Wicklow Mountains National Park extends over 20,000 hectares of upland mountain scenery on the doorstep of Dublin. The landscape is a product of the interaction between man and nature over thousands of years, but you can still get a real feeling of wilderness.

The Park consists primarily of heath and bog cloaked uplands along with woodland in the river valleys. The rounded granite mountains forged some 500 million years ago now support a wide diversity of wildlife, some common, some threatened.
