Crossing the Wicklow Mountains and finishing in Dublin city, The Wicklow Way is Ireland’s classic walking trail. Starting in the picturesque hamlet of Moyne, The Wicklow Way takes walkers through pretty little Irish country towns and villages where you can experience authentic Irish hospitality.

The Wicklow Way covers a variety of terrain from quiet country roads (boreens) to forests, mountain paths and bogs. The terrain can be demanding in sections but achievable for walkers with average fitness. If you do take on the challenge, you will be rewarded with fantastic scenery and a wealth of history, as well as legendary Irish warmth and hospitality.

The Wicklow Way was the first way marked walking trail in Ireland, being formally established in 1980, and remains one of the country’s favourites. It is also part of a European long distance trek: the E8, covering 4,700km from Cork through Britain, Europe and on to Turkey.
