Took a Paddywagon tour out to the Wicklow mountains, spectacular scenery, especially with the Yellow Gorse out. Recommend

The Dublin Mountains are amazing. Windy narrow roads, hills covered in heather, random sheep walking in the road, and hidden lakes make it a magical trip on a foggy/rainy day.

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.
