I only knew I was in Wicklow Mountains National Park because it showed up on the map. There were no entrance signs or any other types of information or interpretation provided. The scenery is wonderful and the road was in good condition although it was narrow. Beware of bicyclists.

The Wicklow National Park is a walkers paradise. It stretches across huge tracts of the Wicklow hills with hundreds of kilometres of trails done well marked others not marked at all. Those that are not marked and which are cross country require some navigation skills and can be arduous. However around Glendalough which has centuries and layers of history there... More

If you plan to visit Ireland, you should plan to include the Wicklow Mountains. It isn't too far from Dublin and could be done as a day trip or could be on the route as you drive west across the country. While in the area, you will be sure to visit the Glendalough ruins and the surrounding area of mountains... More

If you just want a short and easy walk, go around the lower lake. The boardwalk is easy to navigate and has some very nice views.

Really great view, despite the short time from Dublin. You can buy the map for 50 cents at the visitor information centre. I tried the orange and white trail, both offer magnificent view, but I like the white trail better. Because I was completely tired to do both on one day, I regret that I didnt spend longer time there... More

Awesome day! I couldn't have asked for a more photogenic place and walking along the lake was very peaceful and relaxing.

Beautiful glens, clear loughs and rolling hills combine to create a lovely wilderness close to the city. Very popular though at summer weekends!
