One of the greatest , but destroyed , attraction of Ireland . GLENDALOUGH
It has been in fromer times the religions centre of Ireland. Now ther are only some detroyed building .
GLENDALOUGH is placed on the R 756 from Hollywood to Wicklow .
It´s a nice old castle with a beautiful parc around. You have the possibility to make the big tour (one hour) or the little tour (1/2 hour) through the parc. You will see a tower, the Jananese Garden, the Animal Cemetry...
After visiting Powerscourt Garden you can make a trip too a beautiful WATERFALL (it should be the biggest one in Ireland...)! You can take the shuttle bus or you can hike! ( but to hike -like me- can be dangerous because of the lot´s of cars on the street and it´s only this possibilty to hike to the waterfall)

The 185 (to Bray train station) and 44 (to Dublin) are the public transport options to get there.

Powerscourt Estate is the Wicklows is a magnificent manor house and gardens. The formal gardens are among the finest in Ireland.
My husband and I visited in 1999 on a very rainy day...not just a light mist, but heavy rains accompanied us as we traversed the Wicklows. It was the only day we had to spend in the area, and I love gardens, so decked in raingear, we had the gardens to ourselves!
