If your idea of a perfect break is one where you can scale a mountain, delve into Irish history and take in some breath-taking countryside views, then a Tibradden holiday will be ideal for you. The Tibradden area incorporates the countryside surrounding the Dublin Mountains, which also contains the renowned Tibradden Mountain itself. A Tibradden holiday rental cottage is as idyllic as it sounds, providing all the tranquillity you could want with all of the mod-cons you need to make sure that your trip is truly memorable.
A Tibradden holiday has the advantage of being as busy or as peaceful as you want it to be. You can opt to stay in the comfort of your Tibradden holiday rental cottage and simply soak up the serenity that surrounds the Dublin Mountains; or you can indulge in a great range of challenging outdoor activities which include hiking, mountain biking, horse riding, paragliding, wildlife watching and mountaineering. Many people love to reach the summit of the mountain to see the remains of a prehistoric chambered cairn as well as taking in the truly breath-taking views. Other activities available in and around the Tibradden area include fishing, swimming, water skiing, roller-blading, tennis and golf.
If you have enough energy to prise yourself away from your Tibradden holiday rental cottage for an afternoon, then it is recommended that you take the 20 minute journey east to the coastal town of Bray. The town is a hotspot for walkers, hikers and water sports enthusiasts, but it also has some wonderful attractions that do not require much energy. A favourite with younger members of the travelling group will be the National Sealife Centre which houses a range of marine life including sharks. Clown fish, a giant octopus and seahorses.
