All are welcome to join us at 7.30 pm on Thursday 18th December for a unique Christmas celebration in one of the most evocative settings in Wicklow. We will begin with a candlelit procession through the monastic gates of Glendalough and proceed to the ruins of the cathedral for an evening of traditional carol singing in the monastic style. Some of our most familiar carols would have been sung here by the monks of Glendalough themselves in the 8 and 9 centuries.
Admission is free and tea and coffee will be provided afterwards in the Glendalough Hotel courtesy of Pat Casey. Assemble in the hotel car park at 7.15 pm. Wrap up warmly and bring your own lantern/ torch and singing voice. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
