Walking Both sides of the Irish Sea
Anglesey, North Wales, is quite often referred to as the Island of Romance and Wicklow as the Garden of Ireland. Put these two together and you have one amazing tour. Anglesey Walking Holidays have joined up with their friends at Footfalls, Ireland, who will take care of you over on the Green Isle. There is a strong link between both areas which are easily accessible by ferries crossing the Irish Sea.
Isle of Anglesey
Anglesey is rich in mystifying history, standing stones, burial chambers, hill forts and exhilirating views over to Snowdonia and the Llŷn Peninsula. The island has a 128 mile Coastal Path, now part of the Wales Coast Path, consisting of cliffs, dunes and long sandy beaches that are a natural habitat to a variety of wildlife, flora and fauna, all waiting to be admired and enjoyed. 90% of the path is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Wicklow deservingly gains the title “Garden of Ireland”, and offers its visitors everything from a wild and scenic mountain landscape, made up of domed heather clad mountains, to deep wooded glens, meandering streams, waterfalls and tranquil lakes. One of the Wicklow Way’s finest jewels is Glendalough, situated in the centre of the county, and home to one of the finest Monastic Ruined Cities that you will find anywhere in Europe. The settlement was originally founded by St. Kevin who is said to have built his first church on the west coast ofAnglesey near Aberffraw (Eglwys Cwyfan Church), before moving to Glendalough. Hence the Anglesey link!
