Beautiful trail to walk. I started in tinahely and walked back to marlay park. If you're pressed for time i would focus on the glenmalure - marlay park part of the trail. That's the most beautiful part! Don't underestimate the climbs :)

I have seen beautiful views but this one was really nice. The scenery was green and all nature. We just loved looking over the sea and the green scenery. Very quiet and not many people too which we enjoyed. Very romantic and quiet scenery.

A great way to enjoy the coming of fall. The roads are well maintained and would benifit from some services in the area. Not to be missed.

Once it gets out of Dublin, it covers much (but not all) of the very best of the Wicklow mountains. Notable omissions are the highest and best walking around Lugnaquilia and the Glenn of Imaal. It doesn't actually take you over the mountains as such but rather around them and even the one single top near Glendalough had an alternative... More

I visited the Wicklow way close to Guinness lake today, a steady 3 hour hike in stunning scenery, Autumn colours and mild conditions made for an awesome experience of the area. The footway and signage is a great help. Highly recommend this area for those looking for something active in awesome surrounding! I plan to explore more of this area.... More

It was a mildly stormy day but that didn't stop us from having a great driving day. Maybe we're biased coming from the dry climates of Arizona and California but we thought the clouds above the mountains made it even more scenic.

Had a drive up around the Sally Gap after golf .. Great time to visit when the trees are changing. Will be back again but maybe not after golf as we were too tired to walk.

Took this drive on a Sunday and it was a shame it was raining. BUT the scenary was gorgeous and still worth the trip. Even though Irish drivers are shockers.

If you do the 10km gray trail, it takes you around the beautiful Glendalough! If you park down at the lake, their are about 8 different hiking trails to choose from but my favorite is the one that takes you around the lake and up to the top of the wicklow gap. There are many skill levels welcome at these... More
