Visitors and pilgrims have been coming to Glendalough since early Celtic times, and today it is one of the most-visited ancient sites in Ireland. This detailed guidebook brings out the timeless mystery of this ancient and sacred place, and reveals the treasures of the rich traditions of the area, the legends and stories of its patron, St Kevin, and the lives, lifestyles and beliefs of its inhabitants since earliest times. Uniquely, this guidebook is also a book on Celtic spirituality, based on a pilgrimage journey through Glendalough where both visitor and pilgrim are helped to make connections between the Celtic spirituality of St Kevin and his followers and a spirituality relevant for their own lives today. "It brings to both pilgrims and tourists a new source of inspiration linking the sixth century spirituality of Kevin and his followers with modern times in a meaningful way. In fact, it fills a void and gives food for thought and personal reflection."--The Irish Catholic.
