When it comes to Irish countryside I would usually recommend going anywhere along the West Coast. The East Coast as a rule is not quite as beautiful and breathtaking as the South-West of Ireland. Wicklow, however, is the one exception to prove the rule. Situated just underneath Dublin it is well worth a visit, especially if you only have limited amount of time in the country and are based in the Capital. Go visit Glendalough or Sally Gap in the Wicklow Mountains, take a stroll along the beaches of sea side resorts such as a Bray or Greystones, or have a look around Powerscourt or any of the other gardens in that area.

If any of the scenery looks familiar: Bray Studios are also based in Wicklow and a lot of International productions such as BRAVEHEART or FAR AND AWAY have been shot in this area of Ireland.
