We normally associate Dublin with pubs and touristy things. The mountains were wonderful. We drove (on the left side) through rolling hills on a narrow, bendy road. Great to see heather, swampy land, and other sights. drive slowly, Lots of bicyclists and hikers.

I went on a guided walking tour in the Wicklow hills. This area is very beautiful, and the was was lots of fun. The guide told us a lot about the history of the area, and the animals and plants. The Wiklow hills are lovely!

I've driven through this area on the way back from country trips in Ireland and it's always impressed with beautiful vistas. There are walking trails and people ride their bikes on the narrow roads through the hills. Rather pretty route if you can take it.
