    1. Wicklow Mountains

     

    Welcome to the Garden of Ireland where the Sally Gap road is a winding mountain way ideal for long distance walking or cycling. Lough Tay (aka Guinness Lake) is a cliff-side stunner and Lough Dan is a No.1 photo moment.

    2. Glendalough

    No car doesn’t mean no Glendalough. Hop on St Kevin’s bus from Dublin city centre and you’re there in an hour. The sprawling monastic community has stood here for centuries and the lake and forest walks are some of Wicklow’s finest.
