Great place to escape the city with plenty of activities to find and do like mountain bike trails, horse riding, hiking, activity courses, paintballing, camping and lots more.

Always great for a roadrip so many things to do, and see up in the Dublin mountains. Great restaurants, views. When driving just be careful of sharp bendy road turns and lots of cyclists too.

Its a great place to be on a frosty December morning. If the sky is clear you can see Snowdonia in Wales with its peaks full of snow. Wrap up well and be prepared weather can change so fast up here.

The Dublin Mountains are very close to Dublin City, thankfully. A bus ride from the city centre will take you very close to the Dublin Mountains, eg the number 15 bus from City Centre will take you very close to Massey’s Estate, a wonderful wood...More

Visited here just after arriving from the States. I cannot say enough about how beautiful and serene this location is just outside the city. It's a must see.

Whether you go for a picnic a pub lunch a drive or a walk it doesn't matter. What does matter is that you do go........and enjoy! Easy access. Relatively safe. Be sensible......enjoy and be respectful of the flora and fauna.
