Although I live only 20 minutes drive from here I had never visited the lakes and woods around the Wicklow Way. I had took a trip up on Monday, it was too windy by the lakes so we parked by the entrance to the Wicklow Way woods and went for a lovely walk. When we returned my back window had... More

Wicklow Mountain, the trails and the history are worth the day trip. This is the other Ireland. It takes you back centuries where you can view the untouched beauty of the country. Old churches, ruins and stories of why Ireland has such a rich history and loved by so many.

We walked 3 full days of the Wicklow way with our teenage son and some other adult friends. It was approximately 20km/ day and we opted to book into local B&B's to have a big dinner and a comfy bed each night. The views were diverse and spectacular. I'd highly recommended this trip and I'm itching to finish the last... More

The Wicklow Way is an 81-mile (131-kilometre) long-distance trail that crosses the Wicklow Mountains in Ireland. It runs from Marlay Park in Dublin through County Wicklow and ends in the village of Clonegal in County Carlow. I walked this in October 2016. I was very lucky with the weather, with just a little rain on one of my 7 days.... More

Beautiful trail to walk. I started in tinahely and walked back to marlay park. If you're pressed for time i would focus on the glenmalure - marlay park part of the trail. That's the most beautiful part! Don't underestimate the climbs :)

I have seen beautiful views but this one was really nice. The scenery was green and all nature. We just loved looking over the sea and the green scenery. Very quiet and not many people too which we enjoyed. Very romantic and quiet scenery.
