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.

Myself and the girlfriend went up djouce yesterday (St Paddy's day), we approached from the Lough Tay side (which is the south-side). The majority of the way up is all walking on the studded sleepers, as the land has damaged by erosion. It was a lovely day out, and was great to see so many families out and about. Not a very taxing walk at all, but the scenery is lovely which more than makes up for this.

Next time I might approach from the Crone woods side, as I don't think there's any studded sleeps on this side, just the normal mountain path. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/91/comment/4516/

Djouce , Sun 9th Oct even though we knew there was a Southerly Gale blowing. Meant to be easing 2 "golfers" out on to the hills, last week we were on Seehan circuit which was fantastic for them , under 3 hrs and What an historic setting. Back to Djouce and the wind and the change of mind which brought us to the "top" even though we were meant to be following the Way to roundwood. "One" nearly "died" though he had been this way! before while on dialysis and did the whole Way then, he also introduced me to Djouce, the light was very good, a lot of people on the boardwalk coming from the JB Malone but we were nearly alone on the final walk in, met 2 "yanks" from Chicago who were doing the whole W.Way who said there are "only streets and n****rs" (sic) in Chicago, we didn't let that upset us but told them they had just finished the nicest part and urged them to continue on to Glendalough today hoping they got caught in the rain which we just missed, we will do this again and again, last year it was done in beautiful snowy conditions, Heaven!

Walking Djouce mountain from Ballinastoe Woods via the Wicklow Way is an excellent route for walkers looking for an easier hike or for young walkers. Navigation is very straight forward and the summit views are excellent. Watch out for changeable weather and Djouce like Kippure is often shrouded in mist. All in all it is a great easy trek considering you are on an 800+ metre peak! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/91/comment/587/

Walked Djouce on 22/08/05. Started at forest on road to Roundwood (209106 A Discovery Series Map 56) then join Wicklow Way. Don't take direct route to summit as badly eroded. Walk past on Wicklow Way and approach from ridge. Then across to War Hill. Visit Coffin Stone on way (see pic). Route back via river Dargle to forest very deep in fern/heather...be warned!!!

Picture: Andi at the JB Malone Monument
loz on Djouce, 2006

Climbed Djouce on Sun 26th Mar 2006 - Ascended from Ballinastoe carpark on the R749 at O169074 B
This was a new route for me and Andi - My 5 year old Daughter, thru the forests - and up the boardwalks via White Hill. My Sheet 56 seems to have over exaggerated the volume of forest in the area - with the JB Malone monument in pine woodland ? - not in case in real life ! - With low visability for any decent landmarking - and unable to keep a good pacecount due to marching songs- i was unable to plot an approximate position for the stile at the last piece of woodland ( i just want to compare the edge of the treelines and position of the stile in reality with my own sheet which shows it around O17300845 C) - does anyone have a grid for this ? - The stile also has a sign with it explaining the reasoning for the boardwalk.

Visability very low - 20-30 foot
Rain very wet !
Wind - well ! hold on top small children !

Very enjoyable al the same - although Andi was upset that all the snow from my last vist had gone - and the snowball fight promised was not to be had ! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/91/comment/2250/
