What Oldbridge lacks by way of village services is more than compensated for by it’s strategic position on the Wicklow Way and its offering of two magnificent accommodation options, one right on the route and the other in a location which more than makes up for the extra couple of “off-trail” kilometres needed to reach it, less than would otherwise be involved in reaching Roundwood Village.
