The Wicklow Way

The Wicklow Way is 131km long and crosses the Wicklow Mountains from Marley Park in Dublin, to Clonegal in County Carlow.

Our family farm at Cronybyrne is within a 20 minute drive or less of many of the main highlights making your glamping caravan the perfect base from which to explore the wonders of the Wicklow Way. The trail is made up of a patchwork of many different landscapes including mountains, upland lakes, steep-sided glacial valleys, fast flowing mountain streams, forests and farmland. It is beautiful, refreshing and a good mix of relaxing, gentle and strenuous.

Highlights of this wonderfully varied walk include Powerscourt Waterfall, Lough Tay (known as the Guinness Lake) and the glacial valleys of Glenmalure and Glendalough.  The Wicklow Way is generally divided in seven stages and there are a variety of accommodation providers along the way. Wicklow Tourism has developed a series of maps that can be easily downloaded and printed to help you along the journey.

So whether you plan a week long trek in the countryside or you choose to explore the Wicklow Way in stages, a satisfying experience lies ahead, putting you in closer touch with Wicklow’s natural beauty than any driving or coach tour ever could.

  • Glamping top tip

    Whether hiking or driving, make sure not to miss the spectacular beauty of Lough Tay, known as the Guinness Lake because of its unique shape, dark coloured water and white sandy beach. The best viewing point to see Lough Tay is along the Military Road above, at the junction with the Wicklow Way.
