If you're seeking a view of Ireland's sweeping scenery, visit the rugged and romantic Vale of Glendalough, a glacial valley known for its medieval monastic settlement. Translated as "Valley of Two Lakes," the town sits amidst the forest with two dark lakes at its center. Vale of Glendalough draws tourists to this corner of the country with the many churches and buildings from its days as a monastic settlement. Though the area was founded in the 6th century, nearly all of these historical structures date back to the 11th and 12th century. Plan how to spend your time in Vale of Glendalough and other destinations in Ireland using our Ireland trip planning tool.
