Day 2 – Part 1

We headed out to the country side this morning to visit the ancient ruins of the Monastery at Glendalough founded by Saint Kevin in the 7th century. Today’s post is going to be divided in two. First part is about the trip to Glendalough.

It is amazing that these tour buses can navigate some of these narrow country roads. First stop was the ancient monastery founded by St Kevin at Glendalough. The monastery was founded in the 7th century AD.

Much of the site is wonderfully preserved.

Here are a few pictures:


And finally, you can’t have a tourist site without food. I give you a picture of a vendor with the name of “Kevin’s Cones”.


Tomorrow I will write about Guiness.
