Hiking in Wicklow

Hiking in Wicklow

Wicklow is blessed with some of Ireland’s most scenic landscape and unspoilt countryside and when glamping on our farm there is no better way to explore the area and recharge the batteries than a good walk in the fresh air!

Whether you want a family stroll or a challenging hike there is a great variety of marked walks to suit all types of walkers. From the wild uplands with wide open vistas, quiet forest paths, seaside cliff walks and sandy beaches, narrow winding mountain roads and nature reserve walking trails, it is all on the doorstep of your glamping caravan.

Directly neighbouring our farm is Clara Vale Nature Reserve which offers 3 signposted loop walks through mature oak woods following the Avonmore River. Similar easy going walks within a 10 minute drive from your glamping caravan include Kilmacurragh Arboretum or or Avondale House & Forest Park, a 500 acre mature woodland and stately home with walking trails from an easy 1 hour walk to a tough 5 hour walk.

Alternatively, explore your artistic side with a walk at The Devils Glen Wood with its Sculpture in the Woodland walking trail, home to 20 wooden sculptures by Irish & international artists.

The Avonmore Way offers a great connection from our glamping site to either Rathdrum or to Glendalough and the Wicklow Way and can be joined at the mid-way point next door in Clara Vale.

For those who love to be by the sea, a walk along Brittas Bay is a must or just 30 minutes from the farm you can explore the 7km long Bray Greystones Cliff Walk. This walking route is easy, taking you past cliffs, seabird colonies and hidden coves before hitting the gradual incline to Greystones’ Victorian seafront. Recharge with a visit to The Happy Pear, an excellent vegetarian café and food market in the centre of Greystones.
