Dublin is an incredible destination. There are not many other cities in the world like it. With the Irish Sea on one side of the city and the sprawling Dublin Mountains on the other it really is a place like no other. South Dublin is a fantastic location because it has mountains, rivers and parks so "Dublin’s Great Outdoors" has it all on city’s edge.
Just 8 miles from Dublin’s urban centre, the Dublin Mountains is the playground for all, both young and old. The view over Dublin from various locations within the Mountains are breath-taking. Of if you ike to dip your toe in the water? For an option even closer to the City, explore the hidden beauty of the Valley of the River Liffey. Stretching from Palmerstown on the edge of the City Centre to Lucan on the boundary of County Kildare immerse yourself in everything Liffey in the stunning Valley of the River Liffey!
