Ireland's oldest long-distance hiking trail takes you through Ireland's eventful history. You start the journey amidst the green hills of Carlow and make your way to Marlay Park in south Dublin. Friendly hosts welcome you after each stage, music plays in the pubs and an Irish breakfast will get you fit for the daily hiking tours. These take you along scenic paths into the Wicklow Mountain National Park - a small natural paradise near the Irish coast. On clear days, your eyes will stretch across the sea to the coast of Great Britain. The Wicklow Way is a wonderful long-distance hike for anyone who wants to experience Ireland up close.

 

MINIMUM PARTICIPANTS
• 2 persons

Arrive on your own during the day.

In the morning transfer to a small pub north of Tinahely. Here you start the tour on the Wicklow Way and walk through a small fairy forest up to Mangan Wood. Today's tour takes you past sheep pastures and through small forests into the valley of the River Derry. Here you follow a quiet side road to Sandyford Bridge, where you spend the night on a small farm.

A hike up to Sheilstown Forest and then down to Iron Bridge. Today's destination is the wild valley of Glenmalure. Irish rebels sought refuge here for years until the English crown established a base in the valley to put an end to the rebellion. An old trading post and the ruins of the military barracks still bear witness to this turbulent time.

Views of Lugnaquillia Mountain - the highest peak in the Wicklow Mountains - accompany you today up to the pass of Lugduff Gap. From here you descend into the picturesque valley of Glendalough. For the first Christian monks, this was a place of contemplation and prayer for centuries. The Wicklow Way then takes you further to the small village of Laragh.

You leave Laragh and climb up Paddock Hill. Dense forests are soon replaced by untouched heathland in the Wicklow Mountain National Park. The tour then continues to the Old Bridge and from here you take side roads to the small village of Roundwood. The short stage gives you time for a hike around the reservoirs of Vartry Reservoir.

The royal stage of the Wicklow Way: You will soon reach the first viewpoint from which you can take a look at the nearby Lough Dan. You will then reach an open area from which on a clear day you can see as far as the coast of Great Britain. The path takes you up to Djouce Mountain and, with views of Ireland's highest waterfall, to Crone Forest, where today's stage ends.

First the path takes you along idyllic paths into the valley of Glencullen. Here you can enjoy the view from Fairy Hill over the final stages and over the city of Dublin. You then descend into Marlay Park, where the hike ends at the Wicklow Way. Bus ride (excl.) to Dublin city center.

After breakfast departure on your own.
