Walking suggestions, help please
Hello. My wife comes from the north and so I have enjoyed many happy times in the Mournes, alone, with family and in some of the walking festivals (which if you haven't tried them I can recommend - with a hearty breakfast at Castlewellan of course).
Anyway, we are going to be in our campervan at Donard, to the west of the Wicklow mountains soon. Looking on MountainViews, I was a bit concerned to see that some of the routes near there are a bit churned up by quad bikes and so on.
So, I'd really appreciate suggestions from anyone for good walks in that area (I'm fit, experienced, with good gear) with good aesthetic appeal too please.
After Donard we're heading north west (not as far as Donegal) so any suggestions over that way would be much appreciated.
Then we'll be across to the Mournes - yes I can't stay away. A favourite approach is up via Hares Gap then, as the mood takes, left, right or straight ahead (though I'm not a fan of the bog of Donard!) to then loop round to the woods above Annalong and a pint or two in the Harbour Bar to round things off.

Although this hill is forested and unremarkable, the journey to it is very rewarding offering great views of Lough Tay and part of Lough Dan, nestling amid the rolling hills.
