Tour Route Highlights*
* Tour route may vary in inclement weather or if you opt to do an alternative to the Glendalough Mountain Walk.
Aside from day tours to the Glendalough Valley, Walkabout Wicklow offer a range of hill walking activities for people of all levels in areas all throughout the Wicklow Mountains.
Here are a few of my favorites:
1. A day in Loch Tay
Level: Beginner/ Intermediate
Hill walk/ hike duration: 3 Hours (But you will be gone for most of the day!)
This hike is a real favorite, with its beautiful views and amazing wildlife. Indeed, on one of my walks on this route I was lucky enough to take a photo of the baby deer on the home page, shortly after it was born. Old ruins, green fields and glorious lochs, this is a great walk for those that want to see some of the magnificent Irish countryside, but have only got one day to do so. Courtesy pick up and drop off from Dublin city. The drive out to the walk location is a real treat in itself, and it includes a detailed commentary on local history and culture.
2. Marching on MaulinLevel: Beginner/ Intermediate
Hill walk/ hike duration: 2.5 Hours (But you will be gone for most of the day!)
Follow a winding track up minor forestry roads, glimpsing spectacular views until you reach a clearing and see the magnificent rocks of Raven's Glen. Higher and higher you walk, over an ancient stone wall, and finally to the summit of Maulin. The views from the top are well worth the climb, with the oddly shaped Sugar Loaf mountain, and the imposing Djouce, both dominating the horizon. If the weather is exceptionally clear you will be rewarded with views of the Welsh mountains. Courtesy pick up and drop off from Dublin City. The drive out to the walk location is a real treat in itself, and it includes a detailed commentary on local history and culture.
