Hellfire

See Dublin from above

The most iconic of the walks we feature, this route is for the adventurers or those with a curiosity for Dublin’s secret history.

The Hellfire Club sits atop Montpelier Hill, providing some spectacular views of Dublin City below. To get to the ruin you can either follow the wide track that spirals its way from the car park to the top, or if more adventurous, take the desire path straight up! It’s shorter, but will definitely get those lungs working. For more on the Hellfire Story see here.

If you still have the energy on your way back to the car park, consider crossing Killakee Road to visit Dublin’s Hidden Forest – Lord Massy’s Woods. This wooded area hosts a major forest road which winds its way around the wood and is called the Nature Trail. There are also many smaller tracks and shortcuts crossing the forest and all these paths lead to the main road. The walking paths are easy for walkers with the main forest road easily accessible for children and people with lower level of fitness.

It doesn’t matter which walk you take first, The Hellfire Club or Lord Massy’s or even if you take both of them in the same day, because whatever you choose, you can always stop for coffee and cake at the Country Store & Café at Timbertrove, which is located between both locations, or a pint with your food at the Merry Ploughboy a short drive away. Whatever you choose, we know you’ll come back.
