The Dublin Mountains are relatively easy to access from the city and well worth the effort as the nature and views are stunning. There are several signposted walks which can suit all abilities.

The Dublin mountains offer some fantastic hikes and breathtaking views. On a clear day you can see the coast of Wales as well as the view of Dublin city.

On your way to Johnny Foxes stop and admire the views as your are driving. If you are coming home at night it is spectacular.
