Explore the wilds of Wicklow Mountains National Park in County Wicklow. Wander along trails through the park, spanning an area of nearly 20,000 hectares, and see beautiful wildlife in a spectacular setting.

Set off on a hike through the striking scenery and check out the leafy forests, stark bogland and wide-open expanses. Wander through mature woodland under mighty canopies as peregrine falcons fly overhead - keep an eye out for rare orchids too. Bring your bike and enjoy a leisurely cycle and take a dip in a lake to round off a great day out.

Visit Glendalough, nestled in a picturesque valley in the mountains, to view the life's work of St. Kevin. The early medieval structures are of great importance and make for unbeatable photographs. Guided tours are available upon request. Discover the story of one of our most important monastic sites on a guided or self-guided tour.
