Why a Self-Guided Tour?

You can walk the Wicklow Way on your own without doing a self-guided tour, but it’s time consuming to find and plan your route. I walked the Wicklow Way with and loved how convenient it was. All my accommodation was booked, and luggage transfer was arranged. I was given a map and route instructions each day.

Often, my accommodation wasn’t directly on the Wicklow Way, and it would have been complicated to organize on my own, but with, they provided additional instructions, which sometimes included calling the accommodation and asking for a pickup.

I also love the flexibility that a walking self-guided tour provides. You determine how early (or late, after a few too many at the pub) you start, where and when you stop, and how often you stop, and where you stop to eat.  I loved being independent, while knowing that has an emergency number I could call should anything go wrong.
