we absolutely love this area, there is so much toss, plenty of walking, hours if you have the time, all levels, we are easy level walker, the gleandalough upper and lower lakes are our favourite.

The drives are our favourite, the twists and turns combined with the scenery is absolutely stunning, driving up to sally gap is a highlight, we recommend you give yourself plenty of time.

When you walk you can see things that you cannot when you go faster ( bycicle, bikes, cars) This place calls for a walking experience, where the human speed will allow you to enjoy its beaty to the fullest

An unexpected surprise not far south of Dublin. Well worth the day-trip! The narrow roads through the remote hills provide a scenic vista. Very popular road cycling location - we saw very few cars, and only a few more cyclists. Navigate to Sally-Gap for the scenic drive. Then head south to Glendalough Park for more.

We explored the area from the old mining camp, to the Lower Lake, just amazing! There were a couple areas near the mining camp to pull over and park, but we had those areas mostly to ourselves.

Beautiful scenery on this 10k walk. First part is a winding hilly ascent past the waterfall. Lots of stops to take in the breathtaking scenery. Saw deer too

The decent is challenging so ensure a good pair of boots or walking shoes are worn.

Very busy later on so would get there early to avoid the crowds

I was worried we'd have to hike up to the lovely lakes, but there is a very easy 20-25 minute flattish walk up there. Lovely atmosphere at the lake. Nice to have some food trucks on the way back down for an icecream or cup of tea.

Highly recommend the SpincTrail (white hike) for anyone with a few hours on their hands. Beautiful views of the mountains and lakes from above. Just about 10 kms all in there are some steep parts both going up and coming down but well worth the trek.
Plenty of open space and rocks to sit down on for a rest and bring cupa tea and a sandwich and enjoy. Path well marked out, we went on a Saturday morning 11:00am and car park nearly full. Recommend getting here in the morning before crowds converge.

A trip to Dublin is incomplete without a drive to Wicklow mountains. Best way to travel is by a car so that you can stop anywhere you want and soak in the delightful sights. Powerscourt waterfalls is a great place to explore. Carry a picnic hamper or else the cafe there has some snacky things to offer. Usually families and pet owners can be seen thronging the place during holiday season and weekends.
