One of the best things about living in Dublin is the distance to Wicklow mountains. It takes us 45 minutes to leave the city and be in the middle of this amazing landscape.
If you follow the military road through the Wicklow mountains, through Sally Gap you’ll find a small parking spot along the Glenmacnass river. You can leave your car and walk a few hundred meters along the river. You’ve been driving through the bogland but when the river falls down into Glenmacnass valley and you’ll have an amazing view of the valley with its sheepfarms, the mountains, forest and the beautiful waterfall. It’s one of my favorite spots in Wicklow!
