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

I didn't use any of the tour groups, we had a private driver, but this was an absolutely beautiful trip. I highly recommend a day trip to visit the area and see it.

If you have the time and you aren't far away I would definitely recommend a visit to this national park. It'd be a nice change of scenery from Dublin city centre. I've been to the majority of national parks in Ireland this wasn't my favourite but I still enjoyed it. It's quite touristy and it's difficult to get a parking... More

I was advised that this was a must visit....sorry, a waste of time IF.....and I repeat, IF... You have visited British highlands before. There was nothing spectacular about this place. Fortunately the road to a village was closed due to a collapsed bridge which meant we were forced to ask directions on various tiny roads and lanes to get into... More

I went to visit this park to get some fresh air and enjoy the scenery on March 8th 2015. There is a lake and a waterfall in some distance. Both are nice to view. Very relaxing. I could see a lot of people hiking. I went there with my Niece 4 yr old, she was very happy to see the... More

On the 21st of December, I decided to spend an extra night in Dublin and go and visit the Wicklow Mountains the next day. It had been one of those beauties of Ireland i'd always wanted to see, and with the minimum of time I had while there, it was a toss up between that and seeing Cork. My arm... More

If you only have a small amount of time in Ireland or Dublin make sure to head out to Glendalough and the Wicklow Mountains. It is absolutely stunning scenery (out of The Vikings!) and easily accessed. It may be your only glimpse of countryside while you're here and it will not disappoint. Some of the walks can be quite rough... More

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
