If you are visiting Dublin and fancy a day trip outside the capital to enjoy the landscape of Ireland, then why not consider a day hike in the Dublin Mountains. It’s an easily accessible option for most of the year and ideal for two or more people.
The mountains are within easy reach of the city using public transport and this trip certainly makes sense if your accommodation is in Dublin. The Dublin Mountains offer spectacular views and stunning scenery and all within easy reach of the city. After a short bus journey, you will start the hike with interesting things to see almost straight away. You will experience ancient burial tombs and stone circles along the way, all in their natural spot where they have survived for centuries.
The Dublin mountains border the county of Wicklow and not only will you have amazing views of Dublin, but you can also see for miles on a clear day. The view over Dublin city and the bay is worth the hike alone.
The beauty of a private day hike is that you go at your pace. Along the way you can stop for lunch at a local rustic restaurant, enjoy local food and drinks at your leisure.
With a guided walking trip, you can enjoy the experience and not worry about the route or navigation. You will meet other hill walkers along the way that will give you a friendly hello and perhaps stop a while to chat.
So, if you are looking for a day trip from Dublin to experience nature and countryside, check out the hiking tour options here.
