 From there we will walkpast the Yellow House and the beautiful Rathfranham Parish church through the Old Beaufort estate towards Loreto Abbey.

We will walk up Grange Road towards St. Enda's Park.

In  St. Enda's Park  we can visit Ireland's first Irish school St. Enda's and the Pearse Museum.

We continue our walk up to Marlay Park, the starting point for the Wicklow way.

We will follwo the Wicklow Way from there up to Johnnie Fox's Pub.

The Wicklow Way begins at the car park adjacent to Marlay House, with its courtyard of interesting craft workshops and a pleasant little coffee shop. The trail wanders through the delightful sylvan surroundings of this fine suburban public park, before tunnelling under the M50 motorway to begin the walk's first ascent southwards towards the Dublin hills and the first of several forest vistas (this one predominantly of communication masts!).

Passing Kilmashogue, Fairy Castle (536 m), Two Rock and Tibradden mountains the trail descends to reach the Glencullen road at Ballybrack after 9 km. Walking eastwards along the road, the route then turns south (A diversion of 2 km eastwards will take the weak-willed to Johnny Fox's world-famous pub and also an occasional bus service back to the city!) to cross the Glencullen River.

Here we leave the trail and head into Glencullen.

From there  Dublin Bus provides transport back to Dublin.
