Dublin via Wicklow

Dublin is not only the bustling capital of Ireland, but also located in an amazing area between sea and mountains with amazing surrounding areas that people seldomly visit. With pleasant cycling this tour takes you from the Southside coast and the foothills of the Dublin mountains. We’ll also visit the natural beauty of the Wicklow mountains, seeming thousands of miles away from the lively capital.

Itinerary

You will arrive in the Irish capital of Dublin, but usually stay in the harbour town of Dun Laoghair aka Dublin’s seaside suburb. The cost of a taxi here from Dublin airport is around €50, or you can alternatively take blue coloured Air Coach which is around €16. After making your way to your accommodation, you have the afternoon to explore this bustling destination.

After picking up your bikes from Dun Laoghaire, your cycling will commence! The route today will be along quiet coastal paths and past the quaint village of Dalkey; this is home to many famous residents and invites you to stop for a coffee or bite to eat. From here continue to the beautiful Vico Road which has amazing views of the Killiney Bay. Your stop for the night is Enniskerry, which is reached by heading inland via green fields and farmland. Should you want to visit the renowned Johnnie Foxes Pub, the highest pub in Ireland with local traditional music, food and Guinness, a transfer can be arranged here.

You can start the day off by seeing the gorgeous Powerscourt Gardens. After this you can go to the beautiful Sally Gap Road until you get to Roundwood, your spot for lunch. After refuelling you will be heading to Laragh via Lough Dan, where you will be spending the night. Laragh sits right next to the village of Glendalough, a village with an iconic round tower and ruined abbey.

On day 4 you won’t travel to a new destination and will instead stay in and around the villages of Glendalough and Laragh. This area has breath-taking scenery to take a hike, there are some signed routes around the nearby lakes.

As you leave Glendalough, you have two options about routes that you would like to take; both are on the east bank of the Avonmore River. You can also opt to visit Avondale House and Forest Park, this used to be home to some of Irish’s historical leaders. Another option for today could be visiting the village of Avoca, this was where the famous BBC TV series Ballykissangel was filmed. You could alternatively opt to spend some time in the natural, mountainous scenery on the old Military Road, constructed to let British trips access the forests inhabited with rebellious tribes. Whichever route you take, the end destination will be the same and is the pretty village of Aughrim. Here you can see its quarrying and stonecutting history.

Today is another day where you have multiple options of which route you take, one being more relaxed and the other more energetic. The first is crossing the low coastal hills heading northwards to Brittas Bay, a Blue Flag beach where you can swim. You can also head into woody hills on roads with very little traffic, then through some rural villages. You will also pass by Motte Stone, a large, mysterious bolder before heading down back to the shore and Wicklow. This pleasant seaside village has Viking origins.

On your final day of cycling, you will once again be heading inwards towards Roundwood, where you will stop for lunch again. Back to Dublin you can opt to take a different route than we did outwards, along gorgeous rural roads and towards the village of Enniskerry where we will meet you and transfer you back to Dublin for the final night.

Your tour will end here unless you opt to add more days, which we would be happy to accommodate.
