Walk the Wicklow Way

Enjoy the best of Ireland’s oldest long distance trail on a six-day Wicklow Way hiking adventure from Dublin. Covering reasonable distances daily, pass through open moorland and forested heaths, and stop by small towns along the way for a welcome dose of Irish hospitality. Explore a monastic settlement full of folklore in Glendalough, peer over the Lough Tay as you stop by Luggala, and consider some summit treks for some extraordinary vistas. Joined by a group of likeminded active adventurers and a certified mountain hiking guide, this is the ideal way to actively explore Irish countryside.

Activities

  • Glendalough entrance
  • Glendalough loop walk with additional mountain guide
  • Powerscourt Distillery visit
  • End of trek celebratory drink

Highlights

  • Hike through the hills and valleys of the Wicklow Mountains National Park, discovering fields that once housed potato farms, and emerge from lush green forests to peer towards deep coloured lakes.
  • Descend into Glendalough and visit a monastery, where a local folklorist will explain some of the histories and mysteries of the trails. Ireland is much more than leprechauns and four leaf clovers!
  • If you ask us, some of the best views are a little off the main trail. Take a rest stop on top of Luggala, overlooking the Guinness-coloured Lough Tay, and consider summiting Derrybawn and Mullcor peaks.
  • The small sleepy towns in the Wicklow Mountains are arguably as charming as the countryside itself. Rest and recoup in comfort as you stay in handpicked bed and breakfasts along your journey.
  • Did you really head to Ireland if you didn’t try some of the local drop? Stop by the Powerscourt Distillery one afternoon for a group whiskey tasting of some of the best Irish tipples on offer.
