A private transfer takes you to beautiful Lough Tay, a true sight to behold and one of the highlights on the Wicklow Way. 

Set off on your hike today with energy. You will have had a delicious and sustaining breakfast and magnificent panoramas surround you to entice you on. A gradual incline brings you across the exposed shoulder of Djouce Mountain, and then after your descent, you can sit on the memorial seat from which to view the Powerscourt Waterfall, which at 120m is Ireland’s highest.

Then walk the last stretch back to your accommodation where, if you wish, you may unwind and relax your tired muscles in the hotel spa.

Lough Tay was created in the Ice Age, surrounded by mountains and is one of the most photographed and iconic spots in Ireland. Where you begin your walk you can find fantastic views over the lake, so pause a while and take some memorable shots!

Sicherheitshinweise

The terrain consists mainly of forest tracks and mountain paths (partly on boardwalks). Make sure to be fully equipped with rainwear, plenty of layers, water, food, and strong footwear as you will be more exposed to the weather. Parts can be wet and boggy underfoot, as well as exposed in places. Take extra care in wet conditions. Please check the forecast before setting off for the day and remember that strong winds and/or rain on rough terrain can slow you down. Read more about recommended gear under equipment.

Sights

- Lough Tay Viewpoint

Before setting off for your walk, you should visit this iconic viewpoint of Lough Tay. One of the most photographed locations in Wicklow, famed for its stunning scenery of the lake surrounded by mountains. Also known as the "Guinness lake" as the shape of the lake with the white sands at the top makes it look like a pint of Guinness! 

- J. B. Malone Memorial 

B. Malone was a long distance walking officer who set up the route from Dublin to a little village in Clonegal, which is known today as the Wicklow Way. He received a lot of recognition of the work he did getting young people in the outdoors. 

- Djouce Mountain

At a height of 725m above sea level, you can enjoy views of the summit of Djouce Mountain from the trail.

Ausrüstung

We recommend taking a good waterproof jacket and trousers with you, plus a hat and gloves as the weather can be changeable at any time of the year. There are some more exposed landscapes on this day too, so make sure you dress in (breathable) layers so you do not get cold. A waterproof cover for your rucksack is also useful.

We also recommend wearing gaiters to protect your legs and to stop mud and water getting into your boots if you have to cross boggy sections, or if it is a wet day. 

Other essential items are water, enough food and snacks to last between supply points, blister treatment and first aid kit, insect repellant, biodegradable toilet tissue, and a whistle and torch.
