Wicklow Walking Festival - October Bank Holiday Weekend in Co. Wicklow ‘The Garden of Ireland’, is renowned worldwide for its scenic beauty, offering a variety of walking challenges – from woodlands and rolling hills to wild craggy mountain climbs.

The Festival will be based in the Brockagh Resource Centre with many of the walks taking us through Wicklow Mountains National Park. The Centre is situated in the heart of the Wicklow Mountains, on the road between the village of Laragh and Glendalough.

All walks are led by experienced walking leaders who will enhance your day with information on local history flora and fauna.

The National Park is an ideal location for a fun-filled festival weekend covering approximately 90,000 hectares!
