They’re up there with the best: Wicklow Mountains one of country’s top visitor experiences says leading travel guide
A trip to the Wicklow Mountains is one of the top experiences a visitor to Ireland can do while touring the Emerald Isle according to the world’s premier travel guide.
Tripadvisor, the online travel comparison site, has just released its 2020 Traveller’s Choice Awards and county Wicklow ranks third in best visitor experiences on the island of Ireland.
A visit to the North Antrim coast taking in the Giant’s Causeway top the list for 2020, while a trip to the stunning Cliffs of Moher picked up the silver award.
The Wicklow experience advises travellers to take in the stunning sites of Glendalough, Laragh, and Sally Gap in the Wicklow Mountains before taking in some sheep herding.
“Keep your camera at the ready,” the guide says, “and take advantage of the fact that someone else is driving, using that time to snap photos of the dreamy scenery instead.
“Stop at a local sheep farm to see border collies doing what they do best: herding sheep, a long-standing Irish tradition,” the guide concluded.
The list is devised from reviews and ratings left by the general public on the Tripadvisor site.
