Outdoor Activities in Wicklow

Our Wicklow holiday cottage is a perfect base for those who enjoy the outdoor life and Wicklow is an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise. From hill walking, hiking and mountain climbing, to golf, horse riding and fishing - there really is something for everyone.  Beautiful beaches such as Brittas Bay extend along the coast only half an hour from Aughavannagh Cottage while a short drive provides a choice of fabulous golf courses.

For water sports enthusiasts there’s sailing, windsurfing and kayaking nearby whilst for equestrian lovers a wide range of stables are easily accessible for horse riding and pony trekking.

It’s the Wicklow Mountains that are probably the biggest attraction. For hikers and hill walkers of every ability the possibilities are endless. From a tough, day long ascent to the summit of Lugnaquilla directly from the cottage to a gentler stroll around Glendalough Lake - there’s so much to do. And of course the Wicklow Way walking trail runs not far from the cottage.

We’d be delighted to share our tips and insights with you. With over 20 years’ experience hiking and walking these mountains we can guarantee you some great advice about how to get off the beaten path!
