The monastery itself has loads of interesting things to see. The imposing 12th century St Kevin's Cross is very impressive, and is accompanied by a round tower that has its entrance well above head height - they obviously didn't like guests.
The cathedral is great, and there's a handy visitor's centre with lots to see and do.
With easy access from Dublin by bus or car, Glendalough is a real must to get a feel of Celtic life and culture, whilst not venturing far from the city.

At the foot of the mountains is a golf course, and as you gradually climb higher you get better and better views of Dublin.
The walking itself is not too hard going and the surrounding trees and plants are interesting. The Dublin climate is a little wet so everything seems to thrive up here.
There are several paths that you can take through the mountains, all of which seem safe and you're never too far from civilisation.
If you like a day-trip for some reasonable walking, then the Wicklow Mountains will be of real interest to you whilst in Dublin.
