Description:Glendalough - The Glen of the Two Lakes - is a valley celebrated for its beauty and its historical and archaeological interest. The valley is home to one of Ireland's most atmospheric monastic sites, established by St. Kevin 498. The Round Tower in Glendalough, probably the most famous of all the landmarks in County Wicklow, was built almost 1,000 years ago by the monks of St. Kevinís monastery. On arriving in Ireland, the Normans appropriated the monastery, and then united it with the See of Dublin in 1214. After this Glendalough gradually declined and fell into decay, until restored in the years 1875-80 and again in 1911-12.
