Have never been to this part of Ireland and was amazed how different it is to the west coast but offering such an amazing contrast. Some parts like the Scottish Highlands some like Bavaria!

We started walking the Wicklow Way from Marlay park to Enniskerry. A long walk, 25k and challenging, 2 climbs up to 1600ft but worth it for the great views of Dublin and the bay. Mostly the Wicklow Way is well signposted, but we did have...More

We walked around the lake and up the hill on the grey trail. We had wonderful weather but this walk (5 km) would be great in any weather. Well worth going there, beautiful countryside and views. Reminiscent of the Alps.

Our day to travel to enjoy the beautiful scenery of Wicklow, Ireland was rainy and gusty. The scenery was not harmed by the rain, however. Winding up and down, around and through the forests and meadows was quite a treat.

Slow but amazingly pretty drive, as an alternative to using the highways to get to Dublin. There are a lot of curves, and first time drivers from the US should be careful and note that at times it can be very narrow and curvy.
