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.

A great way to introduce your family to hill walking
by DavidjWalsh  16 Feb 2016
Djouce Mountain offers a great way to introduce your family to hill walking. There are two car park areas on the R759 to set off from. For families with really young kids even a short 10 minute walk up to the JB Malone memorial (Large boulder rock) offers beautiful views of Lough Tay and the surrounding areas.
After the memorial the walk continues on railway sleepers and does not gain or lose major height until you get to a forested area with a wooden step over. This is a perfect spot to stop for a picnic. Kids as young as 3 have comfortably made it to this point and had enough in the tank for the return journey.
At this point you are ¼ way to the summit, for families with older kids you can continue on the Wicklow way until you get to a point where the path splits right (east) and the summit is straight on. While this is a comfortable introductory hike with clear paths the weather can still turn very quickly with heavy mist making visibility and navigation difficult, please make sure you have and can use a compass and OS map no 56. Enjoy a wonderful hike.

The photo is taken from the JB Malone memorial view point with Lough Tay in the background. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/91/comment/18436/
