Glendalough was another favourite place for a day out. The peace & serenity there is amazing. We were warned about bottomless lakes but glacial waters we never ventured into. St Kevin's Bed (How he slept on rock, we couldn't figure.

Kelly McGarvey we did all but one! Yay for my 90s memories!

Dee Handrick Schier - look at this!! Cliff walk shortlisted in Independent Travel Awards!!

Noting in the west of the county

Memories of heading across Wicklow Mts to Brittas Bay for a big day out as children! The seaside & lots lots more.. playing in the dunes, bringing our own water to make tea. The joys of it❤️

Beautiful photos

In October we did the Spinc walk in Glendalough, great and very lucky it was a beautiful day. Also did the Bray to Greystones walk even though the entrance was blocked due to rocks falling, didn't see any damage or falling rocks, a nice easy walk on a cold and windy day.

Rathdrum & Bray to Greystones Walk were later ventures. Warm memory of climbing Sugar Loaf with best friends while @ school in Dub Laoghaire!
