Our second day in Ireland was around the Wicklow Mountains. Started off by the visitor centre we walked to the churches and the round tower. It's an old cemetery with some ruins, looks nice. We continued to the lower lake and the upper lake after. The upper lake and the mountains around it looked absolutely beautiful. I want to go... More

Glendalough never disappoints me - no matter what time of year you go, the sceneries are always lovely. You can easily spend a day waking around there but it's also a nice place for a short visit. There is plenty of parking and its close to the lake. If you decide to go for a walk, bring your camera with... More

We were staying in Dublin for a week but wanted to take a one day hike outside the city and into nature. The Wicklow mountains were perfect. Not that difficult of a walk and unexpectedly beautiful. We couldn't believe we were only an hour outside Dublin. A must do!

Beautiful mountain range. Picture postcard views. Great driving road. Typical Irish countryside. Go via Sally Gap for great views.

Hi all, There`s another gem of a car or bus or bike (if your fit) journey to Glendaloch, Co. Wicklow., with its fabulous Round Tower and St. Kevins bed, the refuge of the saint who made Glendaloch what it is. I always start my journey from Dublin, cos I live there. However, if you travel on the St Kevins bus... More

Wicklow Mountains National Park offers over 50,000 acres of rugged, natural beauty located just outside of Dublin. The military road driving route is a quick introduction to rural Ireland for any first-time visitor to Dublin.

We drove through several of the roads for the park including over Wicklow pass and Sally Pass - it was a mostly clear day. The views were beautiful. Road is fairly narrow through out but when we went there were almost no other travelers. Highly recommend the drive.

You can go all the way up to the top of the valley and look down at the beautiful Glendalough lakes all in a row, then either turn off and go hiking the Wicklow mountains or else loop back down and go back along the other side of the lakes to have a look at them from the other side.... More
