Super fun, beautiful views, red deer, and cultural sites.

Completed on Sept. 13 2017. Wonderful hike! My sister and I have hiked in lots of locations around the world, we both agreed that this one was incredibly unique. Views of ruins, lakes, wildlife including sheep, deer and goats. Do the hike counterclockwise around lake. Makes summiting the mountain much more enjoyable!

We went counter clockwise around the lake and were glad we did. Amazing views of the lakes in the valley! It was dry at the bottom but walking along the ridge at the top it rained a lot. It is Ireland afterall, so we were prepared with rain gear and still had a great hike.

My wife and I went to Ireland just for this trail. We were able to complete it in 7 days, staying at B&Bs each night along the way. We took the path from South to North, however, starting our trek in Clonegal and ending at Marlay Park in Dublin. I am glad we took this direction, as it made the trail get more interesting the farther we got in. The southern section of the trail is mostly farm land with trails through pine woods. There are quite a few stretches where we were walking on roads with cars periodically whizzing past us. In my opinion, this was the best way to experience a new country; walking through it. The countryside is gorgeous, as are the wooded areas. We did not see too many other walkers until we got near Glendalough, so that was nice as well. I do think I assumed it was going to be easier than it was. Some of the uphill stretches are much more steep than some of the mountain hikes near Los Angeles. Also, we carried all of our items in our packs, and if I could do it over again, I would have brought less clothing. I would have brought maybe 2 outfits of athletic materials that I could wash in the sink and dry overnight. My pack was about 30lb, and after 12-13 miles each day, it got pretty cumbersome.

Amazing
