do the "Fifty Shades of Hen" walk!

Sounds intriguing, does'nt it? This is the ultimate poultry fancier's route.... bring a crate with you! We are going to walk through the Old Downs Village and take the pack horse trail up onto Downs Hill, enjoying wonderful views over Bray Head and over to Killiney Hill. We will then take an old trail through deepest Calary, to visit a wonderful farmyard full of hens, geese, guinea fowl and rabbits. They don't come any more free range than you find them here, and there are wonderful breeds of hens, running around the hedges and roadways. When we leave the farm yard we take a small local road around to the entrance of the Altidore Wood and loop around through a very pleasant wood with a lot of beech trees and rejoin our original packhorse trail. This is a lovely loop of 12 km plus with only one eight minute slope. Great views over the Wicklow mountain range are guaranteed...

    Sheep, crocodiles, now erotic hens....what next!? "Bring a crate" - what size? Is it for a hen, eggs, looking over a wall, or any one of 50 other reasons?

      Me to Marion. Every Saturday I miss my Nordic friends and wish I was with you all. Expected to be up and running by now, I am so disappointed I am going to miss the mini marathon too.

    Thank you again Dairine. A beautiful walk through a hidden part of the Wicklow countryside, with fabulous views, farmyards, and beckoning hills - with a great friendly group.
