Our first hike in Ireland set a high bar. We rode the train from our stop in Sandymount to Bray, a small coastal village in County Wicklow, where we were able to walk to the head of a trail that led us south to another village called Greystones. The trail hugged the coastline between the two villages, taking us through rugged, beautiful scenery with ocean views. Finding the train station in Greystones wasn’t easy, so we whipped out our phones with our new Irish data plans and used Google Maps to show us, and about 30 German school children with a lone parent chaperone that were also lost, the way there. If this is even a small taste of what Ireland has to offer in terms of hiking, we’re going to feel right at home.
