The Western Way South (Ordnance Survey Ireland Guides To The Way Marked Trails)
These trails are a combination of small country roads, forest roads (called green roads) and singletrack trail, and are marked by signposts featuring the yellow walking man. While these trails do not go over the mountain tops, they pass through very beautiful areas. Prominent among these trails in western Ireland are the Kerry Way in County Kerry and the Western Way in County Mayo. The best known waymarked trail is the Wicklow Way, which heads south from Dublin and provides the venue for a very popular IMRA-organized relay that covers 120 kilometers in mid-June.
