Drove through the mountains and even though it was raining it was certainly worth the drive. Lots of crystal clear streams. Saw the main lakeside location for the filming of the Vikings series (see photo). Couldn't access as apparently on land owned by the Guinness family, so only saw from a distance. Worth the drive.

Hired a car and had a wonderful time driving through Wicklow mountains. Gorgeous changes in scenery and excellent roads. Don't miss heading to Glendalough - the lakes are lovely and are well worth having a walk around. Picturesque and relaxing. Have been back twice already and no doubt will return.

We headed through the park to get to Glendalough Monastery. We enjoyed the park more than the Monastery. The colours were amazing. We stopped at a small parking area and went walking. Later I wished we had spent more time exploring the park and less at Glendalough.

Great day out for either driving about or walking- plenty of he villages about for lunch or coffee. Word of caution: Always bring a warm sweater or jacket as weather can change VERY quickly in the park

We went for a drive through this amazingly beautiful park. Driving is a bit of a challenge if you are used to wide roads but it was well worth it.

Driving through the Wicklow Mountains was a treat. We went in October and the weather was great for us. The scenery is stunning; the vegetation and different landscapes were so neat to see. From forest to farmland and tundra, plus the sea if you visit the coast just outside the park, it is a great way to spend a day... More

Being a stunning day we would go hard (and then go home). We headed to the jewel in Wicklow's crown, the Wicklow Mountains National Park. The drive was outstanding - amazing day for photography with a grand mix of blue sky, stormy clouds and sunshine. There is hardcore walking as well as strolling level, which is perfect for us. A...
