Visit Wicklow

Aren't these views from Church Mountain, on the western fringe of the Wicklow Mountains, fantastic! ⛰️ With thanks to TJ Dillon Photography.

As Gaeilge, the name is Sliabh an Chodaigh, meaning "mountain of the covenant" - at the summit you'll find what remains of an ancient pagan cairn, upon which a small church is said to have been built later by St. Kevin, in the 6th Century.

Pilgrims traditionally climbed the mountain to visit a holy well during the festival of Lughnasa, marking the beginning of the harvest season.

The mountain is 544 metres high and is located about halfway between Hollywood and Donard villages. From the top, you'll be rewarded by stunning views of the lakes and countryside below!
