New route for 2020.....The Wicklow Mountains form a granite chain of hills stretching fifty miles from Dublin to Wexford. The Wicklow Way is the oldest long distance path in Ireland, and follows good tracks and paths alongside rivers, through glens and over hills. This route is ideal for those walking in Ireland for the first time.

For 2020 we have completely revamped this tour.  We now start in Dublin and start our journey into the mountains that form a back drop to the city, towards the pretty town of Enniskerry.  Our route continues through the Wicklow Mountains National park towards Roundwood,  Ireland's highest village!   We stay two days here with an option to walk around a lake .   We continue towards the beautiful rolling pastoral hills of southern Wicklow to the famous monastic village of Glendalough with the haunting remains of the monastery of St. Kevin with its origins going back to the 6th Century.   We have two nights in Glendalough where there are numerous walks to choose from.  The last days walk brings us further into the heart of the "Garden of Ireland" to our finish point in Glenmalure...

You will be spending your first night in Dublin where we typically stay in a lovely hotel by the harbour in Dun Laoghaire on the outskirts of the city. Dun Laoghaire has the wonderful backdrop of the Dublin mountains where your journey will begin.

There are regular trains into the city centre ( 30 minute journey ) but Dun Laoghaire itself is a very attractive place to explore with its harbour and a wide variety of restaurants.  Villages such as Dalkey and Blackrock are also very accessible.
