The Wicklow Mountains are not as well known as the Ring of Kerry. That does not mean they should take second place. The drive in and around Sally Gap is simply stunning and I never tire of the drive or taking pictures of the landscape....More
We enjoyed the scenic drive through the Wicklow Gap during our tour by Collins Day Tours, beautiful Irish countryside! It is located close to Dublin (~40km).
We just stopped at the Wicklow Gap for a photo from afar, unfortunately there was no time to take...More
Sally's gap is a location I often visit to relax and take in the beauty of nature.
Highly recommended for visitors to Ireland, Sally's Gap is a short trip from Dublin, the breath taking views are simply stunning!
We drove through the Sally Gap on a warm sunny October day and it was spectacular! Be prepared for narrow twisty roads and wandering sheep! The highlight of the trip was Lough Tay, it’s a great spot to stop and take photos.
Honestly, during 10 beautiful and wondrous days driving around Ireland, one of the standout moments was driving up the R759 from near Roundwood to the Sally Gap. The mountain road is beautiful -- and slightly narrow -- but the view up toward the top, down...More
We spent a day trip from Dublin driving down to Glendalough and Wicklow. Many beautiful views along the way and especially in Sally Gap. It’s a long, narrow and winding road through beautiful scenery. We stopped many times to take pictures, even some with the...More

The road surface is a bit uneven, and bumpy in places, although regularly maintained, there are problems associated with flooding and freezing temperature in places on the road from Sallygap to Laragh and Glendalough, the route from Blessington to Roundwood is OK, and the route back to Dublin is also bumpy, with some potholes to negotiate. Best time to drive is between 11:00 am and 3:30 pm, ( Monday to Friday ) there is little traffic on the road at this time and one can enjoy the scenery. Weekends are busy as are rush hour periods as the road is used as a "rat run" to avoid congestion on the main routes. Allow yourself plenty of time, but be wary of other drivers who may be in a hurry to get somewhere. Warning, do not leave valuables or personal belongings on view in the car, best advise is to park where you can see it, and do not leave it unattended for long spells of time as sadly, opportunistic thieves do drive up here regularly, and many tourists have lost valuables and cars have been damaged.
