The DART is a local rail service in Dublin. Its southern terminus is the small, suburban town of Greystones in County Wicklow. The DART runs along the Irish sea coast through Dublin's south-eastern suburbs. There are some spectacular cliff views as the train goes around Bray Head on its way to Greystones. But you will not see any of the Wicklow countryside.
The journey time from the centre of Dublin to Greystones is roughly one hour, and there is a train approximately every half hour. Not all DART trains go to Greystones; the majority terminate in Bray. The three DART stations in the centre of Dublin are Connolly, Tara Street, and Pearse.
If you are in Dublin for just a day, you would not have time to take an ordinary train into the Wicklow countryside. If you are staying longer, and enjoy walking, then you could take a train to the village of Rathdrum in County Wicklow and from there go for a ramble in the lovely grounds of Avondale Forest Park.
If you are interested, please advise and I will give you train details.
