Hi ddiamond. I would suggest two possible routes for you in your upcoming walking weekend. I would presume at least one of you has good navigation skills and a sound knowledge of safety in the hills. If so let me suggest the following:

Route 1-a route that starts at Knockree Hostel in Glencree Valley. Knockree is a recently built/refurbished luxury hostel with all mod cons and some en-suite rooms. Stay here Friday and then walk 20 km along the Wicklow Way to Lough Dan on Saturday, taking in some spectacular scenery, especially as you look over Lough Tay and beyond. Stay in a B&B in the Lough Dan area on Saturday night. Sunday you could head from Lough Dan to Knocknacloghoge and Luggala (Fancy Mountain). From there head up Djouce, War Hill and Maulin. From Maulin drop back down to the Wicklow Way and follow it back to Knockree Hostel. Not sure of the distance of the second day but it would be long and tiring!

Route 2-a route that starts at either Lough Dan or Glendalough.
Friday night stay in a B&B in the Lough Dan or Glendalough area. Starting at Lough Dan follow the Wicklow Way approximately 26-30kms through Glendalough to Glenmalure. Alternatively start from Glendalough and shave 10kms or so off the journey. This is a lovely walk which takes in some great scenery, especially across to Lugnaquillia on a good day. Saturday night stay in Glenmalure lodge or local B&B. Sunday head up Glenmalure Valley and follow the track all the way up to the saddle between Camenabologue and Table Mountain. From here navigate across to Conavalla and back down into Glendalough either via the area known as Seven Churches or via Tomaneena (Turlough Hill) and Camaderry. Another long and tiring days walking!

As you can see maps would be heavily needed and good skill in the hills. I am writing the routes from memory without my maps so apologies for any obvious mistakes that are spotted. Hope this helps.

Aidand's directions are spot on. The road that looks like an entrance to a house actually leads into a forest, it is rough but manageable if you drive very slow. I drove as far as an old abandoned...

You can start at Ballaghisheen, a mountain pass V671 792. Space here for 3-4 cars. Ballaghisheen is at just over 300m so the climb to the top at around 551m is not a great strain. There is a sign ...
