Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I wanted to hike a bit of the Wicklow Way before leaving Ireland, so my friend and I took a bus to Marley Park and fit in what we could before thunderstorms set in. I'd love to do the entire trail!

If you're starting from Dublin, the trailhead is well marked, as well as the route around Marley Park (which is a lovely forest experience). The surprise to us was that you then walk along a road, under a motorway, and uphill past some large manors before entering the Kilmashogue Forest. But it's all part of the Wicklow Way! Even our trail section changed elevation quickly and had some nice views of Dublin as well as sheep peacefully grazing alongside the trail.

This was a great way to get out of Dublin for a bit more hiking before a long plane flight, and the trail definitely deserves its good reviews.

We had a fantastic Day. All around the Wicklow County, very interesting and not always sitting on the bus. Vlad the driver new the roads well and navigated with expertise. Brian kept us engaged all day with his knowledge, interesting stories and fables. This tour is worth doing, not expensive.

Look at reviews of Wicklow Gap (it is the same) and Sally Gap (nearby). The driving is adventurous, the views marvelous, and the weather is changeable. Not to be missed.

This area of Ireland is not to be missed. Very different from anything else we saw. If you start in Roundwood and take highway R759 you will go through some amazing countryside. Stop near Lough Tay and find the trailhead. (There are a few parking areas). You can take a spectacular hike on a beautifully maintained trail (much of which is raised boardwalk) and see amazing views in every direction. Then, drive towards Sally Gap. It's hauntingly beautiful and unique. So worthwhile. You can continue on to Dublin from there. Country roads (narrow) but typical of those in Ireland.

There are several hikes to do in the Wicklow NP. The landscape is really beautiful, specially if you have a clear day and can see all the way to the sea. Bring plenty of water, and food, and good hiking shoes. Weather can change quite abruptly.

We didn't know what to expect from this road... so it did take us by surprise.

Very unique gloomy sad atmosphere. Unique colors. A feeling of decay.

Like a nightmare...

A real must
