Djouce dominates the views of the Wicklow Mountains from Roundwood and Newtown Mountkennedy. The Old Irish word dígas is defined by the Dictionary of the Irish Language as 'high, lofty; a height'. There is a Sliab Digsa mentioned in the Metrical Dindshenchas, where the second element is interpreted as a woman's name. This shows that the meaning of dígas was already obscure by the time of the Metrical Dindshenchas (12th century) and a story was probably invented to account for the name.   Djouce is the 93rd highest place in Ireland.

spiderman on Djouce, 2008

This weekend we had planned some time ago to do a 'two dayer'. Luckily for us it also happened to be the opening weekend of the all new Knockree Hostel owned by an Oige - a fine facility but one I'm sure we can go into at another time. Day two saw ten of us start at Knockree where we caught up with the WW just above the descent to the Glencree River and on up to Crone Wood. The wooden bridge over the river appears to be a favourite haunt for campers and to their shame, some of them have left a disgraceful mess behind them on both sides. The walk through Crone is a pleasant one and the payoff is when you reach the view overlooking Powerscourt. From a lofty position it gives breathtaking views of the valley and waterfall. The walk continues along the ridge before it turns 'inland' and then downwards to cross the Dargle(?). The view of Djouce is breathtaking. While there are more challenging ascents around, it can be a bit of a slog in parts, particularly from the footbridge to the stile, then the walk evens out somewhat until the WW and the summit path split where it gets difficult although not of the proportions of Slieve Donard in the Mournes (which I now compare everything to - it helps me psychologically!). All told the walk is about 20km and after the 16km (Prince Williams Seat, Knocknagun, Ravens Rock we were a tired but satisfied bunch afterwards. Trackback:

I climbed this mountain today (Easter Sat. 05) with most of the family to do a bit of research for the Navan Hillwalkers outing next Sunday.Well, the views were fantastic until the cloud came down low. What is pretty amazing is the "boardwalk" that runs from the carpark aforesaid along the Wicklow Way route. The "boardwalk" has been constructed as part of the fightback against the damage caused by overwalking in some of the most popular beauty spots.It makes things very easy...which feels like cheating. Take a look! Suitable for very small mountainy men. Trackback:

We climbed Djouce on the 3rd Jan 2010 in excellent snow conditions. Access from the Sally Gap road was not possible due to ice and snow on the road so we had to park just below the Djouce Forest car park. The snow was a bit soft in places and over a foot deep - snow shoes might have been useful. The conditions near the top were a bit icy and crampons were advisable. Very cold on the summit with a severe wind chill. Great views in all directions and we stayed long enough to see a wonderful sunset, getting back to the car as darkness fell. Trackback:

Climbed Djouce on Friday 4th of November. Made the error of beginning at the waterfall- "NO ACCESS TO WICKLOW WAY- NO ACCESS TO DJOUCE" and other such welcoming signs for tourist and native alike. Climbed up along deer-proof fence near waterfall- not really recommended. Once on the Wicklow Way, couldn't have asked for better- beautiful conditions up to last kilometre. Great path restoration near the top- very sensitively done and fenced-off rejuvenation areas show clearly the damage we do. Hail and then snow with sixty-mile an hour wind at top- fantastic. Retreated back the way we came, but took a right turn at the forest and down to carpark Trackback:
