We used wild Wicklow tours, a must and you have to have John as your driver and guide. The landscape is changing consistently, just remarkable

We've been to the Dublin Mountains several times. It is a great place to take a break away from the city and go for a drive through this wonderfully natural wild landscape, only about half an hour from Dublin city centre by car. You get great views over Dublin city, the Irish Sea, and on most good days, even a... More

I went on a spur of the moment decision to do a badly planned hike. After a misty start the weather cleared to offer a majestic view of the Dublin skyline. It was spectacular. As the day wore on I was fascinated to see how the mood of the landscape changed with the changing lighting conditions. Next time I do... More

I have been down to the mountains a few times, it is a lovely place to go an see. It's a nice day out if you enjoy being outdoors. Rain or sunshine I would recommend this for anyone who likes walking, or just enjoys being outside.

We visited the Dublin mountains after seeing some reviews on trip advisor. Thanks to the reviews we hired a car from Dublin city and drove and parked at the Ticknock forest mountain bike hire car park on Ticknock Road. We then followed the green walking path signs for a 5.5km walking loop called the Fairy Castle loop. The views and... More

If you ever land on Irish soil.. Visit Wicklow mountains. Glendalough, Sally gap, Powerscourt gardens and many more places to choose from. Breathtaking area, panoramic views and relaxing walks for your body and soul.

The Dublin and Wicklow Hills are a unique resource and Dublin is blessed with having a wilderness on its doorstep. If you are a visitor have a limited time and want a spectacular view of Dublin you would be hard put to beat the view from Three Rock Mountain. It is easy to get to as it is literally at... More

As a local, going for a drive in the mountains is one of my favorite things to do in Dublin. There's plenty of places to hike, lots of trails and walks. I always enjoy driving up the Miliatry Road, across the mountains to Glendalough. It has some world class views, and anyone I take on that journey has always loved... More

The nicest parts are really in Wicklow - Sally Gap, Guinness lake, then onto Glendalough. Recently visited the Hellfire club area too and whilst it is nice it has a bit of a scumbag undertone to if if that makes sense!! It was later in the day when we visited though. Johnny foxes pub is an absolute must visit, the... More
