Thanks so much for your kind words. It was lovely to meet you both and share with you some of the beauty off the hills around Wicklow.

If you're new to hill walking or a seasoned veteran there are plenty of day hikes to do with Mountain trails. Great guides with tonnes of local and nature knowledge.
