Morning: Cliff Walk, coastal walk (2 hours; easy)
As we travel with the train to Greystones, we enjoy stunning views over the sea and the coast. The Cliff Walk which links Greystones to the seaside town of Bray goes up through lush meadows but as it starts going down toward Bray, the landscape changes dramatically. The trail was carved out of the steep slopes of Bray Head and as it overlooks the sea and the railway line, there magnificent views over the coast.
Afternoon: Glendalough & Monastic Site, Wicklow Mountains (2 hours; easy)
We travel by bus to Glendalough. This valley lies at the heart of Wicklow Mountains National Park and it is well-known for its magnificent landscapes and its two lakes. It is also home to a once famous monastery and its round tower. After the guided tour of the ruins of the monastic site, we start on our walk around the valley and its two lakes.
