I went to Glendalough with a friend and we didn’t really have a plan about where we wanted to hike. There’s only one public bus to Glendalough from Dublin, so we had a very limited time there and we just wanted to wander and see what we could see. We ended up stumbling on a really cool trail (called the Spinc) that we didn’t have time to finish, but that I would love to finish some day. Let’s just say I was not prepared for how gorgeous Glendalough would be.
Pretty boardwalk, reminds me of Sapsucker Woods
For some reason, this reminds me of Yosemite
Don’t worry the sheep!
They don’t call it the Emerald Isle for nothin!
Lush grassy meadows
Pretty little stream
The upper lake
The waterfall is famous, but underwhelming after living in Ithaca
I like the red pine needles
This wooden boardwalk into the dark forest called to us both and we just had to check it out…turns out this is the Spinc trail
I thought this trail was really fun, but I think my friend almost died
The lakes from above…I heard a tourist call the Upper Lake “the real Guinness”
