Itinerary

Day 1 - Arrival

Mini Bus is available for pick up from Dublin Airport between 12pm and 1pm on the first day of your holiday. The bus then travels to Aughrim via the City centre, Bray and Rathdrum. Pick up is available along the route. If your flight arrives outside these times, please contact us and we will help you to make alternative transfer arrangements.

Day 2 - Kelly’s Lough & Arts Lough from Drumgoff

We start our walk today from Drumgoff Forest recreational park and walk initially on the Wicklow Way for a short distance before branching off and ascending Carrawaystick Mountain at just under 700mtrs overlooking Kelly’s Lough. We descend to Kelly’s Lough and pause for a break at this isolated spot before ascending Corrasilagh to Clohernagh at 800mtrs. Great views of Leinsters Highest Mountain,Lugnaquillia can be had from here. We then ascend a path and grassy ramp to the small but beautiful Arts Lough. We continue our descent to Fraughan Rock Glen, the longest Glaciated Valley in Ireland & the UK and finish our walk at Barravore car park where our Mini bus will be waiting for us. Transfer back to our accommodation via the Historic Glenmalure Lodge for some well-earned refreshments.
Comments: Wonderful views of Glenmalure Valley and Fraughan Rock Glen.
Length: 12kms
Grade: Moderate

Day 3 - Lough Ouler

After a lovely drive through Laragh and up to Wicklow gap, we start our walk at the viewing point here and ascend Tonelagee to 817mtrs. We descend from Tonelagee to overlook the beautiful Heart shaped Lough Ouler and follow Lough brook to its intersection with the Glenmacanass River. We cross the river and follow it downstream to finish at Glenmacanass waterfall.
Comments: Views of one of the finest corrie lakes in Wicklow and finishing at the breathtaking Glenmacanass waterfall.
Length: 10.5
Grade: Initially moderate to hard and then moderate to easy.

Day 4 - Lough Tay & Lough Dan

Another scenic drive brings us along the Military Road towards Sally gap. We leave our transport and walk a gentle rise to the summit of Luggala, (also known as Fancy Mountain). Here, we are treated to views over the dark waters of Lough Tay and parts of the estate owned by descendants of the Guinness Family with its private herds of Deer roaming on the extensive grounds. We descend from Luggala to the valley crossing Cloghoge brook and ascending Knocknacloghoge to 534mtrs where we get a fine view of Lough Dan. Descend to the valley crossing the Inchavore River to pick up a track to our destination at Carrigeenshinnagh, all the while hardly ever-losing sight of the lake.
Comments: Two fantastic, but different lakes for the price of one.
Length: 10.5kms
Grade: Mostly easy with a moderate ascent.

Day 5 - The Lakes of Glendalough

Transport to the historic monastic settlement of Glendalough. Short walk from the car park through forest and out on to the eastern slopes of Camaderry. A gentle climb with ever increasing panoramic views takes us to the summit of Camaderry and past the man made Upper Lake on Turlough Hill before descending to cross the Glenealo River. We then follow the erosion-preventing boardwalk, which takes us back to the valley floor and the Upper Lake car park via the Spink and the Pollanass waterfall.
Comments: Absolutely Spectacular views of the Upper and Lower Lakes of Glendalough, the cliffs of the Spink and the Miners Village.
Length: 14kms
Grade: Moderate

Day 6 - Departure & Tour of the Glendalough Monastic Village

After breakfast, we leave your accommodation and drive to the visitor centre in Glendalough. After a video presentation showing the history of Glendalough and the Monastic Village in the visitors centre, we take a walk around the Ancient Monastic settlement. St Kevin in the 6th Century founded this early Christian Ecclesiastical settlement. Set in a glaciated valley with two lakes, the monastic remains include a round tower, stone churches and decorated crosses. Transfer to Rathdrum or Bray railway stations, Dublin Airport, Dublin City Centre (or anywhere in between).
