A bus will drop us to Ballinagee Bridge, where we will begin our walk. It will take about 2-3 hours and is approx. 12km. Anyone who would like a shorter walk can take St. Kevin´s Road from the monastic city of Glendalough and meet the group along the way, to arrive together beside the Round Tower for our closing ceremony at around 2pm. A contribution of €5 per person for the bus to the starting point. (or feel free to arrange your own transport if you would prefer).
