Wicklow Way Day 7 Roundwood to Enniskerry

Jul 25, 2011 by

In the morning we enjoyed our breakfast in the conservatory where we were joined by a geologist. He explained the work which was being done to help protect the soil from walkers, evidence of which we had already seen. Catherine dropped us back at the trail and we carried on our route.

We were soon climbing up above Varty Reservoir which serves Dublin and seeing some great views. We met quite a few walkers today, as this part of the route is in easy reach of Dublin.These mountains are beautiful and we had out first glimpse of the coast. We didn’t take much persuading to take a short diversion to climb Djouse and got amazing views of Sugarloaf and the surrounding area.

Mary from Brook Cottage came and picked us up from the road near the youth hostel at Enniskerry and took us to their lovely home. I was very impressed with how easily Sadie, the three legged greyhound tackled the steep stairs! Mary and Jeff moved from the United States to run the Bed and Breakfast and it is very popular. Jeff gave six of us a lift to the village for supper and back and we ate at the Bistro. One pub is being renovated but there were at least two other choices so there was something for everyone.
