Wicklow Mountains Tours

star-4.5
1,367 Reviews

Wicklow Mountains National Park, also known as the Garden of Ireland, is one of the country’s six national parks and an easy day trip from Dublin, only 18.5 miles (30 km) away. Travelers frequent this County Wicklow mountain range to spend time away from the city and enjoy the stunningly wild landscape that is so markedly different from the typical green, grassy plains of the Emerald Isle. You’ll find 50,000 acres (20,000 hectares) of low mountains, serene lakes, and deep glacial valleys offering chances to fish, kayak, and hike.


Wicklow Mountain Scenery

From bog lands to heather fields, stunning mountain landscapes awaits at the Wicklow Mountains. The park features Glencree Valley and Sally Gap, in addition to one of Ireland’s highest waterfalls, Powerscourt. Other must-see spots include the P.S. I Love You Bridge; Powerscourt Gardens at the Powerscourt Estate; the Wicklow Gap, where much of Braveheart was filmed; and Lough Tay, also known as Guinness Lake. Many tours include nature walks with a tour guide, and some allow for exploring nearby medieval villages such as Kilkenny and the round tower at the Glendalough Monastic Settlement, founded by St. Kevin in the sixth century. Because there’s so much natural beauty to take in at the national park, it’s recommended that you spend a full day here.


Insider Tip

Stop by Fitzgerald's Pub in Avoca in County Wicklow for lunch at a traditional Irish pub. Plus, what’s lunch on the Emerald Isle without a Guinness to go with it?

Things to Know Before You Go
  • There is no entrance fee for the national park, but you will have to pay for parking.
  • Although the area is widely remote, most facilities can be found in the Glendalough area, including the Glendalough Visitor Center, where you’ll find historical exhibits and park information.
  • Most coach tours offer free WiFi on the bus.
  • A few paths and trails near Upper Lake and Lower Lake have been deemed fit for wheelchair users.

How to Get There

Wicklow Mountains tours are offered with daily departures from Dublin city center. The scenic route to the mountains from Dublin takes about an hour by car or coach via the winding Military Road, which passes numerous bogs and lakes along the way. It’s also possible to arrive by rail tour, which removes the hassle of navigating mountain roads without compromising the stunning views of the Irish countryside.

Address: Wicklow Mountains National Park, County Wicklow, Ireland
Hours: Daily 10am-6pm May-Aug, weekends Sept-April

A day in Wicklow with a private guide! Scenery, history, & hiking (if you want!)

star-5
This is a tour of Wicklow, given by someone who grew up here and loves it. The tour described is an outline of what we might do, but we have plenty of options. I can suggest other places to visit on our day, and can incorporate other site visits, within reason. I am a Driver/Guide so we have a car, have a guide, and can do what we like!! Sometimes I bring people to some of the lesser known spots - old bridges by dark rivers, or up a favourite mountain, or to a beautiful garden. Occasionally, I bring visitors to my family farm, where my father and brother enjoy meeting visitors, and showing them over the farm. This is a 300 year old farm house which has been in the family for 8 generations and sheep, cattle and poultry are kept. You will be expected to chat with the family and tell them where you are from too!
