Head Southbound on the M50 > Merge onto M11 > Continue on to N11 to Kilmacanoge (exit for Roundwood)
From Roundwood follow R755 to Annamoe and Larragh
Entering Larragh, take a left at Lyman’s Pub, following R755 (signposted Rathdrum)
After about 1.5km, keep an eye out for a right hand turn to Aghavannagh
Entering Glenmalure (Beside Glenmalure Lodge Hotel) take an immediate right at crossroads
Follow road for 6km until the road crosses a river – if you are not comfortable crossing the river in your car, you can leave the Scouts there to walk the rest of the way. We will not know how badly the bridge will be affected by the river until we reach it tomorrow (all depends on our lovely irish weather) but the walk is no more than 10 mins up the road.
If you do cross the river – follow the road, the hostel is 0.5km on the right hand side (the only house in the area)
If you are using a GPS Device enter “Baravore Co. Wicklow” and this will get you to the point just before the river or else these are the exact co-ordinates for the hostel:
N 52° 59.402`
Please print these directions out if you are collecting the scouts on Sunday at 12.
