Explore the Wicklow Mountains National Park
The Wicklow Mountains National Park rises from the suburbs of south Dublin and covers some 49,420 acres of high granite moors, wooded valleys and lakes. The highest point is 3,035-foot Lugnaquilla, a rounded peak rising above Glenmalur. The mountains are traversed by the spectacular military road from Dublin to Laragh, and crossed by the high passes of the Wicklow Gap and the Sally Gap. In the western foothills, several valleys have been flooded to form Blessington Lake, sometimes called Pollaphuca Reservoir.
