Must See (and yes, everyone know it's hills)

There is something magnificent about Dublin/Wicklow mountains. So free from everything, there is no city noise, no cars. It's like wild minutes away from the city.

These hills so close to the City of Dublin are very accessible and have many way-marked walks through forests and to the hill tops where there are tremendous views over the City and Dublin Bay.

We took a tour bus to Wicklow Mountains, best way to enjoy the scenery. Main stop was Glendalough with its ancient ruins. Along the way we stopped for stunning views. recommend getting out of the city for the real look at Irish beauty. Our bus stopped for lunch in a quaint village. I enjoyed Irish stew on a cold day.

Beautiful. After a night on the tiles in the city, we left the car at the free parking at Ticknock Woods and ascended the slopes to Fairy Castle, the highest point of the Dublin Mountains. A fairly easy climb lasting 1-2 hours, suitable for kids, was rewarded by fantastic views over the town and surrounding countryside. Lots of walking trails... More

Dublin is blessed with these magnificent mountains (not really mountains more like hills) so close to the city. Truly spectacular views of the city and across Dublin bay. They say on a clear day you can see Wales. The highest spot in Dublin is Kippure mountain 750m high and there is a road (closed to cars) all the way to... More

If you can get to the Dublin Mountains, go there, especially if you have a rental car, or are a keen cyclist of hiker. My favorite is to go from Rathfarnham up to Sally Gap and cross to Djouce Mountain and into Roundwood where you can have a good pint. You will see spectacular views and if you are lucky... More

The great thing about Dublin Mountains is that there are several walks and trails suitable for all. If you want a simple stroll in the woods or something a bit more challenging, they are all there. Only complaint is that sometimes the early walker has to park on the roadside as the car-parks are not always open. As always, bring... More
