Wicklow Way 2024 : Stage 6


The final leg of the Wicklow Way, from Shillelagh to Clonegal, offers a scenic and rewarding walk through a diverse landscape.

The first part takes you through Raheenakit Forest, a scenic woodland area. You’ll also pass around Stokeen, Moylisha, and Urelands hills, offering some moderate climbs and stunning views. The second section takes a dramatic shift as you descend towards the broad valley of the River Derry. This final stretch offers a gentle walk along the Wicklow/Carlow border, culminating in the charming village of Clonegal.

The Shillelagh to Clonegal leg is a fantastic way to experience the beauty and diversity of the Wicklow Way. With its moderate difficulty and stunning scenery, it’s a perfect choice for both experienced hikers and those looking for a challenging yet rewarding day hike.
