    You'd probably be better off throwing the bike in the car and heading for somewhere closer to Rathfarnham/Marley Park to start. Can't give you any pointers on getting from Parkwest to there by bike, I'd say they're all as heavily traffic'd and brutally surfaced as each other. From Marley Park just look at a map and make your way to any of the roads heading due south, the r115, r116, Ballyedmonduff Road and keep going as far as you like, Enniskerry, Pine Forest, Glencree, Featherbeds, Sally Gap, Roundwood, Laragh etc. There's almost no road you'll pick in the Wicklow Mountains that isn't worth trying if you've never been there before.

    Make sure you climb Kilmashogue https://goo.gl/maps/cJNpRHevZjF2 Three Rock https://goo.gl/maps/3gHqxPzBMTT2 and Kippure https://goo.gl/maps/oeeFFzyxNRJ2 at some stage before you leave.

    And let us know how you found them!

    Nangor Road, then the belgard Road will bring you to west Tallaght. Go out the N81 to Brittas, turn off for Manor Kilbride then follow signs for Sally gap. At the top of the gap you can go left and back to Dublin, straight on for Luggala or right for Laragh, depending on how you feel!
