Dublin’s Outdoors truly unfolds before you as you enter the Glenasmole Valley, home to the Bohernabreena reservoir and the Dublin Mountains Way which hugs its shore. Views of the highest peaks in the Dublin Mountains including Seefingan, Corrig and the highest, Kippure can be enjoyed in this area, which shares a border with the Wicklow National Park. The peaks of these nearby mountains contain archaeological sites stretching back up to 5,000 years and afford spectacular views of the city and Dublin Bay.
Both the River Liffey and the River Dodder rise in the Dublin-Wicklow Mountains nearby and the Dodder flows through the reservoir. Walkers can also enjoy riverside walks along the Dodder from the Dublin Mountains out of the reservoir and back towards the urban areas of Tallaght, Templeogue and Rathfarnham through the nearby parklands at Kiltipper and Dodder Valley Park.
For more information on the history of the area and other details, see the Dublin Mountains Partnership website.
