About the Dublin Mountain Partnership

The Dublin Mountains Partnership or DMP was set up in May 2008 with the ultimate aim of improving the recreational experience for users of the Dublin Mountains, whilst recognising the objectives and constraints of the various landowners.


The partner organisations involved are Coillte, South Dublin County Council, Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council, Dublin City Council, National Parks and Wildlife Service and the Dublin Mountains Initiative*, since 2018 Fáilte Ireland has sat on the DMP Board. The DMP was formally launched by Minister Eamon Ryan on Friday 24th October 2008 at a ceremony in Tibradden Forest.

The establishment of the DMP addresses the key need to manage the area as an integrated entity and also provides for commitments on funding and resources to underpin the DMP’s work.


The DMP Strategic Plan 2021-2025 is almost finalised and will be launched in quarter two of 2021.
