Getting Here and Around in Glendalough


Getting Here and Around

If you're driving, consider taking the scenic route along R115, but be prepared for awesome, austere mountain passes. Don't take this route if you're in a hurry—it takes about an hour and 45 minutes, while the faster route on the N11 takes one hour—and don't expect a lot of signage—just concentrate on the nifty views.

St. Kevin's Bus has daily service between Dublin and Glendalough, with a stop in Bray. The trip takes 1½ hours. There is no direct train to Glendalough, but you can take the Irish Rail train from Dublin as far as Rathdrum (1 hour 20 minutes) and then take a taxi (approximately €10) the 11 km (7 miles) from there to Glendalough.
