Dublin mountains is a lovely way to glimpse a feel for the Emerald Isle if you are only there for short amount of time and cannot travel out of Dublin further. It's evergreen and rich woodland are very pretty

Ideal for hill walkers. Depending on which part you are walking on, you should bring proper protective clothing including a walk stick, waterproof jacket, hat, Waterproof trousers and stong shoes. the walks surrounding Glendalough are among the most interesting.

This has a lot to offer, from walking the fields of heather, the piney woods, wonderful views of the city and Wicklow county to the south. You can make it an hour or all day affair. Limited services and free parking.

For those of you who live in the city, this is a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon. There are a couple of points you can stop off and look back in the the city for an amazing view. If you are hungry I would plan to stop off in the Johnny the foxes, it is touristy but the... More

We drove through here early morning and got some amazing shots. Very scenic and beautiful. Not the typical idea of what Ireland looks like so very cool to get to experience.

A magical place but great care needed when driving as it is easy to take your eyes of the road which can be quite bendy and steep in places. Bring a good camera and one with a panoramic app to capture the magnificent view of all of Dublin City laid out before you.

I am Dublin born but it was not till I lived elsewhere did I appreciate the wonder of Dublin's mountains. Now Yanks and others will decry the term mountains and call them hills. Yet they are spectacular. Just nip out to Enniskerry and over to Djouce mountain. 30 minutes and a new quiet world. So many mountains, forests hills and... More

Such a vast area (for Dublin) with hikes and walks of all degrees of difficulty. Ticknock is a popular places to start with walks to the TV masts and beyond to the Fairy Fort relatively easy and quick to do. On a clear day you can see all the way to the Mourne Mountains in Northern Ireland right to Wicklow... More
