Within touching distance of Dublin, the wild and beautiful landscapes of the Wicklow Mountains National Park are the perfect escape from city life. Walks in the Wicklow Mountains have something for everyone: from gentle dog walks through picturesque glens to rugged mountain adventures amongst the largest area of upland in Ireland.

Rushing streams tumble from the heights into picturesque wooded glens inhabited by deer and wild goats. From the valley floors, superb waymarked trails take you high amongst rounded granite peaks, as you share the expansive views with merlins and peregrines. Wildlife and spectacular scenery are a constant companion.

Experience the ancient and historic landscape of the famous twin-laked Glendalough, a valley that features some of the most-loved hikes in the Wicklow Mountains. It is an enchanting place to lose yourself in, with its forested slopes and delightful waterfalls. Meanwhile, the rugged Irish Sea coastline awaits to the east, boasting yet more beguiling trails.
