Lough (pronounced lock) in Irish means “lake”. This is such a pretty tourist site. We picked the perfect day to go see this area. It was partly cloudy and around 45 degrees f (~8 degrees c) that day. We toured the cemetery and the old watch tower. I was surprised to see real mountains in Ireland! It reminded me a lot like Utah. The hike is easy half mile to the first lake and then one mile to the second lake. Glen in Irish means the number two so Glendalough means “of the two lakes”.
I’m not much of a landscape photographer but Dallin really likes scenic photography so I decided to give it a try.
Here are pictures of the cemetery:
