“Amazing views .”
Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

If it is a quiet Sunday afternoon stroll your looking for there are many woodland walks suitable for all. If your are looking for adventure in the great outdoors the Dublin Wicklow mountains have it all . Unlike mountain ranges in Europe you can get right off thr beaten track very quickly . Moulin mountain via crones wood carpark above the waterfall near Enisskerry is a great place to start. Most areas are no more than 30 minutes from the city centre . Overall a great day out or a adventure packed weekend in nature but very close to Dublin city .

“Easy and accessible day or half day excursion form Dublin”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

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.

“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.
