We'll be climbing at Killiney hill, near the historic and cultural village of Dalkey. Killiney hill is one of the highest points around Dublin city, and gives breath taking views across the city and out towards the Dublin and Wicklow Mountains. We'll be surrounded by woodland and diverse habitats,, immersed in nature. Yet we will only be a short walk away from Dalkey village, and connecting buses and trains.
Climbing/walking boots are ideal, but runners are just as good. Clothes you are comfortable moving about and climnbing in, and a rain jacket just in case!
Bring some snacks to keep you energized, a warm jumper and a jacket just in case the sea breeze kicks up! And if the sun is shining, sun cream and plenty of water to keep you hydrated.
