Miners Road

Follow the shore of Glendalough’s Upper Lake, weaving your way through larch trees planted by miners in the early 19th century. At the lake shore you can see the first dwelling place of Saint Kevin the Hermit when he arrived here around 1,500 years ago. The trail continues along the Miners Road before opening out to a gorgeous view of the valley floor with steep rising sides of iron-like rocks and boulders. Steping past a few wild goats you find your way to the deserted miners village. This was the home to hundreds of miners who came here every day to mine iron and silver ore from the mountain over a hundred years ago. Here you take in the scenery and catch your breath as this journey comes to an end.
