Wicklow Walking Festival

October 25

October Bank Holiday Weekend

Friday 22nd October – Monday 25th October 2021

Please register online and we will send you a STRIPE invoice two weeks before the festival to make it easy for you to pay for your chosen walk/walks online.

Co. Wicklow ‘The Garden of Ireland’, is renowned worldwide for its scenic beauty, offering a variety of walking challenges – from woodlands and rolling hills to wild craggy mountain climbs. The county lies just south of Dublin on the East Coast of Ireland. It is home to the largest area of unbroken high raised ground in Ireland, covering almost the same area as that of Mont Blanc, approximately 50 km long by 40 km wide.

Festival Outline

The Festival will be based in the Brockagh Resource Centre with many of the walks taking us through Wicklow Mountains National Park. The Centre is situated in the heart of the Wicklow Mountains, on the road between the village of Laragh and Glendalough. Eircode, A98 D3H1

All walks are led by experienced walking leaders who will enhance your day with information on local history flora and fauna.

The National Park is an ideal location for a fun-filled festival weekend covering approximately 90,000 hectares! The park protects some of Europe’s oldest peat boglands, heather-covered mountains, and woodlands. Large herds of sika and red/sika hybrid deer, foxes, badgers, hares and birds of prey are frequently spotted on walks so don’t forget your camera!

The weekend offers a selection of walking choices which you can mix, match, or just choose one:

  • Climb Leinster’s highest peak, Lugnaquilla (925 m).
  • A night walk on Friday the 22nd  promising to be a unique and adventurous experience.
  • A selection of day walks from challenging, moderate and easy on Saturday and Sunday.
  • A moderate walk on Monday the 25th to celebrate the completion of a great weekend and summer walking season.
