Ireland's oldest long-distance walking trail

Ireland’s oldest long-distance hiking trail takes you through the eventful history of Ireland. You start your journey amidst the green hills of Carlow and set off to Marlay Park in the south of Dublin. Friendly hosts welcome you at the end of each stage, music plays in the pubs and an Irish breakfast prepares you for the daily hiking tours.These lead you on scenic paths through the Wicklow Mountain National Park–a small nature paradise near the Irish coast. On clear days your eyes wander across the sea to the coast of Great Britain. The Wicklow Way is a wonderful long-distance hiking trail for anyone who wants to experience Ireland up close

Tour character: level 2

The first stages are mostly flat and are well suited to prepare for the Wicklow Mountains.The tour mostly takes place on well marked trails, forest roads and every once in a while on side roads.
