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.

amazing views and scenery. Easily accessible to get to several starting points. Would recommend a good trekking book to learn the best routes.

If you ever land on Irish soil.. Visit Wicklow mountains. Glendalough, Sally gap, Powerscourt gardens and many more places to choose from. Breathtaking area, panoramic views and relaxing walks for your body and soul.
