From Bray to Glendalough Walk/Run: June 2018 Press Trip

Walk / Run from Bray to Glendalough:  Three Days in Wicklow!

For our June 2018 Press Trip, with the support of Fáilte Ireland & Tourism Ireland we invited Outdoors journalists from Southern Europe to experience some of Wicklow’s best trails.  Ultra runner Pablo Criado and Photographer Quim Farrero represented Spain and Trail Magazine, while Francesco Di Domenico from Soul Running represented Italy.

Day 1:  Bray & Killruddery House

All three arrived at Dublin Airport and took the Aircoach bus to Bray.  and they dropped their bags at The Martello on the seafront where they were to spend the night.  After a twenty minutes walk, we were given a quick tour of Killruddery House.

Day 2:  Run/Walk from Bray to Lough Tay

The objective of the day is to walk/run from Bray Seafront all the way to Lough Tay going through Bray Head, the Sugar Loaf and Djouce mountain:  some 25km of stunning sceneries.   René from the Glendalough Athletics Club was our guide for the day.  We left our bags to Wicklow Way Baggage to be delivered at our accommodation in Glendalough.

From Lough Tay we went for lunch at the Sugarloaf Café and transferred to Glendalough for the night.

Day 3:  Glendalough and Back to Dublin

Today we stayed in Glendalough and walked the Spinc overlooking the Upper Lake and a visit of the visitor centre.  Late afternoon we made our way back to Dublin for the night before flying home the following day.
