We had Dublin Mountains on our itinerary for a VERY rainy day. We took the hike anyway. The views are incredible and worth the work to get to the top.

If you are in Dublin, then I highly recommend a visit to the foothills of the mountains, Sally's Gap or Manor Kilbride to see some beautiful scenery. perfect terrain for walking as it is never too extreme,
