Dublin surroundings

Spring is a perfect time to travel to Ireland . In fact, if you decide to discover this beautiful country in the coming weeks, you will witness a spectacular landscape. The exploration of the spring season makes the green land of Ireland even more lush, fresher and wilder, if possible.

In addition to the wonderful natural surroundings , Ireland has a lot to offer. Like Dublin , the capital, a city where you will find a bit of everything: historic buildings, secluded streets and squares, interesting monuments and, of course, typical pubs where you can have a good time. But today I wanted to tell you about the surroundings of Dublin, where incredible places are hidden. If you have time, don’t hesitate and set out to explore the Dublin environment. It will be worth it.

Wicklow, the magic mountains

They are very close to Dublin and are one of the most recommended places in the area, not only for the natural beauty that the steep cliffs and rocky cliffs that dominate them give it, or the shady forests that abound between the mountains, but also for the interesting places they hide.

Like the Powerscourt Gardens , said to be the most beautiful in Ireland. They stand at the foot of a mountain and you can visit them every day until dusk. There you will find an incredible sample of ornamental gardens, among other botanical riches.

Glendalough Monastery

But if you are looking for a magical place around Dublin, you will undoubtedly find it in the ruins of the Glendalough monastery, hidden in the Valley of the Two Lakes , also in the Wicklow Mountains. It was founded in the 6th century, although most of its buildings were built between the 8th and 12th centuries. It is worth visiting just to contemplate the wonderful environment that embraces the monastery, although it is also an incentive to be able to see the archaeological jewels that are preserved there: remains of ancient churches and cathedrals, and even a tomb from the Bronze Age.
