Next, head for Sally Gap and the Wicklow Mountains National Park, where the slopes are covered with heath and bogs. Stop at Lough Tay, where sections of the movie 'Braveheart' were filmed. Relax and refuel (at your own expense) at a traditional Irish pub before heading to Glendalough, a glacial valley rich with wildlife, archaeology, and mystical history.
