Sky High Dublin Wicklow & Meath
Sky High Dublin Wicklow & Meath
  • Description

Dublin is one of the world’s most gracious cities, with a history stretching back to at least 841 AD when the Vikings set up a raiding camp at the mouth of the River Liffey. Imposing squares, magnificent public buildings and elegant terraces survive as testament to its Georgian grandeur. Yet the city has become as cosmopolitan as any in Europe, a thriving business and commercial centre with a vibrant cultural and night life (as befits the capital of a country where half of the population is under 30). Now with a population of a million in the greater Dublin area, open spaces are greatly valued, especially Phoenix Park, one of the world’s largest enclosed urban parks. Within striking distance of the city lie some glorious landscapes, country houses and historic sites. To the south in County Wicklow lie the Wicklow Mountains, rising up to 3927 feet at their highest point, and in their heart the ancient monastic site of Glendalough and the park and garden at Powerscourt. To the north west in County Meath, the Hill of Tara is one of the most symbolic and mystical sites in the whole of Ireland, while the town of Trim still bears witness through its medieval remains to its importance in the Middle Ages.

Seen from above, this spectacular mix of moorland and mountain and rich green pastures, mansions and monasteries and strong stone castles, and – in their midst – the bustling capital city, underlines why Ireland appeals so strongly to the heart as well as to the eye.
