Breathtaking view but ground is very boggy.

Well marked trails for shorter and longer routes. A steep hike can be done from car park to straight up to the top as well.

Tough hike with fab view. Top can be extremely windy with no shelter to hide.
Alltrails app is very useful not to mistake sheep tracks with hiking path.

Maybe the most breathtaking hike I did in Ireland. The views from the top are amazing, highly recommended.

Very easy but absolutely stunning! We go down via the sand dunes now and a handy walk back.

hidden gem for experienced hikers. we did a loop instead of turning back the same way. went to the top as shown in the map and them continued and descended towards Delphi resort. parts of the path are not signaled and trek is not obvious. stunning views from the top!

Very scenic. Good hike for novice hikers. Remember that scene in Half Blood Prince where Dumbledore takes Harry to that cave to find a horcrux? Copy paste.

Beautiful views of the Irish coast. Fairly well marked trail posts, but the trail is difficult to identify occasionally between posts (given the short distance of the hike, not really an issue). Recommend starting the trail just before the entrance to the parking lot. Bring a light coat - it’s windy!

Absolutely beautiful waterfall! It was a quick and easy walk from the parking lot.

A fabulous hike with great views over the lake and all the way to the sea. Some parts need hand and foot and you get close to some sheer drops but it makes for fabulous pictures and views. And you can finish the hike nicely down at the lake and dip your feet in. A spectacular loop walk well worth the effort!

Great hike. Follow the route start Left, finish Right. The wind can be blowing so dress appropriately.

Nice trail, watch out for the scrambler bikes as there were lots of them.

A beautiful walk along side the river robe. It is an easy trail with a very good surface. Safe and away from traffic and noise. Lovely on a nice day

Very easy but pleasing the the eyes

Beautiful and easy hike The structures were really nice. We started by heading to the left first up the steeper hill. Then followed the trail down to the next towers and bridge. Beautiful little waterfall and a picnic table. Can be done in about 30 minutes but we spent over an hour there. Perfect for families or to bring a dog

Part of larger Arra Loop walk, this trail starts just off the road on the way up to The Graves of the Lienstermen. Free parking is available at Graves of the Lienstermen viewing point. Trail provides views out over Lough Derg.

Beautiful hike over well maintained trail system.

Rewarding views, an easy hour walk. Would highly recommend.

Just flat out stunning! We hiked this trail in March, but caught a hint of wild flowers. Stark beauty every direction.

Less than hour away from dublin, so much worth going. Beautiful views, well marked path. Really relaxing!

Great views from the top in all directions

Not 5 stars just because there is a substantial part of the walk on asphalt. Totally worth it, breathtaking views.

Very short but nice park

on Diamond Hill Loop

Beautiful hike with breathtaking views. Traffic on the trails in July and August but worth it.

Short but very steep walk affording fantastic 360° panoramic views of South Dublin and Wicklow. On a clear day you can see the mountains in Wales across the sea and the Mourne mountains to the north.

NB the last part of the climb towards the peak of the Sugarloaf is very rough and rocky underfoot, and not suitable for anyone unfit or with mobility issues.

Popular with kids.

I thoroughly enjoyed this trail. It takes you through many different styles of Irish terrain and allows amazing views of both the vast valley's and blue ocean. There are no trail markers and no clearly defined paths at the beginning of the trail. Just line yourself up with the mountain peak and make your own way up. For the first 30 minutes or so, you're stepping around through marshes and trying not sink your boot into muck. I would definitely recommend high topped and waterproof boots if you don't have a nice set of gaiters. Don't let this messy start deter you from doing the hike. Every second is worth it. It's a short hike, but a steep incline, so be ready to take some breaks. With breathtaking views at every turn, I'm sure you'll find excuses to stop and take a look around. Cheers!
