You really feel close to nature going through this landscape. There have been a lot of films produced here, and you can feel the history passing. We were lucky and didn't have (too much) rain.

Eleven of us did the Glendalough Spinc Ridge walk on New Years day - four and half hours, mainly over railway sleepers which were treacherous with ice in many places! Great craic, spectacular views. It's a must-do when in the Glendalough area. Both lakes clearly visible from this walk. The railway sleepers are a subject of constant discussion- it's a... More

Fabulous views and walks. Suitable for all ages and those of lesser mobility! Get out and see what's on your doorstep before jetting off around the world !

This is perhaps the most beautiful place I have ever visited. The lakes are 'out of this world'. The entire area is so peaceful and almost like a 'fairyland'. It is a must-see site once in Ireland.

I went to the mountains in the beginning of December, it was cold but just absolutely beautiful! The grass was covered in white frost, the water was still and icey but the walk warmed me up and it was so worth it. Beautiful views (bit boring when it was just the track and bush) but still so still and tranquil.... More

The Wicklow Mountains National Park was gorgeous, even during late November. The drive was beautiful and at times nerve-wrecking. We drove with no one in sight for quite some time, before we got towards the top of the mountains where a lot of the hiking paths start. Once towards the top of the mountains, there are numerous places to pull... More

I went there on a Sunday morning with too many people around for my tastes, but the places is really magical and need to be visited in a weekday, maybe, when it's more quiet and lonely. Such a fascinating site to walk through. Despite the rain and the fog we found, it's been a very nice spot to view. The... More

Drove through the mountains and even though it was raining it was certainly worth the drive. Lots of crystal clear streams. Saw the main lakeside location for the filming of the Vikings series (see photo). Couldn't access as apparently on land owned by the Guinness family, so only saw from a distance. Worth the drive.
