St. Kevin of Glendalough, also known as St. Caoimhín in Irish Gaelic, was an Irish saint and hermit who lived in the 6th and 7th centuries. He is widely venerated in the Christian tradition, particularly in the Catholic Church and the Orthodox Church. This waterhole is located halfway between Hollywood and Glendalough, on the ancient medieval pilgrimage path that led to the saint’s tomb. Pilgrims use to wash their feet here.

St. Kevin is known for his ascetic life and dedication to the monastic life. He founded a monastery in the valley of Glendalough, County Wicklow, Ireland. Glendalough, which means “Valley of the Two Lakes” in Gaelic, became an important monastic and spiritual center in Ireland. St. Kevin was noted for his life of prayer and meditation in the solitude of nature, and his spiritual legacy has been passed down through the generations. The most iconic image associated with St. Kevin is his connection to wildlife, and numerous miracles related to the local fauna are attributed to him.
