    Statue and cave


Near the picturesque village of Hollywood in County Wicklow, Ireland, stands a statue that pays tribute to the enduring influence of St. Kevin. This statue, located in the vicinity of the village, stands as a tangible testament to the spiritual and cultural connection to the saint. Hollywood, County Wicklow, is part of the Saint Kevin’s Way, a marked trail leading from Hollywood to Glendalough, a revered pilgrimage site.

The statue is strategically located near Saint Kevin’s Cave, a small natural cave believed to have been used by Saint Kevin and possibly by pilgrims on their way to Glendalough. This sacred site not only presents a historical connection to the saint, but also forms part of the rich network of pilgrimage sites in the region. In addition, nearby is Saint Kevin’s Chair, a ritual stone that, according to legend, offers protection against back ailments if you can get up from it without using your hands.
