Just a short drive south of Dublin, every curve in the Wicklow Mountains provides another beautiful view. Incredible to see the Irish Sea from the mountains.

Visited this national park looking to walk for the day! There are endless routes to take and some fanstastic pieces of art and ruins! There are stepping stones across the river and You can even get an ice Cream along the way!

Arrived with a bus load of 20 people. They charged €25 to get in but the attendants collecting the money were anything but friendly. Very bad first impression for foreign visitors. Glendalough itself was lovely to see but a guided tour of the monastic settlement would have been helpful.

The Wicklow Mountains.. I have walked here for over 40 years and have camped here when I was a kid studied it in university and have been on each and every peak and in every valley and it still delights me and surprises me with things I have not seen before. It's diversity is staggering and it is possible to... More

It's hard to describe the beauty of this place. It is must see. You need a whole day to explore this place. I took a tour and even though I'm not a fan of organized excursions this one I enjoyed so very much. If you want to understand and feel the beauty of Ireland that is one of the places... More

Wicklow Mountains National Park (Glendalough) is a very easy to access park. In few hours we did both the Miner's road and the green road which are both lovely and very easy. The upper lake views are spectacular! Parking is possible both next to the lower and upper lake - 4 euro per car Tip: if you're coming from Dublin,... More

The title says it all really. Forget Glendalough, it gets too busy, there are numerous walks all over Wicklow mountains for you to take with hardly a soul to be seen and only the sounds of river flowing, wind blowing and birds singing. Whether its a sunny day or a cold day, makes no difference, the scenery will still take... More

My friend and I took a half day tour to Wicklow and Glandalough (with Paddywagon tours.... highly recommend them!). Just a short drive away from Dublin, you can begin to see the 40 different shades of green as you begin to approach the park. Gorgeous views of rolling hills, sheep, and lakes. When we could see the upper lake from... More
