WHERE: Saint Kevin’s Way from Hollywood village to the Wicklow Gap. This is an ancient pilgrim route (Wicklow’s answer to the Camino de Santiago in North Spain) which was used by people travelling from West Wicklow and the midlands to Glendalough. It is a valley walk which follows loosely the course of the King river upstream. It has been revived in recent years by people trying to restore a rich heritage of spirituality. It will take approximately five hours and is a moderate walk.
WHEN: Sunday, 28 September 10am-3pm
