The Wicklow Way Trail map

Although a lot of guides indicated the Wicklow way running from north to south at Walking Holiday Ireland our tours run from south to north. We do this because the southern Wicklow mountains are lower and therefore the walks only get a little harder as we near Dublin.

Please note that decent waterproof hiking boots are a must as part of the track can be muddy and wet. The terrain and trail are well maintained by volunteers but some areas can be a little bit tricky depending on weather conditions.
