Devil’s Glen, near Ashford in County Wicklow, gives you the feeling of being in the middle of an enchanted forest, the noise of the waterfall in this dramatic gorge adding to the sentiment. The 5km loop walk is doable for anyone with moderate fitness and will take around two hours or so to complete. There are some steep downhill sections though, making it unsuitable for buggies and it is often muddy. Look out for the forest sculptures on your way round. A good hike for families with children, dogs are allowed, if kept on a lead. Parking is along a forest track about 2km from the entrance to Devil’s Glen Forest and the walks start about 100m from the parking.
