Kicking off in Bray, where a Victorian promenade connects with a stunning cliff walk, it proceeds through Wicklow, throwing up mile after mile of remarkably underrated eastern coastline. Within a short distance of Dublin, you’ll pass the 18th century Wicklow lighthouse on its headland perch.
You can explore (and even surf) hidden beaches like Mahermore. You can break out the picnic blanket on sandy, family-friendly strips like Brittas Bay. Of course, driving along the coastline isn’t your only route to stunning sea views.
Returning north through the Wicklow Mountains, you’ll ascend to some mouth-watering vistas over the Irish Sea. Climb the Great Sugar Loaf, and you might even see Snowdonia in Wales.
