Three Rock is a tough, short climb up a partially traffic-free road in the Dublin Mountains with fantastic views of the city from the top.

It’s a great place to watch the sunset before hurtling back down to the city. It’s just about the shortest ride you can do up the Dublin Mountains.

Three Rock is part of the Dublin Mountains – a superb amenity for cyclists in the capital, with rewarding climbs which start at the very edge of the city. This ride is an excellent way to experience them if you want to avoid a long ride.

Attractions

Three Rock Mountain – The TV masts at the top don’t spoil the magnificent views of Dublin City and Dublin Bay.
