Glendalough: Power, Prayer and Pilgrimage

Glendalough is one of Ireland’s most important monastic sites. It lies in a beautiful valley between two lakes in county Wicklow. The earliest stories of the life of St Kevin describe how a nobleman led a simple life of prayer here and banished a monster from the lake. The story of its founder speaks of someone seeking solitude and silence from the world in a remote mountain valley. The idea of retreating from the world around us and entering isolation is something that resonates strongly at this time, as our society emerges from a period of extended isolation.

Twenty-six objects which have never been exhibited before celebrate this special place.

Opening hours: Tue to Sat 10:00 - 17:00, Sun and Mon 13:00 - 17:00.
