Map Description

With over a quarter of Ireland's population living within the area represented on Sheet 50, it is easy to see why this is one of the best selling Discovery Series maps. There are four long-distance walking trails on this map which include the Dublin Mountains Way, the Grand Canal Way, the Royal Canal Way and the Wicklow Way.

Dublin City

At the scale of 1:50,000, Sheet 50 is good for giving an overview of the different outlying suburbs of Dublin City but it doesn't have the detail of streetnames if they are required. The map includes the full coastline from Malahide and part of Donabate to the north of the city, down as far as Shankill to the south. On the west of the city, it includes the complete county boundary from Kilsallaghan, to the northwest of Swords, down through Clonee, Blanchardstown and Lucan, and on as far as the southwest boundary at Saggart and Brittas.

*In order to maximise the longevity of any map, it is always recommended to keep it sealed in a plastic map case when using it in the great outdoors.

The Dublin Mountains Way

Officially opened in 2010, the Dublin Mountains Way is one of the newest long distance walking trails in Ireland. It begins in Shankill and finishes over 40km later in Tallaght after having visited Three Rock Mountain, Fairy Castle, Tibradden Mountain, Masseys' Estate, the Hellfire Club and the Glenasmole Reservoirs. All of the trail is covered on Sheet 50.

The Wicklow Way

The Wicklow Way, in contrast to the Dublin Mountains Way, is Ireland's oldest long-distance walking trail. The northern-most section of the trail is covered on Sheet 50, from Marlay Park heading south over the first mountain pass at Fairy Castle before descending to Boranaraltry, just outside Glencullen.

The Grand Canal Way and the Royal Canal Way

Both the Royal Canal and the Grand Canal were completed in the early 19th Century and were used to transport goods from Dublin to the River Shannon. They were used up until the middle of the 20th Century and have been restored in more recent years to help fulfill their tourism potential.

The Grand Canal Way is the longer of the two trails at 115km. It begins near Lucan, at Adamstown and finishes at Shannon Harbour, to the north of Bannagher in County Offaly. Sheet 50 shows the first 14km from Adamstown as far as Killeen, just to the northwest of Kill.

The Royal Canal Way is 105km long and begins in Ashtown and stretching as far as the Shannon in Abbeyshrule, County Lonford. Sheet 50 covers the 20km of the trail from Ashtown as far as  Maynooth.
