We drove to Glendalough via Sally Gap to enjoy the scenic view, and scenic it was! The views on this drive was a highlight of our time in the area. My pictures are assorted views in the area. Do not miss this!

As it was raining, we chose to do the drive to Sally gap. A beautiful scenic drive, but sadly it was very wet and misty, but still enjoyed it. Certainly worth the drive and for walkers, lots of amazing areas to explore along the way.

I personally love the Sally Gap, its like driving on the moon, watch out for the sheep though as they roam freely, an amazing place, the landscape is fantastic, the roads are smallish and a bit like a roller coaster. There are other amazing places...More

If you have time--driving through Sally Gap is worth it. The views are beautiful. We took this route from Wicklow on our way to Kilkenney.

Absolutely stunning views. The drive is a little tough with the narrow roads but totally worth the drive and the sheep really do just stand in the road.

There is a lovely view of the Wicklow Hills, although the driver of your car needs to watch the road, as sheep can jump out at any time, as well as road being narrow. Bring your camera and best take this drive on a dry...More

I agree with the answers below. It's around 30km from Clondalkin. This may be stating the obvious, but just to mention, it's really at it's best on a day with good visibility & you won't have a worthwhile experience if you... More
