Dublin & the Wicklow Mountains7 days in the Emerald Isle.
Perched on Killiney Head, the Fitzpatrick Castle Hotel is ideally located to enjoy not only the beautiful Wicklow Mountains that extend south of Dublin along the coast and inland, but also the cultural and social delights of Dublin’s fair city, where the girls are so pretty, as the song has it.
From the hotel we have access to the DART train that connects Dublin and the coastal towns to the south. Thus it is an easy journey to the centre of the city where we can take in the myriad of attractions.
We will also spend our time walking the Wicklow Mountains to the south. We will enjoy classic walks over Bray Head, around Glendalough and around Powers Court.
At the end of each day we can enjoy a swim, sauna or pint of the black stuff according to taste at the hotel.
- Dublin City - a great mix of history, culture and hedonism.
- Walking around Bray Head - seascapes and plenty of fresh sea air.
- Glendalough: the finest view in Wicklow!

Holiday: very well led, interesting area, hotel A minus
Holiday: It fulfilled our expectations and was much enjoyed but did not stand out as one of the best.
Holiday: I would have preferred to concentrate more on the Wicklow Way Mountain area for walks missing out Sugar stack and Greystones which were not really worth walking to or visiting. As the week went on it became a bit more difficult to get certain information I requested from the Walk Guide Peter Watts. He became less easy to communicate with and a bit awkward or confrontational in his style.
