Wicklow Mountain National Park

Wicklow Mountain National ParkWicklow Mountains National Park is an invaluable recreational space, with over one million visitors per year, and a site for the conservation of local biodiversity and landscape. The Disability Act 2005 and the Department of Environment Heritage and Local Government’s Sectoral Plan clearly outline the legal obligations on the National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) to make buildings, information and services at Wicklow Mountains National Park (WMNP) accessible to all users.

To fulfil this commitment, the NPWS recognised that an access and signage audit is the first step to ensure access can be improved to make the Park more enjoyable and safer for everyone to use. The WMNP engaged O’Herlihy Access Consultancy, in collaboration with Fionnuala Rogerson Architects, to assist the Park in meeting its legal requirements, to benchmark accessibility and provide advice on how to develop an access strategy, policy and plan.
