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.

1 March 2009, Sunday afternoon walk from Ballinastoe parking place to the top of Djouce Mountain. What a sky! Easy enough walk to start the walking season, so we decided to challenge ourselves a bit more and took a route off the beaten track when descending to the car park; tricky enough through the thick heather, but very rewarding, because all of a sudden we stumbled upon a lovely big patch of snow. The amount of quartz stones is great on the Southeastern slope of the mountain! Linkback:

If you've got young kids or friends who don't have boots, the woods at the feet of Djouce are a pleasant place to spend an easy afternoon. This pic shows the woods with Djouce itself rearing up behind. Taken from the summit of the Sugar Loaf. Linkback:

This used to be considered the toughest mountain to climb within range of a days hike from Enniskerry. The first time I did it it ( in the 70s ) we got a bus to Enniskerry, set off on foot to Crone wood, up over the shoulder of Maulin to the top of the waterfall, then up along a ridge to Djouce. We returned down to Paddock Lake ( there was a lake there then ) then walked back by road to Enniskerry. In those days once on the open mountain there were almost no tracks to follow and no erosion.
I climbed it again last weekend with some of the kids. The 3rd car park near Paddock lake in Djouce woods was closed off for some reason, so we parked in the second car park. This added about an extra Kilometre going and coming back to the hike, but where the forest has been felled it has opened spectacular views of the waterfall. We continued up the forest road and then for a short section through the forest to come out at the point where the Wicklow way turns south leaving the edge of the forest to go up the open mountain. The last section to the summit then goes up from the Wicklow way. It is badly eroded but hopefully will recover thanks to the work done by Mountain Meithil. Overall about 10 K took us under 5 hours - not bad with a 6 year old along. Great views as well, up to the Mournes and we could also see the tops of the Welsh Mountains. A great walk to bring kids along in fine weather. Linkback:

19-Jul-06 Myself and the two children (8 and 5) plan to walk the Wicklow Way, in easily managed stages, from Marley Park to Roundwood/Glendalough (depending), over the summer hols. My 8 year old has been up Djouce twice since April, coming from Djouce Woods but this time we parked at Ballinastoe Woods and walked along the Wicklow Way, using the boardwalks, up to White Hill. Then we left the Wicklow Way and walked up to Djouce. The ascent was really easy and it was a lovely walk with great views all the way. Because there is so much erosion along the walk, we came down Djouce via the stone pathway, where we rejoined the Wicklow Way and followed it back to White Hill and the car park. All in all, an excellent family activity, where the children came home with a real sense of achievement. Highly recommended. Linkback:

I need to clarify a comment relating to dedicated bike track opposite Djouce car parks.This is an commonage area called BallyRemon commons and environmental damage here has been severe in recent years. Seeing Motor Bike in the forestry, on Djouce or on these commons diminishes the amenities the area around Djouce has to offer . Linkback:

For the last two weekends I've brought novices up Djouce via Maulin from Crone Wood. A great way to introduce people to hill walking in Wicklow. I always place an emphasis on safety then the environment when walking with newcomers to the hills. However, it still is beyond my comprehension that obviously experienced ramblers do not follow the marked tracks with the very obvious anti erosion signage. My hat goes off by the way to the Mountain Meitheal people working on the Wicklow Way on the way down to the bridge at Glensoulan. Linkback:
