The Brides Glen walk

Looped walk | 10.63 km | Co. Dublin | Moderate walk | Public Transport



Trail Description

A pleasant walk that takes in the rathmicheal rath, the lead mines chimney, carrickgollogan hill (great views from the summit) and the old viking church and celtic crosses at Tully cross. A fair amount of tarmac walking also but the the heronford lane stretch is very quite (apart from the footbridge over the M50). This walk is espcially recommended on a sunny afternoon in the Autmun. Access to the walk is via the luas - start from the terminus and get the luas back to town from the laughanstown stop.

Trail Comments

Can the Bride's Glen Viaduct be walked end-to-end? Alternatively is there any way to use the Viaduct to go across Cherrywood Rd to Shankill FC?

I did this walk over the weekend - pleasant, a nice quiet route. Decided to end in Shankhill by leaving Carrickgolligan through Quarry Rd and Dublin Mountains Way. Worked nicely!

I managed to scramble onto the viaduct at south end, and walked across, but could not exit at north end
