Hollywood’s literal translation means Kevin’s Small Church. It is also possible that the original name for Hollywood may have been Holy Wood, as a reference to Saint Kevin’s passage through.
The village has a long association with 6th Century Saint Kevin and many pilgrims passed through, following in Saint Kevin’s footsteps, on their way to the monastic settlement at Glendalough, until the practice ceased in the early 1900’s.
Local landmarks include Saint Kevin’s Chair, and Saint Kevin’s Cave. Saint Kevin’s Way is a 30km pilgrim path from Hollywood to Glendalough, and it is a good way to enjoy part of the Wicklow Mountains National Park.
