Wicklow Mountains
The Wicklow Mountains (the "Garden of Ireland") are a range of mountains running southeast from Dublin through County Wicklow.

Wicklow Mountains National Park is located about an hour south of Dublin. Open year-round, the spectacular park (a popular weekend retreat for Dubliners) draws over one million visitors every year.

Free public events are held at the park throughout the year — special interest walks, bat walks, wildflower walks, lectures and fun family days.

Guinness Lake
Don't miss seeing the small, but scenic Guinness Lake (Lough Tay), a deep brown lake with a white beach at one end — when viewed from the nearby mountains, it resembles a huge pint of Guinness topped with foam!

Powerscourt House & Gardens
One of Ireland's most beautiful country estates is nestled in the picturesque mountains of Wicklow — Powerscourt House & Gardens. Its grounds include a a charming walled garden, fish and lily pond, terraces, grottos, and Ireland tallest waterfall — it's a truly magical setting.
