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 92nd highest place in Ireland.

Climed to Djouce Mountain from War Hill on the 7th of June, a sunny day. With a beautiful view on Greystones and Bray. Linkback:

Hill Walking Lite! Done Djouce via the boardwalk as I had a couple of spare hours this morning in the area. Parked in Ballinastoe woods and from there, it's a handy walk out over White Hill before leaving the boardwalk where it veers downhill, heading instead up the very obvious wide path to the summit of Djouce which offers superb views across Dublin on out to Howth.

Not sure the boardwalk is for me but the very visible erosion provides ample evidence as to why this action was taken. Actually easier walking up the boardwalk than walking down it - the descent took me back to youthful days of being on a bike with dodgy brakes.. you are never sure if you can stop should you really need to!

One to bring the kids to on a good day - an easy way to gain some height and enjoy some excellent views. Linkback:

Walked Djouce twice, early Feb and April 1st. Parked in Crone car park and walked up along the side of Crone woods on the wicklow way which leads all the way up to just below the summit of Djouce. Afterwards headed south to White Hill which stood up to its name in the snow. Tracked back along the wicklow way at the side of djouce which was treacherous in the snow once the studded sleepers were covered.

On a clear day there are great views all around the area for miles. Nice walk which can be challenging at times in the snow but still very enjoyable. Linkback:

A popular destination

Djouce was a pleasant amble and the weather was beautiful on that crisp January morning. However, when we moved from War Hill over to the summit via the Coffin Stone the place was littered with people. My next walk will be a little more isolated, methinks! Linkback:

Climbed this last Summer. Left the car at O203091 A. The track will take you right through to the other side of the forest. Turn right here and head over to the stream, then start climbing. There is a natural crossing point at the stream soon after, its easy to find. Then its a straightforward, pleasant march to the summit, which for us was completely mist-shrouded even though it was a very pleasant day. This is a really straightforward mountain to climb. The ground is pretty good, not boggy. Also its very hard to get lost. The aforementioned stream leads up to near the summit and this will lead you back to the forest on your way down. Its easy to find the beginning of the forest path as you come down the mountain as well because the trees either side of it are different heights! Definitely not a mountain for wilderness lovers. We went up on a weekday morning and there were two parties already ahead of us, as well as a couple of walkers on the Wicklow way. Linkback:
