Yesterday afternoon my lovely friend Rachael and I drove down to Glendalough in Wicklow, which is about 35 minutes from Dublin. It was a lovely Day so we put on our gym gear and decide to go for a walk holding onto the last bit of sunshine before Autumn comes in.
It was what we both needed. It's nice to get out of the city and into the countryside. It's what I love about Ireland that only 45 minutes out of the city is this beautiful countryside. We plan to go back and do the "Wicklow Way" on Saturday as I was rushing back for 7. It's a 4 and a half hour Hike (13km), but the views are supposed to be worth it! If you're ever visiting Dublin for a few days I would 100% recommend visiting Glendalough if the days is nice and dry! It's gorgeous and Buses leave from the City Centre a couple of times a day if I remember correctly. They have a number of different trails ranging from a short 1KM to the Wicklow Way and all different levels so there's something for everyone. There's a lovely Hotel as well as a Hostel down there so if you're knackered after hiking you can crash there after a good feed. In the heart of Glendalough is also an old Monastery which is so interesting. We both rambled around for a little bit. It's a really lovely afternoon, one that we will definitely do again!
