A most original walking holiday in the Wicklow Mountains – together with your donkey companion discover the incredibly beautiful landscape of “The Garden of Ireland”.

Your first and last evenings will be spent in the village of Rathdrum, overnighting at Jacob’s Well Guesthouse in the centre of the village, while your donkey rests at our farm. Before heading off we will give you lots of instruction and time to get to know your donkey. We will also supply you with maps, a detailed itinerary and abundant information on local history and culture.

Your gentle, well-trained donkey companion will escort you to the famous “Meetings of the Waters” and the village of Avoca, overnighting for two nights at Ashton House, charmingly situated on the banks where the Avonmore and Avonbeg rivers meet. There’s time to explore the countryside around Avoca, the Motte Stone and the Avoca Mines.

Then you continue to Ballinaclash and the glacial valley of Glenmalure at the foot of Lugnaquilla Mountain and Croghanmoira, overnighting at the Glenmalure Lodge Hotel. A trek across The Military Road in the shadow of Mullacor will bring you to the village of Laragh and the Monastic City of Glendalough, founded by St. Kevin in the 6th century. Two nights at the famous landmark Lynham’s Hotel will give you plenty of time to follow the pilgrim’s trail to Glendalough, enjoy a drive in a horse drawn carriage and walk in the mountains.

Grassy fields and fresh streams will keep your intrepid donkey companion happy. Heading home, passing Trooperstown hill you will have wonderful views of the Vale of Clara and the countryside around Ballard and Ballylug before winding downhill back to our farm at Cronybyrne together with your donkey walking companion.
