I took the drive for Sally Gap from Dublin via Glencullen, Kilternan and The Scalp into Enniskerry. From here you can visit Powerscourt Estate and Gardens, which include the highest waterfall in Ireland. Continue to Sally Gap, a notable crossroads situated between Kippure Mountain and the Djouce Mountain, where the road leads to Glendalough, by Glenmacnass and Laragh.

The drive was simply magnificent through rolling hills and countryside. On the way, stopping by Powerscourt, which National Geographic rated as one of the Top-10 gardens in the world was well worth it as well

Every time we visit the southeast of Ireland we take time to go through the Wicklow mtns. It is one of our favorite places. So near to Dublin, yet you feel really transported from the city hustle and bustle. Sally Gap is a great spot to visit and look around. You ride over and through ancient boglands and can see the spots where turf gathering is still in full swing. It reminds me of the moors in England of Sherlock Holmes fame. Over the years the county has improved the scenery. It used to be a spot where car thieves would leave and burn stolen cars from the city along the mountain roads. Now all of that is removed and the remote landscape quickly envelopes you. A great place to stop, take a walk, enjoy the view and maybe even spend some time in introspection.

Beautiful views. We'll away from the crowds. Expansive, lush green and cool and to motor exhaust. Excellent for hiking but carry food and water.
