The Wicklow Way
The Wicklow Way is one of Europe’s most beautiful way marked trails. Originally conceived by JB Malone - an early pioneer of Irish hill walking, the Way begins just south of Dublin City at Marlay Park near Rathfarnham and stretches deep into the mountains, meandering for over 100 kilometres through countless spectacular glens and valleys concluding at the village of Clonegal in Co. Carlow. For Wicklow Way accommodation our self catering Wicklow Cottage at Aughavannagh is ideally placed on the mid –way point at the foot of Lugnaquilla mountain, making it the perfect location for those looking to explore the Wicklow Way.
For those walking the Wicklow Way south of the cottage, the route traverses old military roads, pilgrim trails and disused mountain routes with fabulous views. The scenery is always breathtaking and there is a real sense of discovering a hidden Ireland of sleepy little villages like Aughrim and Roundwood, ancient monastic settlements such as Glendalough and historic sites associated with Ireland's fascinating past.
