A grand walk close to Dublin
by brenno  5 Sep 2012
Must agree wholeheartedly with Captain V on the delights of the ridge south of Glencullen taking in Prince Williams Seat, Knocknagun and Glendoo - usually as part of a car-split walk from Cruagh Wood to Curtlestown Wood. I must have done this walk half a dozen times in the past few years and even in fine weather you'd be lucky to come across more than half a dozen people on the stretch when on the other side of the valley there will be hordes of walkers and mountain bikers on Fairie Castle, Two Rock and Three Rock. Access is dead easy - Curtlestown, Cruagh, from near the war cemetery at Glencree and the Wicklow Way from Glencullen - all no more than a half hour or so from the city. Can be a bit mucky but nothing gaiters can't handle. Tis true, lots of us Dubs will merrily drive for an hour and a half down to south Wicklow and ignore what's on our doorstep. And a good circuit of Glencullen builds up to a decent 20k-plus taking in Tibradden, Fairie Castle and Two Rock - so not just a Sunday morning stroll Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/351/comment/14797/
