I’ve heard many talk about going up The Great Sugarloaf Mountain but it’s something I hadn’t ever gotten around to. Well with the New Year here and a fabulously sunny day I decided to bite the bullet and do it!
I parked in the car park at the base of the trail and off I went. The views are stunning. I could see stretches of Dublin, Wicklow and The Irish Sea. It was Irish horizons all around and it was the most picturesque site ever.
The walk itself was lovely. There were people of all ages climbing up and down, one man even had a little baby who was definitely under 12 months strapped onto him while doing the walk. There is a steep part towards the very top which is a bit of a scramble and I must admit made me slightly nervous but it was definitely doable and worth it. Mind you next time I would wear my hiking boots rather than the runners! There are also three different pathways to the top to choose from so you can choose the one that best suits you and the people who are walking with you.
This trail is a must do for both locals and visitors to Ireland.
Get out there and explore 🙂
