Dún LaoghairePerhaps Ireland's oldest town, Dún Laoghaire is named after its founder, the High King of Ireland who used the area as his sea-fort for raiding into Britain and France. The harbour is notable for its two granite piers.
SandycoveSandycove is a pleasant little harbour where the James Joyce Museum can be found in the Martello Tower built in 1804. This tower was lived in briefly by James Joyce and became famous as the setting for the opening of Ulysses.
DalkeyOnce known as the 'Town of Seven Castles' the castles were built as warehouses to store goods. Two of these: Goat Castle, which houses the Heritage Centre and Archbold's Castle are still standing today.
EnniskerryThis picturesque village is located east of The Wicklow Way. The heart of the village retains its elegant Victorian feeling with its most distinctive feature is the clock tower dating from 1843. It was erected as a memorial to the Wingfield family then owners of the nearby Powerscourt Estate.
PowerscourtPowerscourt House and Gardens, built in 1730's, are probably the finest in Ireland, both for their design and their dramatic setting at the foot of Great Sugar Loaf Mountain. It now incorporates a range of specialty shops as well as a restaurant, golf course and formal gardens.
Glendalough Heritage SiteGlendalough is home to one of the most important monastic sites in Ireland. It is here that St. Kevin founded a monastery in the 6th century. Most of the buildings that survive today date from the 10th through 12th centuries.
