St. Kevin’s Way, Sunday, 27th May 2018

We begin our trek in the small village of Valleymount and finish in the medieval surroundings of the ever popular Glendalough. A moderate level of fitness is required as you will be covering approximately 30 km over the day.

After the walk we will have refreshments and a chance to take in the surroundings before returning to Dublin by bus.
