The Wicklow Way (forthcoming August 2017 (2nd ed, revised 2017))

Dublin to Clonegal

Jacquetta Megarry

The Wicklow Way is Ireland's first and most popular Waymarked Way, running between Marlay Park (Dublin) and Clonegal, 82 miles (132 km) to the south. It offers varied and scenic walking on the flanks of the rugged Wicklow mountains with loughs and waterfalls, passing historic buildings and hospitable villages. Much of the route lies over 1600 feet (500 metres) giving glorious views. Lower sections run through forests and farmland, over a mixture of tracks, roads and pathways rich in wildlife.

This edition is based on a research trip made in Spring 2008, revised in 2011 and again in 2015 and 2017. It has many route updates, extra photographs and it explains new options for accommodation. We expect to have stock in August 2017 and meantime you can pre-order at the old price of £10.99 if you wish. It contains all you need to plan and enjoy your holiday on the Wicklow Way:

  • detailed route description, updated in 2017, with distance, terrain and food and drink
  • the secrets of how to book accommodation to avoid walking extra distances
  • concise background on history, geology and wildlife
  • extended 6-page feature on the monastic city of Glendalough
  • planning information for travel by car, train, bus or plane
  • in full colour, with 80 photographs.
  • drop-down map of the Wicklow Way in five panels (1:100,000)
  • on waterproof paper throughout.
