The Dublin Mountains are so close to Dublin and well worth a visit. There are walks and treks to serious hikes for all levels of walker from families with strollers to serious hikers. Many of ther recreation sites have carparks and picnic tables. There are walking routes, mountain bike routes, some pony trekking routes, all with spectacular views of Dublin. We regularly go for 1-4 hour walk/hikes depending on who is with us. There are exposed walks and forest walks. Check out www.coillteoutdoors.ie and www.dublinmountains.ie for directions, amenities, maps, ordnance survey location etc.

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!

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.

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.
