Being right on the seafront patio of The Garden of Ireland means we lucky, lucky Greystonians can, within fifteen minutes of the town centre, be Deliverance deep in Wicklow countryside.
And the beauty of it is, there’s just so much to choose from.
Which is why we’ve decided to try and pull together in one handy guide all the many nature trails, cliff walks, hill climbs, waterfalls, sandy beaches and ancient paths around here.
Naturally, during the Covid-19 lockdown, these walks are going to have to be virtual. Lots of pics and videos to trek through on the links…
Even as we look at the list above, we know full well that there are far, far morehidden gems and world famous beauty spots to be charted still, and we’ll hopefully get around to just about all of them before these boots are no longer fit for walkin’.
For now, we’ve broken the walks down into areas, so you can check out your options where’er you should go. And join the beauty spots for those long, long walks.
Oh, and whilst you’re up in that neck of Scott’s Wood, you might want to venture further uphill, to those iconicDrummin Trees. Also up on Blackberry Lane, you’ll find the remaining one oftwo 350-year-old cottages that once faced one another, Hill’s old home bulldozed back in August 2010, the Byrne’s old home just about still standing, as the battle to save it from the same fate continues.
And since you’re venturing beyond the town border, the newly-opened Belmont Demesne has everything, from free walking trails and fat bike hire to a grand nosh-up available at Bak’d At Arthur’s Barn. Nice.
