Walk the Vartry Reservoir to celebrate St Patrick's Day

This is a wonderful walk around the Vartry Reservoir beside the village of Roundwood. As well as the lovely lake, there are some very interesting elements including cut stone bridges and towers and the Filter Beds at Diamond Hill. This area is also a haven for wild life and if we keep quiet (!!) we might even see otters. Guaranteed "Slope Free" as it is a reservoir!!
We might even go in search of "Green Beer" in downtown Roundwood when we are finished or might settle for a cup of coffee!!

    This morning's 10 k walk around the two lakes of Varty Reservoir was fantastic. Easy walking on the lakeshore, and the weather was good. Beautiful scenery. It's fascinating to see the waterworks, built in 1922, and to see where the water for south Dublin comes from.

    Hi Dairine. I would love to get back into walking again as k have been very lazy over the winter months. This walk seems ideal to wean my poor muscles back into shape. Are dogs allowed on leads on this walk?

      Yes dogs are allowed there but you will probably have to use just one pole as leads and two poles are hard to manage! This is a nice flat one so a good one to get back to and the Sunday pace is usually gentle enough. We are meeting at Healy Pottery, half way up the Rocky Valley to pool cars if possible and meeting at 10.45. My number is[masked] if you are lost!!
