Slow but amazingly pretty drive, as an alternative to using the highways to get to Dublin. There are a lot of curves, and first time drivers from the US should be careful and note that at times it can be very narrow and curvy.

I love the Wicklow Mts. They don't knock your socks off like the Kerry or Connemara mts do. They just get into your soul with a beauty all their own. I go back there every time I get to Ireland.

Starting from Dublin you're 2000 feet up within a couple of hours. Wonderful scenery, excellent accommodation and a very diverse selection of fellow walkers to meet and chat to along the way. We booked with trailfinders Ireland who were excellent.
