Another great day walking The Wicklow Way today over mountain tops and along forest tracks. With the city of Dublin beginning to come into view your destination is within reach. When you arrive at the Cairn (a man-made pile or stack of stones at the top of a mountain) at
Two Rock, you can see the whole of Dublin City and Bay in one impressive panoramic vista.
From this point, it will be all downhill until you reach the beautiful Georgian estate of Marlay Park where The Wicklow Way finishes. Originally Marlay Park was a walled manor house with over 300 acres of land. It is an idyllic location for a tea or coffee before making your way into Dublin city centre. There are frequent buses to bring you into Dublin city centre from here where you will stay tonight.
Consider adding an extra night accommodation if you wish to spend some time exploring the historic city of Dublin. Sample a pint after a tour of the Guinness Store House, view the magnificent book of Kells in Trinity College, be magically transported back in time when you visit the National Museum of Ireland or simply relax strolling Saint Stephens Green. There is always going on in Dublin: theatre, festivals, markets, concerts… we recommend you spend a couple of days to discover this bustling and lively city.
