Havhingsten fra Glendalough ("Sea Stallion from Glendalough") is a Danish reconstruction of Skuldelev 2, one of the Skuldelev ships. The original ship was built around 1042 near Dublin with oak from Glendalough, Wicklow, Ireland, hence the ship's name. The reconstruction was built at the shipyard of the Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde from 2000 to 2004.
Havhingsten fra Glendalough is a reconstruction of the second longest Viking longship that currently is found. It is used for research.
Research trip to Dublin 2007
A return journey to Dublin took place over the summer of 2007. The ship left Roskilde Harbour on July 1 and arrived in Dublin on August 14. She was on display in Collins Barracks, the Decorative Arts & History building of the National Museum of Ireland from 17 August 2007 until 29 May 2008. After that she was moved to Grand Canal Dock to be prepared for the journey back to Roskilde on 29 June 2008, and shortly after, the National Bank of Denmark issued a 20 DKK commemorative coin for Havhingsten.
