Just why anyone would feel the need to walk away from our beautiful town is beyond us, but, then again, if you’re going to walk, you might as well walk The Greystones Way.
Taking you from Greystones train station all the way up to the beginning of The Sugar Loaf Way in Kilmacanogue, this fine idea has just gotten its official launch.
And it gets the GG Seal Of Approval too. Which is really all that matters.
Thanking his missus, Carol, for coming up with the original route idea, speaking at the Pig’s Hollow launch, Cllr Derek Mitchell also gave a shout-out to his fellow Greystones Municipal District councillors (especially given that they all agreed on allocating the tourism budget for the last two years), as well as Greystones Tidy Towns, Geoff Seymour and the Wicklow Uplands for advice, Coillte, for being Coillte, and district engineer Ruairi O’Hanlon and his merry men for implementing the plan.
Here’s young Mitchell with a lowdown on the route…
An 8km trail walk from Greystones train station, Whitshed Road through the Edwardian Burnaby, past ancient Kindlestown Castle, Kindlestown Heights, Bellvue Hill, Kindlestown Woods, Ballydonagh with lovely mountain views, Glenview N11 overbridge, Quill Road to Kilmacanogue.
There it meets the Sugar Loaf Way (yellow arrows) around the west side of the mountain. Marked by white arrows on black marker posts in rural areas and attractive finger signs in urban areas. It is well served by public transport too – Greystones DART, Dublin Bus Numbers 184, 84 Glenview 184 bus, Kilmacanogue 45a, and Bus Eireann number 133.
