Enniskerry

On Saturday morning I woke up early, packed up, and took a bus about an hour outside of Dublin to the small village of Enniskerry. From there I just walked away towards the hills. The countryside was absolutely beautiful to walk through, even though I didn’t really know where I was going (except kinda SW towards Glendalough).

Up on my right was the hill of the Great Sugarloaf (501m), a quartzite cone that is really quite beautiful, especially with the sheep grazing on the slopes below. Eventually I found some trails leading from a car park towards the Wicklow Way Trail (I actually walked into Wicklow County in turns out), but after a few minutes I turned around and stayed on the road. For the first time in a long time I hadn’t felt comfortable on a trail, so I headed that inner warning and didn’t stick around to figure out what was causing that feeling.

Anyways, I walked for about 5 hours and made it back to the bus stop and began the journey to the airport, which was about a two-hour bus ride from where I was hiking. I made it to the airport without any issue, and the flight home went very smoothly. Overall, it was a wonderful time in Dublin and Enniskerry, definitely one of the more fun stops (especially due to the two tours on Friday!).

    Nice pix! You missed visiting Powerscourt Demesne, though perhaps you wanted to keep to the wilder parts.
