Film Trail - The Excalibur Drive - 42 miles round
trip. This drive starts and finishes in Roundwood
and brings you through some of the most spectacular
and varied landscape in County Wicklow. The isolated
Wicklow Mountains with their domed granite peaks
reach heights of over 2,500 feet, and form the largest
undisturbed uplands blanket bog in Ireland. There
is an abundance of flora and fauna to be found here
amongst the hidden lakes, rivers and numerous waterfalls.
Look out for deer, foxes, badgers, flacons and merlins.
No wonder this area is popular with film makers
as the scenery shows the very best of the Irish
landscape. However, the mountains, towns woods,
lakes and beaches in County Wicklow have also served
as s backdrop for places in counties as diverse
as France, America, Russia, Italy and Germany.
