The Wicklow Way is Ireland’s first and most popular Waymarked Way, running between Marlay Park (Dublin) and Clonegal, 81 miles (130 km) to the south-west. It offers varied and scenic walking on the flanks of the rugged Wicklow mountains with loughs and waterfalls, passing historic buildings and hospitable villages. Much of the route lies over 1600 feet (500 metres) giving glorious views. Lower sections run through forests and farmland, over a mixture of tracks, roads and pathways rich in wildlife.

Our third edition was released after the author rewalked the route in August 2019. It has many route updates, some never published before, 95 colour photographs and 13 pages of detailed mapping at 1:35,000. Despite having more pages (72 pp), it is lighter and more rainproof than ever.

This guidebook contains all you need to plan and enjoy the Wicklow Way:

detailed route description, updated in 2019, with distance, terrain and food and drink
the secrets of how to book accommodation to avoid walking extra distances
concise background on history, geology and wildlife

planning information for travel by car, train, bus or plane
in full colour, with 95 colour photos.
