Hang Gliding & Paragliding

Wicklow Mountain National Park offers excellent opportunities for para and hang gliding. Both activities are only allowed under permit from the National Park.

Restrictions may be placed on certain sites during the bird nesting season (1st March – 31st August) to prevent disturbance, primarily to peregrine falcon, one of the species for which the Wicklow Mountains Special Protection Area of Birds (SPA) is designated.

Any violation of these restrictions may lead to prosecution.

The National Park Rangers communicate with the Irish Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association (IHPA) to update their members on restricted areas and lifting of area bans
