Easy to get to from Dublin. I took the DART from Connolly Station, about 30-35 minutes, and 6.15 Euro for a return. Not a bad deal. After enjoying the piers, walk to the end of the shops away from the station and follow the road uphill. You will eventually come to the start of the trail. You are in for spectacular views from the cliffs for about the next 2-3 miles. There is a treacherous path of old steps down to a secret beach close to the 5 mile point, but I'll say no more - It wouldn't be a secret then, would it? Just keep your eyes open for offshoot paths.

From the halfway point, the views are fewer as you move into the greenery, but lots of delicious wild blackberries to snack on as a consolation prize. When you turn inland, you should be keen to enjoy the woods, and crossing a road and a golf course. Past the golf course, the trail starts to get well worn again, and you're on the home stretch, through the neighborhoods of the village and down to the bus stop right across from the DART station.

Great hike, if a little boring at the end, but you could easily go the other way, and get the boring stuff over right away.

Slainte!
