Discover Ireland’s largest National Park located in the majestic Wicklow Mountains region of the east.

About the Park


Wicklow Mountains National Park and its habitats are protected by law. In addition to these laws, there are certain guidelines that must be followed to ensure that all visitors enjoy their visit.


Wicklow Mountains National Park

Wicklow Mountains National Park stretches across almost 23,000 hectares south of Dublin. The largest of Ireland’s National Parks and the only one in the east, Wicklow features wide-open vistas, winding mountain roads and fast-flowing streams that descend into the deep lakes of the wooded valleys, including St Kevin’s monastic settlement at Glendalough.

Discover how you can help us conserve the park’s biodiversity and landscape, or plan your visit to explore the uplands on a hike or scenic drive. A true flavour of Ireland’s ancient wilderness awaits you in the park.

Meet the Staff

A small but dedicated team manages and looks after Wicklow Mountains National Park. They fall into four main areas – conservation rangers, the education team, the maintenance team and the managers and office staff.
