Very steep ride on bikes, but beautiful countryside. Would do again my car. Was worth the challenge on bike.

WE took a lot of back roads thru Ireland and enjoyed the scenery very much and our bus stopped several times at key photo stops to let us take photos.

This is the Ireland you miss with staying in the big cites, you can feel the history, like stepping back 100 years into realm far removed from the cosmopolitan existence.

I liked these better than Killarney. Dublin has better pubs with music that allow tween/teens - for family events.

I regularly have walks, up to 3 hours, on the hills above Rathfarnham - excellent tracks & trails and fresh air.

We drove through the Dublin mountains on our way to visit Dun Leoghaire and whilst there has been a lot of new building in the past years it is a very scenic drive

The Wicklow mountains are well worth the visit, Very pretty to see and so much different then the US. The old monastery is also worth seeing.
