Avonmore Valley Walks
Soon after leaving the Avonmore river, the Avonmore Valley walks reach the Wicklow Way. This lovely trail follows the valley, overlooking its lush fields and the rounded mountains on the far side. Further on, the pasture lands give way to the moorland. In the summer, it turns purple when the heather is in bloom. Continuing on towards Glendalough, Avonmore Valley walks goes across a wooded valley but soon, the trail starts to climb to a viewpoint. Magnificent views open up over Glendalough, its two lakes and the Wicklow Mountains. We also glimpse far below the round tower and the ruins of the Monastic Site.
This beautiful valley lies in the heart of Wicklow Mountains National Park. It is well-known for its magnificent landscapes, its two lakes and the ruins of a famous monastery founded in the 6th century. Its round tower has stood tall for the last ten centuries, overlooking the valley and the ruins of the Monastic Site. Avonmore Valley walks end with a guided tour of the Monastic Site. This walks doesn’t include the lakes but we have a good view over them from the view point.
The Wicklow Way starts in the west of Dublin going through the Wicklow Mountains to the mountains foothills further south. Along the way, there are beautiful views over mountains, lakes and lush countryside. Avonmore Valley walks follow the Wicklow Way for some of the way and we can delight in the stunning views over the Wicklow Mountains.
