This is a circuit which takes in the infant River Dodder, Mareens Brook and Cot Brook. It involves light scrambling in a narrow river valley in an area steeped in lore, while climbing the highest and most southern summit in Dublin – Kippure. Kippure is one of the most climbed hills on MountainViews, but you can be guaranteed peace and isolation for most of this walk. While walking you may reflect on the activities of Finn McCool and his Fenian Men who roamed and hunted in this area.
This walk will take about 6 hours if you intend (like I did) to stop often to gaze at the cataracts, pools and sheer beauty of the brooks you are walking beside. Otherwise it can be done in 4 hours. Care is required when following the Dodder and various brooks as the rivers are fast flowing with lots of big drops. This route crosses large areas of bog so is best kept for a good day.
To add quality to this route print out Walk 104 at http://mountainviews.ie/walk/104/ This will give some interpretation of this beautiful area with a mix of historical fact and mythology.

Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, a rough and often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 3h 36m + time stopped for breaks
Note: It is up to you to ensure that your route is appropriate for you and your party to follow bearing in mind all factors such as safety, weather conditions, experience and access permission.
