in August 2015 I went to walk the Wicklow Way from Iron Bridge to Dublin with Markus, a friend from Germany. If you start in Iron Bridge you will be walking 5/7 of the entire way.
My wife gave us a lift to Iron Bridge on a Sunday Morning and we started our trip at 10:00 am with light drizzle and a feeling that this is going to be a beautiful and exciting trip.
We were well equipped so the rain didn’t bother us at all. After a very steep beginning through forest we arrived at a hut, which at that time didn’t catch our attention.
At the beginning it wasn’t easy to leave reality behind and become one with the surroundings. But soon nature revealed its ancient face and some amazing colours.
We continued our ascent and reached the top of the first mountain pretty soon.
We took a small detour to explore the regional forest and the boggy landscape before we arrived in the valley of Glenmalure where we stayed for the night.
