Dublin to Kilkenny via Wicklow Mtns

What is the best route to take from DUB to Kilkenny (one day, no overnight stops on the way) via Wicklow Mountains NP. Is it best to go around the park to the east down to Glendalough, or go straight through the park down to Glendalough? Thanks.

Oh, forgot the needed info that we'll be stopping in the NP for a nice hike (haven't picked the hike yet).

Is this off a long haul flight? if so my advise is to get to Kilkenny without messing on the mountain

Bright awake and refreshed. there are a couple of options, down to Bray, Powerscourt and up, or over the Military Road. Sally Gap Glendalough

Tony, no, island hopper from Glascow, so jetlag won't be an issue. Those two routes you mapped are the two I was referring to. Which do you prefer? Are the sites worth it to go straight through the gap or better to go around? This is in July.

Have done the Military road trip many years ago . Powerscourt is lovely and worth a visit and Sally Gap very scenic.

It depends which walks you are planning to do? if you have any interest in Powerscourt and the long walk to the falls.

OK, thanks Helsie and Tony. Sounds like both are good options so I'll do more research and choose. Cheers.
