Exploring Glendalough Valley

The Spink Loop is an excellent loop walk with a good waymarked trail in County Wicklow. This loop includes the Glendalough Valley which is part of the Wicklow Mountains National Park. This place is located only an hour’s drive from Dublin. The trail is very well maintained and walkers will appreciate it a lot. When you get tired and hungry, you can head back to the Visitor Centre and refresh yourself at the restaurant there. Alternatively, there is a village nearby called the Laragh where there are lots of restaurants and pubs. This is also a nice place to explore the mountains in the vicinity. The great height of Lugnaquilla, the highest mountain in Wicklow, will appeal to the daring and experienced walkers. Those wanting to play it safe and just looking for a relaxing walk can choose to explore the historic sites at Glenmalure or have a picnic near the beautiful area surrounding Lough Dan. Visitors will especially want to check out the Powerscourt Waterfall here which happens to be the highest waterfall in Ireland.
