Very nice hike until the road part starts at the end, which is about 2-3 miles, no sidewalks and fair amount of car traffic. Ruined the entire hike imho

Tough running route, 5-20km. Plenty of steep and gradual inclines on different terrains with different views at every turn.

Easy walk nothing moderate about it. Great views at the top with plenty of area for exploring and a picnic if ya like. Timbertrove close by does a savage tea and scone after.

Agree with all the remarks about there being too many roads without sidewalks... otherwise the trails themselves are great

This should be rated as ‘easy’ as i don’t think it’s a moderate hike. It’s more of a walk than a hike and it’s ideal for a family with small kids as a day out. Did it yesterday bt was disappointed with the level of ‘moderate’ so headed off to the sugarloaf for a bit of a hike!

Really great trail with amazing views. Ran into some deer crossing the trail in the mountains as well. The recommended detours are also very worth it. Be careful on the last stretch of road (Tibradden road) however. Cars tend to speed more than they should and there are many turns with very bad visibility.

The city views are nice in the first hour but the best part is after the traffic noise from the m50 subsides. I was actually shocked how audible it was and for how far. I would also add a word of caution for the very last stretch is on a main road with no foot path. I found that very stressful especially with a dog in tow. When you’re in the middle though it is spectacular. I would do it again, maybe figure out a different way of getting back. I did it in five hours including two stops for a cuppa! one of which was in a lovely cafe just before the precarious bit of road.

An easy trail, good for trail runners. You can see most of the city on a sunny day. It's very easy to get to from the city. Timbertrove càfe is lovely for a nice coffee or lunch after your hike.

Very close to Dublin city. If you’re looking for a short walk close do Dublin, this place is perfect.

Awesome hike! Perfect to see the many different aspect of Ireland's natural habitat. You'll start out going through a paved/gravel path through the mossy woods that takes you around to a mountain side trail with great views of the ocean/city. Don't forget to stop off at some of the burial sites along the way, especially the Ballyedmonduff Wedge Tomb. In order to get there you need to go off the loop trail and down the mountain a ways, but it's worth it when you get there. Lastly, when you get to the Fairy Castle peak, even the most skeptical of hikers would be satisfied. Following this rolling green mountain ridge is everything that people want to see in an Ireland hike. We got lucky while up there and had some fog roll in creating a really awesome and eerie environment. The hike took us about 6 hours, but could be done in 4-5 if you're an experienced hiker. We usually like to keep it casual and take in the views. Be sure to finish the hike before sundown. The last portion is on a really tight and windy road that's not well catered to hikers. Safety first! Cheers!
