The Dublin or Wicklow mountains in Glendalough is a MUST DO. This is the true green rolling hills countryside of Ireland. It is a lush beautiful magical terrain with monasteries, Irish Saints and history

Really great to view. We went up by the Sally Gap and the views of some of the lakes are stunning as are the peat bogs. Watch out for the sheep on the road!

Visited Ticknock (or Thigh An Chnoic in Irish) and treated the kids and the dog to an afternoon of beautiful walks and great views of Dublin. Parking requires patience on busy days but there's always a space. Love it.

A short distance from the City Centre and you can spend a relaxing time walking up the mountain. Public Transport is avalible, so you have no excuse not to go.
