St. Kevin's Bed

St. Kevin's Bed

The Bed is a small cave about 10 metres above the surface of the Upper Lake, Glendalough. The cave is about two metres long and one and a half metres high, and is reputed to have been a sleeping and retreat place of St. Kevin. The cave is at least partially man-made and may have originally been a Bronze Age burial tomb, since it resembles rock-cut tombs found in the Mediterranean region. The view pictured above is from the Miners' Road on the opposite side of the lake. Accessing the Bed itself requires scrambling over steep ground and is not recommended as many visitors have become stuck, requiring the assistance of Mountain Rescue.
