10 Questions About…


Climbing Sugar Loaf by Ann Treacy

Monday we all went to Sugar Loaf – well the O’Donnells hailing from Florida, Australia, and Minnesota climbed the Great Sugar Loaf. It was cold and windy – but we were very tough. The view from the top is amazing. (OK I didn’t quite get to the top as I waiting with Lily and a sleeping Aine near the top) but even what we could see was amazing.

Sugar Loaf is in Wicklow – about 10 miles from Cabinteely so about 20 miles from the City Centre. But from the top of Sugar Loaf you can see clear to Howth – which is the other side of the city.

The pictures kind of speak for themselves – but I thought I’d use the trip as an excuse to try to show some maps of County Dublin to give you guys an idea of our stomping ground:

Here’s a quick map of Dublin (http://www.countydublin.com/dublin_map.htm). We live inland from Killiney. We often go to Dun Laoghaire. Howth is where we saw the Seals. The Sugar Loaf is in Wicklow- which as you can see if sort of off the map. The Powerscourt Ritz Carleton overlooks the Sugar Loaf. (I’ll try to add a picture of the hotel from the mountain if it turned out.)

Here is a quick map of Wicklow (http://www.irishtourist.com/wicklow/maps/road_map/). I don’t find it to be as useful – but there you have it.
