Passed twice through Sally gap on a round tour. Also Lough Tay where in 2013 the history series The Vikings was filmed, you can still see the jetty and site... More

We took the 9 km trail (white arrows) that goes around the lake. If you go clockwise, it is really steep uphill in the beginning and more gradual coming down. The total climb goes all the way up and over the mountains. And the descent is over uneven rocks. So I would only recommend this trail to someone in relatively... More

I'm not sure why this place is not advertised as a top attraction of Ireland, especially given it's proximity to Dublin! If you're staying in Dublin for a few days, do yourself a favour and, as soon as the sky is clear, go to Wicklow National Park. I would suggest renting a car (as we did) but even if you... More

The hills are full of flowers and trees, you might be able to see different wild animals like deer, fox, owl, rabbit around here. It's a long walk if you... More

Went on a 7 km. hike near the upper lake at Glendalough Nature Reserve. It was cloudy and windy but didn't stop us from having a great time. It's such a beautiful setting that you'll enjoy it regardless of the weather conditions. You can choose between different hikes depending on your fitness level and time schedule.

Wicklow is a short ride by car or train from Dublin heading into the mountains. The ride there is beautiful with rural Ireland spreading before you complete with sheep, thatch roof and stone cottages and houses and more green than I've ever seen in one place. Glendalough is a historic site in the Wicklow Mtns. national park. Go there!!! It... More
