When you get above the tree line at 1500 feet you realise that you are in a special place. The terrain is not severe but still feels relatively mountainous.

This road is actually the road linking Valleymount/Hollywood & Laragh. We went up here yesterday Saturday 14th. The road wasn't overly crowded but the sun shone brightly allowing Us to stop, have a picnic amd go for a walk up a mountain here. Truly spectacular...More

There is a little boardwalk where you can take pictures that don't really capture the beauty of the place, but other than that it's just a pull off from the road.

Wicklow Gap is actually R 756 road from Laragh to Hollywood. It can be chosen like the way from Dublin to Glendalough Park or vice versa. The driving route is not one the most interesting in Wicklow Mountains but still OK.
