Be sure to take in the short film - it gives a good overview of the entire park. The facility staff did a great job of laying out a map of the area and the various walking trails. It made it very easy to decide which ones to do. All in all very, very nice!

Plan your trip from Dublin to Kilkenny to pass through the Wicklow Mountains National Park. We stopped at Powerscourt Gardens and Glendalough Monastery before crossing the Wicklow Mountains.

This is a wonderful and peaceful place. You can stay all the day because there s a lake next to Glendalough.

Having visited the settlement at Glendalough we drove back through the Wicklow Mountains. It was early evening and the sun illuminated these wild hills with a special light. From time to time there was a shower and a beautiful rainbow framing stunning waterfalls. Mile after mile and not a single sign of habitation. I could not believe it was so... More

I love the country side anyway and after going here I now know why Eire is known as the green isle, beautiful wide open spaces and green lush surroundings as far as you can see lots of ruins and waterfalls and forests....loved it!!

the driver Joe was very informative and during our ride he gave us a brief history of Ireland. he was very patient with all of us and it was his pride the folklore of Ireland even when he started singing Irish songs to us. worth all the money we paid for.

Although it was raining the views were beautiful. The view from Sally Gap was very good and included the lake and home owned by the Guiness family.
