Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Wonderful experience if you like nature! Long, beautiful path, great weather! The only problem was the strong wind from time to time.

When in Dublin you must take time out from the usual attractions and climb to the highest point overlooking Dublin bay. it really does blow away the cobwebs and the sights are stunning.

Brilliant views looking North over Dublin, walking through valleys/glens with every changing scenery. East looking out over Dublin Bay and the coast. South and West over more hills and glens.
Following forest paths and way-marked routes in open country.
In open country away well-used paths in winter, spring and autumn the higher ground can be boggy, very damp marshland. In the high summer, heather can be ankle and knee deep which can be frustrating the walk in over a long period time.

West Wicklow: Dublin Bus no. 65 to Blessington (rare) small town on N81 road.
Arrives at Blessington Lakes (man-made resevoir to serve Dublin). It's an alternate route to walk into the mountains.
The Dublin Bus 65 and limited services further south to Ballyknockan village off the N81 road.

Dublin Mountains Way: 43km from Shankill to Tallaght (or reverse)
From Tallaght only Glenasmole resevoir walk ( maybe 2km) offers any green road walking before and after there are about 12 kilometres of walking through housing estates or country roads (can be exposed to walkers).

Safety: The altitudes are comparitivly small, but the area is isolated if any member of the group runs into diffiulty. Wear appropiate clothing and footwear,

Visited Ticknock on Easter Sunday for first time in a few years. What stood out from the outset was the huge amount of cars all seeking out the minimal amount of parking. Add in hundreds of mountain bikers and a couple of thousand walkers and it made for a very crowded amenity. Is it sustainable? That remains to be seen. The views are glorious. There is a general effort to keep the place clean however the usual suspects let the side down.... dog poo and coffee cups. Why some people go to the trouble of using a doggy bag to pick up the poo and then throw the bag on the ground is beyond me. A complete lack of bins is also evident. Theres no escaping the fact that the Dublin Mountains, Ticknock included, is now a huge visitor attraction especially during the Covid pandemic. It needs to be properly and carefully managed to ensure it remains as unspoilt as possible and hopefully it doesn't just turn into a commercial cash cow for the chosen few. If crowds aren't your thing & its a quiet walk you are after, either early morning or late evening are the best times to avoid the masses.

Great place to keep healthy and exercise. As the weather improves it is a super place to picnic. The views of Dublin city and bay are amazing.

We started from the Tibradden Wood trail - in the forest entrance to meet the Wicklow Way.
We parked at the bottom of the trail and walked past the zip line.
This is a beautiful hike with lovely changing scenery.
The views are spectacular.
I would say this is a gentle hike but be prepared for a few elevations and steps over rocks.
The mountain bikers also use this trail.
Keep an eye out for wildlife. We saw rabbit and birds.
The trail is well kept.

Great to do if you have a car, various beautiful drives, take a trip to Enniskerry via the mountains for a lovely half day, maybe stop for a drink in some of the famous mountain pubs

Even when it rains, the Dublin Mountains are beautiful. On a sunny clear day the views are breathtaking. You can "feel" Ireland when you are up there.

Went here on our 1-week motorbike touring holiday perfect day out with stunning scenery and views. We timed the visit perfectly as we had some really good weather and clear views, plenty of places to stop off and have a coffee and cake.The only thing we didnt like about Dublin was the prices of everything, very expensive.
