1. The Great South Wall Walk

4. Carrickgollogan Forest Walk

There's lots of easy trails here, but no trip to Carrickgollogan would be complete however without visiting the viewing rock. It is worth the short climb up a moderately sloped footpath to the exposed rock outcrop where you will discover one of the most spectacular views of south Dublin and north Wicklow.

5. Ticknock Walk

Ticknock boasts some of the best views of the city, and there's a little coffee stall at the bottom of the trail where you can also rent bikes. Top tip? This is a popular spot for mountain bikers, so make sure you're not strolling along the cycle path.
