Croghan or Croghan Kinsella, not to be confused with Croghan Moira, is near Gorey on the border between south Wicklow and north Wexford. Due to it's distance from Dublin it is less often visited but due to it's proximity to the N11/M11 can be reached from Dublin in little more than an hour. It is well worth the drive. Take exit 22 and drive north west for about 10k through the village of Killinieran to Wicklow Gap, not to be confused with the better known Wicklow Gap further north.

The route passes throughforest tracks, open mountainside and grassland, passing along the border line between the two counties for part of the route. The top of Croghan overlooks the village of Aughrim. It is part rocky and airy with splendid views over the Irish Sea to the east an unusual aspect towards the more southerly of the Wicklow mountains including Lug and wide open spaces in other directions.
