would call it more moderate-hard due to several difficult stone sections with difficult footing.

views from the top and even on the way up are very good in good weather

Wonderfull views & the winds felt amazing. Short but intense a great way to get warmed up for the other Wicklow Trails.

My favourite walk, anywhere.

This walk is 90% on roads. The scenery in the area is beautiful but if you want a nice woodland or off road walk this is not for you

very good quiet area

Break away to the north from the 500m mark and make your way along the cliff top. Cross the river that feeds Lough Tay at 300m (for an especially beautiful river crossing) and make a B line to the peak at Djouce (for a singular view of Wicklow and Dublin). Then follow the boardwalk (sleepers) back to the car park. A long walk but beautiful. Maybe 6 hours all in all with breaks. Tired legs.

Unquestionably my favourite trail in Dublin. Rain or shine, summer or winter. However, best in summer when Deer park forest is in full blossom. Also a great trail to pick magic mushrooms in October. Not a hard trail, no need to dress like an astronaut! Wonderful cliff jumps into the sea near the Bailey lighthouse and great cliff fishing spots as you get close to Howth village. Suitable to run, not cycle.

We did nice family walk. On half way and we have been stop by one very rude ranger. Walking with river is not allowed. This all is private property. the only paths are the black one on map. do not use thos trail if you dont want to have problems!

I love this walk and do it as often as possible.

Great hike! My boyfriend and I did the entire thing in about 3.5 hours. We went up the chute and down the switchbacks considering it was very stormy throughout the entire hike. If you are a strong hiker you won't need poles and it is a very laid back approach and you will want your hands for the chute. For the chute, we didn't encounter anything that appeared treacherous though I can see people getting in trouble if they aren't wearing enough layers as it got really cold especially as we approached the top. A good rain jacket, rain pants, and gloves are what I would recommend above everything else.

Amazing hike. I did this hike with my boyfriend, both of us are quite serious outdoorsy people and love Ireland (he's from IE) so this was a great trip for the two of us. Whole thing took about 4 hours, we went during a hurricane last October, it was stormy but dry on ascent, just before summit it started pouring and didn't stop for the duration. Be prepared to scramble, climb and get soaked.

Rain wear, hiking boots and hiking poles are advised.

A really nice hike that is mixed between Road & Track. As a family we have done this dozens of times. Plenty of rest/picnic areas. Now it’s tough in parts but all in all a nice few hours out. Beautiful scenery of Dingle, Rossbeigh, Glenbeigh & Glencar. Aged 6plus for tired legs. Not a busy route either! Enjoy this

This is simply a MUST DO for anybody in Kerry that’s looking for a beautiful walk in the most amazing scenery. The horses, walkers, runners & busy route just make this hike/walk better. It’s an all tarmac walk so good runners & water is all one needs. Enjoy

Amazing views from the top. Steady upwards drag with a bit of a “hike” at the very last part. So uncrowded it’s hard to believe.

It’s a nice easy hike that is beautiful & easy on the foot. Not a very busy route at all, which makes it even better. The views are unreal at the top!

rain was forecasted for early morning so I decided to leave at 1. headed off through the woods, the road splits with signposts both way, I swung back to the right and continued until I met the open scrub land. crossed over the fence and headed off up the spur of Slieve. tough ascent, most of the elevation gained is getting up here. stopped 3/4 times to catch my breath and kicked on again. I tried to keep to the left side of this spur so I would get some shelter from the winds coming in from the west. you should see a cairn near the top. crush will be directly to you're left at this point. continue along and you'll catch a path which after a few hundred metres you'll see a wall to your right. great place to get some shelter if needed for a few minutes. once you get along this wall it's a gentle pull up compared to what you've come from. be careful not to go to far to the left there is a nice drop down to the lake curragh. once up the top I had a quick coffee and a little stop for a few snaps. met two guys up there who had travelled from the opposite direction, since the weather was good I pushed on to galtybeg. if the weather was bad I would defo head back down the way I came. after descending down galtybeg and veering off to the left before cush towards the forest. I had to cross one or two little streams before I met a little steps over a fence back into the forest. to backtrack a little, after descending galtybeg I would be warn ppl to be very careful, I thought it was very difficult. it made me glad I choose my initial route and if I was to it again I would go up and come back the way I came, i just feel that a simple slip and you could do a ankle EASY!! I slipped on my bum and I slid at least 10 feet and the mountain was very dry today. it would be a nightmare to try come down when the weather closes in or if it rain. good hike on the whole with of course great views of Tipp cork waterford and limerick. back to the car at clydagh bridge by 5.30. 2 up and 2 and half back but that's taking in a traverse over to galtybeg!

good

Beautiful views of waterfall and wildlife.

Great walk. Worth it for the view. Amazing vista of Killarney and the lakes from the top. Very doable. Take your time. it will pay off at the top.

Magic trail...

The difficulty of this trail lies in the physical effort required for the initial ascend from the valley. No climbing or other technical difficulties and the trail, while almost unmarked is very obviously visible so orientation is no problem. Sadly, both times I used this route the peak was covered in cloud so no great views available.

Fabulous view.
