We enjoyed a two/three-hour free guided Sunday walk in the Dublin Mountains with volunteer rangers and a group of local people. Highly recommended - booking is essential!

Breath taking does not describe the beauty and haunting history of the place. From the formation of the peet bogs to the Irish resistance to the fauna, it has to be a must see for any tourist

We had Dublin Mountains on our itinerary for a VERY rainy day. We took the hike anyway. The views are incredible and worth the work to get to the top.
