The Wicklow Way, Wicklow

The Wicklow Way is a 129-kilometre (80-mile) long-distance trail that crosses the Wicklow Mountains in Ireland. It runs from Marlay Park in the southern suburbs of Dublin through County Wicklow and ends in the village of Clonegal in County Carlow. It is designated as a National Waymarked Trail by the Irish Sports Council and is waymarked by posts with a yellow "walking man" symbol and a directional arrow.

Typically completed in 5–7 days, it is a strenuous hike and is one of the busiest of Ireland's National Waymarked Trails, with up to 24,000 people a year walking the most popular sections.

The Wicklow Way explores unspoilt trails, remote scenery, lakes, glacial valleys, forests and gentle farmland. It passes through the historic area of Glendalough, it also goes through Enniskerry where you can visit Powerscourt House and Gardens.
