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.
