Hiking Trails in Ireland

With its rolling hills, wind ravaged grasslands and ragged coastlines; Ireland’s unique brand of rugged beauty lends itself to a variety of hiking opportunities. Walking trails seemingly traverse every inch of the country, but here are six of the best routes to get you started.

1) The Wicklow Way

A mere hour from Dublin, this famed trail, dating back to 1980, runs through the Wicklow Mountains National Park, tackling the steep terrain of the Glenmalure and Glendalough valleys, forested enclaves, deserted mines and ancient abbeys. An 8-10 day hike takes in the full route, or else there are plenty of options for day hikes.
