The MOST popular hiking trail in Ireland.

South of Dublin and west of Bray, the Wicklow Way tracks the ridgeline of the rugged Wicklow Mountains. These rolling hills are semi-forested with miles of windswept and rocky moorland hiking. A good base for exploration is the small rural village of Enniskerry, 13 miles south of Dublin and 3 miles west of Bray. The Wicklow Mountains are just west of town. Another good trail is hidden from view just behind the Powercourt Waterfall.
