 950s to the late 1100s A.D. Contrary to popular belief; they were not built principally as places of refuge, but as bell towers, which is the translation of the Irish word “Cloigtheach”. The round towers of Ireland are seen as a symbol of Celtic Christianity, but their arrangement in the landscape reveals a greater mystery. The layout of the round towers across the country matches up with the layout of constellations of stars in the sky as they are at the winter solstice. This echoes the layout of the pyramids at Giza that are arranged in the shape of the constellation of Orion. Henry O’Brien has suggested that the round towers date back to the ancient Tuatha De Danann (who inhabited Ireland before the Celts) who he says were from Atlantis.
During our free time you may also wish to visit the Glendalough visitor center €4. The Visitor Centre has an interesting exhibition and an audio-visual show. French, Italian and Spanish guided tours are available.
We meet back together. Where we will have a second Kryon Channelling there or if time permits at the a nearby stone circle before returning to Dun Laoghaire Hotel.
