Whether you go for a picnic a pub lunch a drive or a walk it doesn't matter. What does matter is that you do go........and enjoy! Easy access. Relatively safe. Be sensible......enjoy and be respectful of the flora and fauna.

We were able to see the Dublin Mountains on a tour we had booked. The scenery is just breathtaking and would highly recommend should you have time.

I have hiked Three Rock, Two Rock, Fairy Castle, Tibradden Mountain, The Hellfire Club,Cruagh and Masseys Wood. I would highly recommend all. The Hellfire Club is not a hike, just a 15 min walk up, but the views are great, all of Dublin City and The Bay.

If you're feeling active there are plenty of wood and mountain trail options in the Dublin mountains. Depending on the route you choose, you are often rewarded with wonderful views across Dublin city and out to the sea.

There are limited parking facilities at most of the sites and on a recent visit to Masseys' wood there was a planning application for the development of a large tourist venture. Cruagh wood now houses the Zipit outdoor zipline centre and there are more coffee vans starting to appear in carparks. The roads are narrow on the drive up and crowded with cyclists on weekends so take caution on the bends. No bin facilities are a particular pain for dog owners who pick up after their dogs.

If you don't want to leave your car it is an enjoyable drive with lovely scenery, which for a lot of people often includes a stop at Johnny Foxes or the Merry Ploughboy.
