Luggala (Fancy Mountain)

Location: Co. Wicklow.

Difficulty: Moderate to Hard.

Time: 3hrs 15min (with breaks)

Distance: 7.6 km.

Equipment: hiking boots (runners are fine on the tarmacked road leading to the base of the mountain)

Families: the first section is buggy friendly, but quite steep.

Rating: 4.5 stars.


This is a fantastic mountain with amazing views. The beginning of the walk takes you deep into the gully, leaving you with a steep climb uphill to the summit. Although it tests fitness levels, there is a very clear path to the top making things a little easier! It’s a very popular destination and we were actually stuck in a traffic jam when trying to leave – go early to avoid the crowds.
