Walking & Hiking in Wicklow

Ballyknocken House which has been specialising in Walking Holidays for over 30 years and we are pleased to offer both weekend and weekly walking packages:

County Wicklow, known as the “Garden of Ireland” offers spectacular scenery with its rolling hills, deep valleys, lakes, domed granite mountains and a coastline of picturesque bays.
Ballyknocken House is the ideal location for Wicklow walking holidays and Ireland hiking trips in Ireland and boasts Ireland’s famous hillwalking route, “The Wicklow Way”, close-by making it the perfect choice for walking packages.

Enjoy a three night weekend walking break to explore the Wicklow Way on a self-guided walk with a hearty Ballyknocken Picnic taking in Glenmalure Valley and Glendalough and on the second day explore Carrick Forest & Mountain directly behind Ballyknocken House.
