Adventure Travel Shop Guest Post: Hiking Ireland’s Wicklow Mountains

This summer’s European honeymoon adventure that I’ve been (slowly, but surely) writing about concluded with trip to Ireland. By this point in the journey, I was feeling pretty “citied out,” and seriously craving some peace, quiet, and green space.

I had started feeling uninspired, indifferent and fatigued…all emotions I never expected to experience on this trip. Clearly, this was the time to trade in crowds and lines for trees and trails. So we hopped on the first bus out of Dublin one morning for Wicklow Mountains National Park, which covers part of a mountain range that extends over most of County Wicklow on the east coast of Ireland.

Giovanna at Adventure Travel Shop was kind enough to publish a guest post I wrote to share with her readers about our much-needed time in the mountains and travel tips for pulling off a similar excursion for yourself. Check out my latest guest post, some scenic photos from the day, and Giovanna’s site here: Hiking Ireland’s Wicklow Mountains via Adventure Travel Shop!
