It isn't really a trail - it was a walk down an asphalt road with no sidewalk or shoulder. Speed limit is 50 mph on parts and 35 on some. It wasnt that safe considering the road is a typical Ireland road where 2 cars can barely pass each other. There is one part off the road where you walk a trail through a meadow to a castle and that part was pretty.
Oh and there is no loop. It is in and back unless you walk through private property.

Awesome, steep, great views from the get go!

Loved this hike, hard for some like me but not difficult. Defo want to do it again.

excellent hike. stunning views. clear enough paths to follow, but can be steep at parts. would suggest some / good level of fitness. So worth it.

Loved the hike! The scrambling up the rocks are not too extreme although you should be in decent shape/athletic. The day started off clear with blue skies and it was beautiful. At the peak the clouds had rolled in. We hiked up the scramble rocks, made it to the peak, and on the decent we walked down a little ways, walked along the ridge (pretty narrow) and down the switchback. I recommend this as your plan. Great beautiful hike!!

amazing trail but if you are an outdoor enthousiast prepare to, stop and queue a lot and be constantly surrendered by tourists.

I would recommand doing it in low season and on week days.

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

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.

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.

Beautiful views of waterfall and wildlife.

went from carlingford to long woman's grave. walked up over sleive foye. great views of the bay and the Mourne mountains. trekked over to long woman's grave. bit of a climb in places. very boggy but best of views

beautiful park, lovely walk.

Fabulous view.

This is not a moderate trail. The hiking is intense with probably 1 to 2 miles of flat terrain. Pack plenty of water for the 5 hour trek and wear good hiking boots. A couple of sandwiches and etc. is also a good idea. The payoff is breathtaking vistas of emerald pastures and blue lakes. . Also enjoyed mingling with the cows and horses along the way. Beware of electric fences on the first part of the hike. And if one enjoys blackberries, there wee an abundance along the route. I give this a thumbs up and 5 Stars.

A wonderful climb in a beautiful place. The walk was not overly strenuous. It was only the last part that was steeper and the wind picked up so made it a bit .ore difficult. Still it was all so worth it! The views were spectacular as disability was great. The descent was not at all difficult as the ground was nice and dry. Look forward to doing it again in the future!

Amazing views...

Probably the most organized and well thought trail system I’ve ever been on! Their is a manned information booth which provide maps of selected hikes. The trail is well marked. And you finish directly across the street from the DART train station. Plenty of excellent seafood restaurants there. Doesn’t get any better than this!
