This map is one of the biggest sellers in the Discovery Series. At a scale of 1:50,000, the map includes the vast majority of the Wicklow Mountains National Park and some of the country's most popular walking destinations including Lugnaquillia Mountain, the Wicklow Way and Saint Kevin's Way.
There are over 200 square kilometers of wild mountainous landscape within the Wicklow Mountains National Park that provide open access to the public. Whilst Glendalough is widely known to be the centre of the park, it actually extends far beyond to include such popular hillwalking mountains as Mullaghcleevaun, Tonelagee and Djouce.
Lugnaquillia has long been one of the most popular spots for walking in Wicklow. At a height of 925m, not only is it the highest mountain in County Wicklow but it is the highest mountain outside of County Kerry. This is not a mountain for inexperienced walkers as there are no signposted routes up the mountain and a number of precipitous cliffs surrounding the summit, not to mention an artillery range for the Irish Army to the northwest of the summit!
Sheet 56 is available in either a waterproof finish or in a standard paper finish. Unless the map is laminated, it is always recommended to carry the map in a plastic case to maximise its longevity.
The most frequented portions of the Wicklow Way are included on this map. Starting close to the border of County Dublin, the trail runs from north of Prince William's Seat past Knockree, across the shoulder of Djouce and around the western edge of Roundwood, near Lough Dan then across Paddock Hill, skirting Laragh and through Glendalough before finally crossing the shoulder of Mullacor to reach Glenmalure.
