Whether its mountains, rivers or Parks 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. See Dublin from above. The view over Dublin from various locations within the Mountains are breath-taking.

From walking, to mountain biking, to hiking, the Dublin Mountains caters for all. You can enjoy Dublin’s Great Outdoors through a variety of activities such as Hiking & Walking, Orienteering, Mountain Biking, Jogging and much more. For the wildlife lovers there is a variety of animals to spot.

Go hiking up the Dublin Mountains, or on a forest adventure with Zipit or Footee, whatever you choose you are guaranteed beautiful views and nature at your fingertips. Have you tried HillTopTreks walking holidays who provide tours, both short and long, around the Dublin Mountains. They cater for walkers and hikers at all levels. For information on the range of activities available, see the Dublin Mountains Partnership website.

Like 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!

Finally if you fancy a return to terra firma there’s the more manicured and manageable environment of our Parks, many of which adjoin the waterways and mountains in South Dublin
