Activity description

The perfect balance of ancestry and adventure - discover Ireland's rugged, romantic soul on mountain biking excursions to the iconic 6th-century settlement of Glendalough.

There's a haunting, static spirituality to Glendalough's crumbling ruins and weatherworn architecture - a stillness sought by monastic monks that took sanctuary in its peaceful glens, untamed woodlands and quaint villages. Overlooked by the Camaderry mountains, this historic site is visited by adventurous pilgrims of all backgrounds, drawn to its religious significance and stunning scenery.

Location
Situated on the Irish sea, County Wicklow is a 30-minute drive from Dublin in the Republic of Ireland. Glendalough or Gleann dá Loch in Gaelic, which means 'Valley of Two Lakes' is an ancient monastic village nestled in a glacial valley - made popular by its scenic cycling routes, hiking paths and religious architecture.

Activity
Starting in the small village of Laragh, this guided group mountain biking tour uses cycle paths set away from busy roads and traffic. Traverse the local countryside, monasteries and ruins through Glendalough at a casual pace - learning about its important history and mythical folklore.

Conditions
Available throughout the year, this excursion will traverse varied cross-country terrain in a temperate (yet infamously unpredictable) climate. The average annual temperature is 9.8 °C in Wicklow. Precipitation here averages 895 mm.
