The Oldest Way-marked Trail

Ireland’s oldest marked trail, the Wicklow Way, was pioneered over forty years ago by J.B. Malone, a famous Irish hill climber, who spent years promoting the thrills of hiking and climbing in Ireland.

The Way affords some of Ireland’s finest sights, including the Powerscourt Waterfall, Luggala, Loch Dan, Glenmalure, and the ancient historical site of Glendalough. The Way extends from Marlay Park in Dublin to Clonegal on the borders of Wicklow and Carlow Counties and covers a distance of 79 miles (127 kilometers).
