Driving Military Road

Greetings, After spending two days in Dublin we are planning to rent a car from Enterprise in city center. I would like to drive from Dublin to Kilkenny. In route, I would like to take the 'Military Road' and visit Enniskerry, Powerscourt Gardens. I have set all day aside for this trip.

Could you assist me on 1) where in Dublin do I get on R115 2) Do you know any other 'must see' along this route 3) what route do you recommend from Enniskerry to Kilkenny?

Thank you Very much for the assistance,

J Loveall

Enniskerry and Powerscourt are not on the Military Road.

You could drive to Enniskerry, visit Powerscourt, and then take the L1011 (local road) to Glencree. That's the start of the Military Road. You could stop at Glencree and visit the old army barracks, now the Glencree Peace & Reconciliation Centre.

The Military Road takes you over the spine of the Wicklow Mountains, and is very scenic. Glendalough is on your route, and is well worth a couple (or more) hours. The road takes you to Aughavannagh, and from there you can find a route to Baltinglass and thence to the M9, which will get you to Kilkenny.
