Has anyone done this? I would be interested in what you thought of it and are there any bad drops, cliff edges, I was assured on here about the Coast to Coast and the advice proved correct.

Also, does anyone know where I can get a copy of the J B Malone guide book to the walk?

I have a book on this as I had planned to do it. I don't think there were any major drops or anything to worry about.

I did it a long time ago before Irish O/S maps were available and it was a nightmare of route finding. I'm hope it has improved now, but I wouldn't be surprised if it hasn't as they are not very diligent about waymarking in Ireland.......

Cordee maps has a guide:

Did you complete this? I'm looking at Ireland next summer (2013) and would appreciate your comments on this walk.

Hi guys.

I realise this post might be a bit late for some who asked questions regarding this walk.

My wife and I walked the Wicklow Way in June 2013. it's a very easy walk compared to some long distance walks, the only complaint we have is that a lot of the trees have been cleared in the many woods/forests that dominate the walk but other than that it is a good walk with some great views. The main thing that sticks in our mind is the B&B's we stayed in, the owners are so helpful and the accommodation is first class.
It's a walk well worth doing.
