2. Lough Tay, Wicklow

This gorgeous body of water is nestled among the Wicklow Mountains. Since it has dark peaty waters and is crowned with a beach of white sand giving it an appearance of a giant pint, it’s no wonder how it’s also referred to as Guinness Lake.

3. Killiney Hill, Dalkey, Dublin

Get your heart going by scaling this hill overlooking Dalkey, a trek that’s rewarded with spectacular coastal views and a close-up look at the iconic Obelisk at its peak.

4. The Great Sugar Loaf, Wicklow

5. Tibradden Wood, Dublin

Located between between the Cruagh and Kilmashogue Mountains, this forest is bursting with plants and animal life, such as Sika deer, foxes and badgers. History buffs can also expect to see an ancient cairn and kist burial site at the highest point of Tibradeen.
