Makes you come to realisation as to how incredible Ireland is as a country. The diversity of colours, the scenery, the beauty of nature. A place well worth the visit. Trails suitable for walking, running and biking. Glendalough Upper Lake is so peaceful and adds to the awe-inspiring experience of the place. Despite it being Winter time when visited and... More

My daughter and I spent a day in the Wicklow Mountains. It was the best tour of our 11 days in Ireland. The mountains are beautiful and mystic.

This was the most amazing, secluded place. Hills, valleys, water, just wonderful. The springtime is probably mind blowing.

Great hike for any day, a number of trails, most of them are quite difficult. For food, bring your own or try Heather restaurant in Laragh.

Great paths and signs make this a lovely place to take the kids into some lovely Irish scenery. The boardwalk is particularly good.

Went with the wife as a part of a tour for the day. We spent time there walking and taking photos through the woods and around hills. I enjoyed the sites like I enjoy walking in NYC parks- there were people there in their workout gear and it seemed like a place many go for their walks.

We drove through Wicklow Mountains National Park from Glendalough to Dublin. The countryside is absolutely stunning, and different than other areas of the country. I'd love to return when the heather is in full bloom!

We drove through this park when first leaving Dublin on a road trip and then went out of our way to return to it when getting back to Dublin at the end of our trip. The views are absolutely stunning and the sheep are good for a laugh. There are hiking trails to be found, unfortunately we didn't have time... More

We took a tour bus from Dublin up through the countryside to Glendalough (Glenn of Two Lakes). Lake Guinness was very pretty and the high view afforded everyone a great look. Glendalough offers amazing views, walking trails, cemeteries and more.
