The road winds across the spine of the mountains, past a seemingly endless wilderness of heather-covered bogs, lakes, waterfalls, pine forests and trails.The mountains of County Wicklow offer some of the most spectacular scenery in the country. The wilderness is all the more startling because it is just 19 kilometers from the outskirts of Ireland's capital city. Down from the mountains, the county is dotted with picture-perfect villages as well as some of Ireland's best preserved grand houses.The great house was gutted by fire in 1974, but the stone exterior remains intact and the interior has been transformed into shops and a restaurant.At the far end of the county, and a world away from the elegance of Powerscourt, are the monastic ruins of Glendalough, considered one of Ireland's greatest centers of learning for over 500 years.
