Bushcraft / Wilderness Techniques - €50

Sunrise Walks - €30 / €40

Watch the sun rise over the Wicklow Mountains and the Irish Sea, enjoy the Dawn Chorus and see our native wildlife that you will only ever see at this special time of the day – all while feasting on a continental breakfast at the Fairy Castle, the highest point on the Dublin Mountains.

Night Hikes - €30 / €40

Hiking at night is a totally different experience - once you try it, you’ll be hooked.

Enjoy the spectacular views of the stars, the city lights and the sounds of nature by night while having your supper at the summit of Three Rock Mountain.

Hear and see our native bats, badgers, foxes and deer – depending on the time of year, you may even see deer rutting – an unforgettable experience!

Full Day Tour - €49


You will meet your guide at the Step Inn in Stepaside at 10am. Enjoy a home-baked scone and a cup of tea or coffee before setting off on your hike. Your guide will take you right to the highest point of the Dublin Mountains, the Fairy Castle (a pre-historic cairn or burial site), via Tibradden Mountain and on to the Three Rock Mountain. You can enjoy walking through different terrains such as bogland, forest and open country, have a packed lunch and all the time, enjoy the beautiful views and surroundings.

We will make our way back to Stepaside, descending from the Three Rock Mountain through forest towards Barnacullia, passing the famous Blue Light Pub, a local landmark. We will then continue downhill through picturesque woodland until we reach the historical site of Kilgobbin Church and High Cross before enjoying a well-deserved light dinner, live music and a sing-song!


Half-Day Tour – €39


You will meet your guide at the Step Inn in Stepaside, a small village at the foothills of the Dublin Mountains, at 10am. Here you can enjoy a home-baked scone and a cup of tea or coffee while your friendly guide talks to you about the walk ahead.

The half-day tour will take in a 2-3 hour walk at a relaxed pace bringing you about half way up the Dublin Mountains. Here you can enjoy the beautiful views of Dubliln City and Dublin Bay, listen to local legends and stories, see some wildlife and maybe even have a little nip of Irish Whiskey!

We will then make our way back to Stepaside through picturesque woodland and pass the historical church and high cross at Kilgobbin. After your walk, you can relax and enjoy a light lunch, some live music and a sing-song!
