Ticknock - Sandyford *

Ticknock offers up to 10 km of mountain and forest walks with some spectacular views of Dublin City, Dublin Bay, Bray Head and Wicklow Mountains. The forest has an extensive network of forest trails with pleasant walks through the plantations of Sitka spruce, Japanese larch, Scots pine, Monterey pine and lodgepole pine. The entrance to the property at 270 meters above sea level leads to the summit of the Three Rock Mountain (444 meters above sea level). The three large rock formations are the result of weathering and together with picturesque views over the Wicklow mountains and the coast create a very popular tourist destination. In the area, there is also a Two Rock Mountain (536 meters above the sea level) with romantic ruins of the Fairy Castle. The walking paths in this area are of moderate difficulty. The main forest roads are easily accessible for children and people with lower level of fitness. Ticknock is a possible starting point for the Wicklow Way, many parts of which are strenuous for walking. When taking this yellow waymarked trail and venturing into the hills, visitors are advised to be equipped with waterproof clothing, strong shoes, a drink and a map of compass. Ticknock forest offers an easy access to Kilmashogue and Tibradden Mountain.


Located in the Dublin Mountains, only a half hour 44B bus or car journey's time from the centre of Dublin; 3 km south west of Sandyford. From the city centre, head for Marlay Park via Rathfarnham. Passing the main entrance to the Park on your right, turn right at St.Endaís GAA Club and, following the road around the edge of the Park, turn left at the Taylorís Grange junction onto the R113. Take the second turn on the right and this will bring you to the entrance to Ticknock forest.
