Planning Your Time

If You Have Three Days

Most people who explore Dublin Environs base themselves in the city and use day trips to sample the very different landscapes around the capital. Driving distances from downtown Dublin to the Environs are less than two hours (in decent traffic). Just don't plan on visiting both the north and south of Dublin in the same day—each region is worth its own day or half-day trip from the city.

Visits to Newgrange and Glendalough are musts, and the latter of these could be combined with a country house visit to Powerscourt. For the more active visitor a one-day walk along the Wicklow Way might pair best with an overnight stay in the cozy Hunter's Hotel.
