The Wicklow Way

Walking the Wicklow Way

The Wicklow Way is part of a network of long-distance self-guided walking trails, (also called 'way-marked ways'), throughout Ireland. The Wicklow Way combines easy accessibility with a wide variety of scenic experiences, some of them in truly remote upland areas. They include mountains, upland lakes, steep-sided glacial valleys, fast flowing mountain streams, forests and farmland. The Wicklow Way route is now the most westerly section of the E8 footpath which extends across much of Europe.
The Wicklow Way begins in Dublin's southern suburb of Rathfarnham and travels in a south-south-westerly direction across the Dublin and Wicklow uplands, then through the rolling hill country of southwest County Wicklow to finish in the small, County Carlow village of Clonegal 127 kilometres later.

For the experienced walker, one can explore the adjacent mountains of Lugnaquilla, Croghan and Cushbawn to name a few. The renowned Wicklow Way walk also passes just 5km from Macreddin Rock at the well known “Iron Bridge” landmark.

To enjoy more gentle rambles we are located just 10 minutes from Avondale House and Gardens, 20 minutes from the famous monastic settlement, Glendalough, while the Sean Linehan Walk in Aughrim and the Ciarán Shannon Walk in Annacurra are close by and meander through mature woodland.

Margaret & Michael will collect or drop-off walkers to designated points.




Macreddin Rock Bed & Breakfast is a prime location from which to play a number of well known golf courses. In fact it is situated within the midst of the spectacular Paul McGinley-designed Macreddin Golf Course and within half an hour you can also tee off in Woodenbridge, Arklow, Coollattin or Glenmalure.



In nearby Aughrim, there is the award winning National Disabled Angling Facility, a park, which, is wheelchair accessible and open to the general public.
