Re: Wild Camping
GM's Question Re; Wild Camping

Hi gm. It is difficult to recommend anywhere to camp between Lough Tay and Lough Dan as I believe the residents of that valley are quite protective of their domain. They are fierce about dogs etc. Having said that, I have seen the remains of camping and campfires in the area of O154 044. This does not mean that this is ok with the farmers there.

The north-west end of Lough Dan has a lovely crescent shaped 'beach' of shale that would be a great place to visit. I have also seen people camp there, or further up the Inchavore River to the west. My photo shows this tropical 'beach' as it was two years ago. I hope constant rainfall and flooding haven't ruined it!

If all else fails there is a scout campsite at the southern end of the lake at O155 026. If you have any connection to Scouting you could pay to camp there. (I'd advise booking in advance through Scouting Ireland)

Best of luck on your Wicklow Way walk. The section from Knockree to Glendalough is, in my opinion, the best for views. But to beat the crowds you would have to get above Glendalough and further south.
