Wilderness Activities Ireland

The Wicklow Way begins in Marlay Park, Dublin and travels south-west across the Dublin and Wicklow uplands, then through the rolling hill country of Wicklow to finish in the small County Carlow village of Clonegal 127 kilometres later.

A combination of suburban parkland, forest trails, wild and scenic mountain landscape and finally rolling countryside offers a wonderfully varied, 1 to 4 day experience for a hill-walker of average fitness. En route the Wicklow Way passes mountain lakes, long-deserted homesteads, memorials to historic events of past centuries and extensive remains of the early Christian monastic settlement in the beautiful Glendalough valley.
