Wicklow County Tourism has recently made available an extensive online resource section on visitwicklow.ie, dedicated to help users plan and enjoy the Wicklow Way.

Information also includes many points of interests, exit locations, mobile phone coverage, and much more.
The section can be accessed at http://visitwicklow.ie/the-wicklow-way/
“We are delighted with the information provided and our Wicklow Way online section is already proving popular with users” says Fred Verdier, manager with Wicklow County Tourism. “We recently organised a press trip along the southern part of the Wicklow Way, and the information available proved very useful not only when planning the walk, but as well during the walk using our mobile phones for maps and local info.”
The extensive data was gathered by Adventure.ie, a company based in Laragh, with many years of experience in outdoor activities in the Wicklow Mountains.
“It took us several months to gather the information, meeting and chatting with end users and other stakeholders, and journeying along the Wicklow Way during peak and off peak season, ” says Cindy Doyle from Adventure.ie who oversaw the project development. “We put ourselves in the shoes of walking visitors and understanding their needs, we feel we have provided Wicklow Tourism with the most relevant information to them”
“Although tremendous work has been done do get the information available, this is still very much work in progress” adds Fred Verdier. “Having the information online means that we can update or enhance any data at any time: we very much welcome users to send any feedback.
