We drove through the National Park via Sally Gap on our way to Glendalough and it was definitely worth it for the views! This drive was a highlight of our trip. Do not miss!

Beautiful nature, worth visiting, a good escape from the urban area when visiting Dublin. I was on a tour and unfortunately didn't have enough time to explore the area. Will definitely go back and maybe spend the night in a hotel nearby.

Rolling hills of heather, gorse, ferns and wild berries to snack on. Stunning lake to swim in. Walking or riding is rewarding and only minutes from Dublin! Short and long walks and wild camping permitted.

The Wicklow's are unreal. Take a tour, drive, bike, just get out there. It's so close to Dublin, if you are in the city it is worth every second it takes to get to the mountains. There are great hikes if you plan ahead.

Yes. The monastic site is located within the park. You have to walk there, not far. But, we’ll worth it. Experience history and read the names of those who are buried there on the tombstones.

Heathers in Laragh. Perfect position. Try the walking over the Sally Gap. A desolate beauty. Or alternatively, the Wicklow Way.
