We will start at Kilranelagh graveyard which is the second oldest graveyard in Ireland. There we will visit the hero of the Irish rebels, Sam Mac Allister’s grave; as well as the mysterious Gates of Heaven; and St Brigid’s holy well where we will drink of her healing waters.

We will also visit:
Boleycarrigeen stone circle

St Brigid’s chair and headstone - cure for headaches and backpain
A secret hidden Cairn

From Kilranelagh we will take in the views of Baltinglass hill's pinnacle with its megalithic tomb; Keadeen’s huge hill figures and Cursus; and Brusslestown ring - one of the largest hill forts in Europe.
The fascinating stories associated with each place will transport you to another time and place.

These sites are not easily accessed without guidance, they are hidden gems, untouched and wild, not to be missed.

I live near Kilranelagh hill, and over the years, through talking to locals and exploring the hill, I discovered that this small hill is packed full of interesting monuments.
While training on a Track and Trail Lowland Leader course in Baltinglass I saw the potential to develop tourism in the area. I started researching and discovered many more interesting things about Kilranelagh and its surrounds - including captivating legends. I have always had a fascination with history and legends, and together with a love of hill walking, Kilranelagh seemed to be the perfect place to combine the two. This encouraged me to set up a walking tour. I received permission from the landowners to do so and have been bringing people on walks ever since. Many of the ancient sites are hidden in the forest, but after much exploration, I can bring you to them.

방문 장소

Kilranelagh is a privately owned hill near Baltinglass in the foothills of the beautiful West Wicklow mountains. This area contains the greatest concentration of prehistoric hillforts in Europe and Kilranelagh is jam packed with ancient sites. We have obtained exclusive permission to run tours on the hill. The ancient historical sites are hard to find, tucked away in the beautiful forests on the hill. We will guide you to these hidden treasures.

A wonderful experience. Nicky led us through a magical landscape featuring an incredible intensity of ancient and not so ancient sites featuring stone circles, ogham stones, amazing raths, burial grounds, religious and spiritual sites, holy wells all in a beautiful forest landscape. Nicky was knowledgeable on local folklore, myths and legends an put the archaeological sites in context in a wonderfully engaging way. Highly recommended.
