Glendalough

Glendalough is a glacial valley in the Wicklow Mountains and the site of an ancient monastic settlement that dates from the 6th century. The graveyard at Glendalough always makes me think of the opening scene of Great Expectations, but there were no convicts to be seen skulking around during my visit...

Glendalough and nearby Sally Gap, are beautiful in any season.
Though when I was there, we had just sadly missed the heather blooms, which would have covered all the mountains in a soft, purple haze. More images on Flickr.
