“Great day out ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

Take the 145 bus from town or m50 car but I suggest the car if u can walk up from the car park at the back of the hill will only take 1hr, Bit of loose ground near the top a bit of climbing over rocks has to be done well worth the view and some great photos :)

“See the real Ireland on Dublins doorstep”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

This is a short hike that takes 25-30 minutes up and the same time down. Take in views of south dublin and north wicklow. Just 20 minute drive south of Dublin. Worth a trip

“Mt. Fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

We climbed during one of the really days in July and it was absolutely fantastic! One thing to note though: if you're taking the bus from the city center then you have a looooong walk ahead of you before you can start the climb. We were heading for the carpark but it is very far and thankfully we met a local who pointed us up another, tougher route but it was worth it. Lovely views when you get to the top! Only thing is definitely bring a car, especially if you are taking kids. Great fun all round!

“Love it - great climb!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

there's a fair bit of litter strewn around near where you park your car and I wouldn't leave anything of value in sight - all that aside I LOVE the Sugarloaf. It's a great stretch of the legs and the views are second to none.
