“Absolutely Beautiful and Rugged; A car is essential to explore”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

Although their existence and name are often disputed, the Dublin Mountains strectch acrss the cty's southern fringe, with the best access from the Tallaght area and up through Bohernabreena. There are numerous little back roads and byways, often quite narrow and challenging. Our favourite and least known access is through Bohernabreena and along the west side of the water works. From there it is steady climb up through the Glenasmole Valley and the hillside above Cunard. Here the vantage points looking back over Dublin are numerous. at this stage you are close to the Dublin/Wicklow border and just a little past it is the highest mountain (Kippure) which actually lie inside County Wicklow.

It is possible to drive across the mountains to Glendalough within an hour, a vastly more pleasnt experience than the busy motorway!

“Days out come easy!!”
Reviewed 18 September 2013

Tibradden, Kippure, Kilmashogue, Fairy Castle, Ticknock, Glassamucky, Dublin Mountain Way, Wicklow Way, Even the Hellfire Club, The Dublin Mountains has the lot. What city has a facility like this?? Famous in folklore and song," Malachi Horan Remembers" was the one of the first works to document the social history. On your way down, call to Kelly's Country Store at Killakee for great coffee and scones.

“Dublin vistas”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

came off the M50 for Sandyford and headed out towards Stepaside, via here onto lambs cross and stopping at Lamb Doyles for a spot of refreshment. The views across Dublin from over the road are superb. We then drove up the lane beside lamb Doyles and headed for the Blue light pub a quirky and unusual watering hole. "Nice pint" here and ultimately onto Johnny Foxes. I was told this is the highest restaurant in Ireland. I ordered the swordfish and have to say it was delicious and made the visit worthwhile.

“On your doorstep”
Reviewed 18 July 2013

Dublin mountains are fantastic for young and old. Easily accessible from any part of south county Dublin and free. Fantastic paths and routes laid out by the Dublin Mountain Partnership and Coillte make them an easy (ish) hike or walk for all ages. Pack a lunch and make a day of it. I like to park at Pine Forrest and come back towards Three Rock with the views unfolding as you go - On a clear day it is just wonderful. Get out there!!!
