Self-Guided Wicklow Way Hike

Ireland’s Ice Age has left a wonderful legacy in Wicklow National Park with its unique topography. Aptly named the “Garden” of Ireland. Corrie lakes, U-shaped valleys, alpine heath and mountain cliffs captivate the visitor in a largely uninhabited landscape with vistas of the Irish Sea.

Discover the picturesque valleys of Glenmalure and the Glen of Immal. Hike in the rugged beauty of Lugnaquilla and experience the peace and tranquillity of Glendalough. This is home to a 6th century monastic settlement nestled in the valley of two lakes. In addition to this the warmth of the people, the cosy pubs, the charming villages and delicious organic food and you have just found your “perfect” Wicklow Way Hike!
