Glendalough Lakes Things to Do: 65 reviews and 154 photos

The Cathedral is the largest building in the monastic city of Glendalough. The Cathedral was built in several stages with the earliest part being the existing nave and antae. The chancel and sacristy were added later between the 12th and 13th centuries. The main doorway also dates from this time. Under the window to the south is a stone basin used for washing sacred vessels and there is also a small aumbry in the wall.
The stones used in the building of the nave were from an earlier church.
