Picture: Dublin and Howth Head from Fairy Castle
Enjoying the peace above the busy metropolis
by wicklore  4 Jul 2011
This is a live post from Fairy Castle (Two Rock Mountain)

sitting here at the summit cairn as the late evening sun lengthens the shadows of the trig pillar and cairn itself. The atmosphere is crystal clear, and for the first time up here I can see as far as Tonelagee, Mullaghcleevaun, the Cooleys, the Mournes and as far west as an eye can see. Magical! All the Wicklow/Dublin hills within 15 kms feel like they are just beside me. The silence is amazing, especially as the sprawl of the city lies just below. If you get the chance on these fine evenings grab it and enjoy these accessible hills.  Linkback:

I walk regularly in Kilmashogue forest and up two rock moutain. I noticed recently there is a planning application for a helicopter pad on Kilmashogue lane. Kilmashogue is a wonderful amenity and regularly used by those out for a stroll as well as the more seasoned walkers of the wicklow way. I am concerned that the noise of helicopter taking off and landing would intrude on wildlife in the area around Kilmashgoue ( I counted 16 deer last week in Kilmashogue and constantly see pheasant, rabbits etc,etc ). The proposed site is the field immediately opposite Kilmashogue car park. Is my concern a valid one ? I would appreciate your comments Linkback:

Did a short jaunt from Tibradden to the top of Two Rock last night, amazed to finds we were the only people on this route given how gorgeoys an evening it was. The new trail from Tibradden is great but already it's showing signs of erosion and between Tibradeden mountain and where you gjin the Wicklow Way, the gravel on the humpy parts of the trail seems to giving way on both sides - all four in our pparty slipped on at least three occasions.
This is ok as long as it stays dry, but the fear is that once we get back to normal wet winter weather the erosion will get worse and sections of this trail will simply wash away. I don't know if was possible to seed the sides of the trail to try and hold the soil together when they were building it but what is now a great resource - especially for people who wouldn't normally go up the hills - could end up a liability come next January.

Heaped clouds, fairy lights on the fairy castle.
by simon3  16 Nov 2010
Taken from 12k away on the Little Sugar Loaf, Two Rock is garlanded with lights in this late evening view taken one November.
The heaped clouds are lit by the remains of the dying sunlight from on top and the fiery orange red from the sodium lights of Dublin. The two lights to right of the summit are on a Three Rock TV transmitter. Linkback:

I Know, here I am again climbing 2rock - but this time with a difference... I left my house in Dundrum, at 6pm on Saturday 03/06 walked over by Nutgrove up through Marlay Park and out on to College Road, under the M50 and up Kilmashogue Lane to the forest entrance - birds singing, lambs bleating, the odd cow enjoying the evening sun chewing the cud, I entered the forest, up the WW to the top of 2 rock - the sun was setting to the West and I was all alone - WONDERFUL skylarks sang above me, and after a quick rest, went back down to Ticknock carpark, down by Kellystown through Ballinteer and back to Dundrum - 3 1/2 hours - I'm thinking of walking to Enniskerry across the mountains and home by the road some summers day - it would be nice without ise of any transport except shanks mare!!
