Base 1: Glendalough, County Wicklow is world-renowned for its historical sites and is an area of outstanding natural beauty. There are nearby preserved early medieval monastic settlements, founded in the 6th century by St Kevin. The local scenery is unrivalled, with mountains, rivers and waterfalls surrounding the magnificent Glendalough lake.
Base 2: The Ballyhoura Mountains are located in south-east Limerick in the heart of the historic province of Munster. The area is famous for its walking and running trails where you can view stunning panoramas and mountain vistas. Lots of great photo opportunities with castle ruins, wide open lakes and meandering rivers in this unique location.
