Glendalough - a place of pilgrimage

On this walking retreat, gain an insight into Glendalough, as not only a place of breathtaking natural beauty, but also a place where pilgrims have been coming for centuries, beginning with St. Kevin in the 6th century.  Walk the route he travelled, learn about his experience, appreciate the gift of nature and engage in your own personal pilgrimage, with opportunities for rest, reflection and spiritual growth. 


As we walk through the grounds of Glendalough, up to  eight "stations" can be visited, and time taken for a restful  break overlooking the beautiful Upper Lake.  Stations visited can include:

The Labyrinth

The River

Saint Saviour's Church

The Lower Lake

The Caher

St. Kevin's Cell

Reefert Church

  The Monastic City

Learn more about the historical and spiritual significance of the various stations, while also being guided in a variety of reflective activities, as we journey on this pilgrimage together.
