    ENGLISH VERSION: Get out of DUBLIN and see the beautiful green irish landscape. Go southbound to WILKLOW COUNTY and discover GLENDALOUGH, a monastic site that was founded by St. Kevin in the 6th century. A MUST SEE only 50 kilometers (31 miles) from BAILE ATHA CLIATH (Dublin). To me, typically irish. You'll love it.
    TRIP TIP: By car, take the N 7 eastbound to leave DUBLIN, then the N 11 southbound.

    VERSION FRANCAISE: : Sortez de DUBLIN et visitez le merveilleux arrière-pays, tout en verdure qui fait la beauté le l'Irlande. Allez vers le Sud dans le county de WILKLOW et découvrez un endroit magnifique: GLENDALOUGH. Il s'agit d'un ancien monastère fondé par St.Kevin, au 6ème siècle. A voir absolument, pour moi, c'est typiquement irlandais. TRIP TIP: En voiture, sortir de DUBLIN en empruntant la N 7 vers l'est puis la N 11 vers le Sud.

    Explore enchanting Glendalough, a 6th century monastic settlement in County Wicklow... one of the most famous and captivating places in Ireland. The spectacular hidden mountains and barren boglands at Sally's Gap will definitely leave you breathless. BTW, Sally's Gap was the location for the movie 'Braveheart'. You'll soon discover why if you were to visit this place.

    For more details, please surf straight to my WICKLOW travel page. Thanks!

    Glendalough: KEVIN'S KITCHEN
    During raids people took shelter between the ceiling and the roof of the church.

    GLENDALOUGH
    South of Dublin, an ancient Christian site, a tiny wonderful valley full of green and quiete.
    This is a postcard (I couldn't fly !).
