Glendalough or Glendaloch (Irish: Gleann Dá Loch, meaning “Valley of two lakes”) is a glacial valley in County Wicklow, Ireland.
It is renowned for its early medieval monastic settlement founded in the 6th century by St. Kevin, a hermit priest, and partly destroyed in 1398 by English troops. Kevin, a descendant of one the ruling families in Leinster has founded a monastery where the “two rivers form a confluence”. His fame as a holy man spread and he attracted numerous followers. He died in about 618 A.D.
For six centuries afterwards, Glendalough flourished.
Around 1042, oak timber from Glendalough was used to build the longest (30m) Viking long ship ever recorder. A modern replica of that ship was built in 2004 and is currently located in Roskilde, Denmark.
