GOURMET HIKES (Guided)

 

For some of you, the hiking part is merely a prelude to the picnic part (you know who you are!).   And for that reason, we’ve included a Guided Gourmet Hike on our menu of outdoors offerings.  Essentially, the Gourmet Hike is a Day Hike with an extra special picnic at the halfway point.  Mouthwatering edibles will include;

  • Selection of freshly baked local breads

  • Wicklow cheeses, salads, meats & homemade chutneys

  • Organic Summer Berry Tart & Cream

  • Selection of homemade Cordials (Elderberry, Raspberry, Strawberry)

 

Our Gourmet Hike will begin at 10am in Enniskerry Village with wake-up coffee and pastries at the Kingfisher Cafe.  We will then take you to the nearby starting point for a 3 to 4 hour hike in the Wicklow Mountains.  The exact trail will be decided on the day, depending on weather and fitness levels of the group.
