Glencullen Cycle Loop Directions


Section 1

0 to 10km

Take the turn by The Yellow House pub and climb slowly uphill. After 1.8km go straight through a roundabout and ignore the right turn soon after – keep straight. You will pass under the M50 motorway. Keep climbing and after you pass The Merry Ploughboy pub there is a short descent [5km marker] before the hardest part of the climb lasting 1.5km.

Once you cross a stone bridge, there is a left turn with a sign for Glencullen.

You continue uphill after turning left. Soon you reach the top and there is a brief descent before the road flattens. Stay on it.


Section 2

10 – 20km

You reach Glencullen at the first crossroads. This route turns left, up the hill here, but Johnny Fox’s is at the crossroads.

Go up the hill from Glencullen. On the descent, after a sharp right turn, take the immediate left turn going slightly uphill. It is easy to miss. This then brings you downhill to a t-junction with Blackglen Road.

Go left and continue downhill over the M50 to a crossroads. The main road curves right here but take the turnoff that goes straight ahead, where you will have a stone wall on your right as you cycle.


Section 3

20 – 25km

Take the next right and continue downhill. When you reach a roundabout, go right. Go through a crossroads and you will eventually come to a t-junction.

Take another right and after a few metres you are back where you started.
