After several stops to pick up other passengers, we headed up along the coast. Our first stop was at a tower, the former home of author James Joyce, for a few coastal pictures.

We then slowly made our way to Glendalough, where St. Kevin founded a monastic settlement. We stopped at Loch Tay, where several movies (e.g. Braveheart) were filmed nearby and got some good photographs. Arriving at the settlement, we toured the ruins and then slowly walked up to the upper of two lakes near the settlement. After the stop at Glendalough, we stopped at a pub for lunch. Following lunch, we made our way back to Dublin.
We spent the rest of the day walking around, buying a couple
