The Dublin Mountains

"Climb every mountain"

Dubliners like to think they own the whole country and the mountains south of the city are no exception - although strictly called the Wicklow Mountains, the city has claimed them as its own. Despite their relatively modest height, these mountains are wild and generally uninhabited, providing hundreds of square miles of open country, and only an hour from the city centre. In the past, the area was the perfect hideout for all manner of bandits, rebels and murderers. In the 19th century, the British built the Military Road to tame these undesirables and you can take it to this day - from Rathfarnham in the southern suburbs to Aghavannagh high up in the mountains...if you dare!
