Last year my wife and I did the Rick Steves 8 day tour of the Republic of Ireland. One of the stops was Glendalough. I noticed the signs that mapped hiking trails in the area, including up and over the Wicklow Mountains.
Long story short, after I got home I did some searching online, discovered a company that enables self-guided walking tours - you stay at B&B's they select, and various employees of the B&B's move your luggage from place to place while you, the walker, need only take a day pack - and, long story short, my son-in-law and I will soon be in Ireland hiking the Wicklow Way, south-to-north, from Iron Bridge to South Dublin.
1. Anyone have any experience with the Wicklow Way and, if so, any tips to suggest?
- We have numerous phone numbers to call and will be there with our American (in my case T-Mobile) cell phones. The online advice on dialing Irish phone number is confusing to me. Any solid knowledge? E.g., if the number is listed as +353 nn nnnnnnn do I first have to dial 011 and then the number or what?
We are definitely excited about our upcoming trip.
