Wicklow is such a wonderful place. We had a beautiful sunny day when we visited. From Dublin we drove to Glendalough first and had a walk around the monastic site and the lakes there. There were so many lovely spots, especially in sun light. After our visit in Glendalough we drove through the Wicklow Mountains on the Military Road and... More

When we left Dublin on-route to Kilkenny, we took the scenic route through the Wicklow Mountains via Sally Gap. There were cyclist along the roads which are very narrow and rough so extra care is needed for this journey. However it's worth doing if you have the time.

Great place to visit and enjoy the beautiful scenery of Ireland. Only 30 minutes from Dublin. If you are not driving, strongly recommend a tour as it is difficult to get back to the city.

Headed off walking on a cold clear ( typical summer ) day through the wicklow mountains. Such beautiful countryside with varying landscapes.. From roads, paths, Bog and stream... My favourite part is turlough hill, the lakes and the Wicklow gap...

Though it had been raining in the morning we lucked out and it was a sunny clear day by the time we reach the mountains in the early afternoon. We first stopped at Loch Tay and did a short hike up the mountain. This was lovely. From there we drove the military road to the visitor's center at Glendalough where... More

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lokHmiJ6--g The YouTube link above will give you a very accurate feel of what we experienced when we visited Glendalough and the Wicklow Mountains To me this area and this day outing was massively serene and peaceful. You have to come here in June or July so you can experience the beauty I observed I would go here a hundred... More

The Wicklow Mtns were magnificent with peat bogs fields, the PS I Love You bridge, and the Guinness Lake where 'Vikings' is filmed.

It would probably take me weeks to get to see half of what this huge National Park has to offer, but its Natural scenery, chance to observe plenty of beautiful animals, and historical sites makes it an absolutely must visit spot.

Amazing scenery. Lots of walking routes for every level. Areas to rock climb aswell. Glendalough is located here which is great for wildlife like goats and deer. Camping is not allowed in the area of Glendalough but there is a hostel nearby.

This is one of the best places I've been too. It is absolutely magical. If you ever visit Ireland (which you should) you have to take a day-trip to Wicklow Mountains. You'll get the most gorgeous views and just this wonderful feeling of Ireland that I don't think you could get anywhere else. The air is so fresh and my... More
