This was a leisurely itinerary with plenty of time to enjoy the sights. Glendalough is a tranquil and thought-provoking attraction, and the mountains of Wicklow are gorgeous. It's hard to believe you're that close to the bustle of Dublin. And our witty and informative driver/guide, Stephen, made the trip a real blast! If you're trying to pack a ton of sights into a small amount of time, this tour may not be for you. But otherwise sit back and enjoy a fun day.
I was afraid the day might get too long, but it wasn't bad at all with the new motorway heading across to Galway. Connemara is a wonderful, rugged part of Ireland, and no trip to the Emerald Isle would be complete without visiting the west. We had dreadful weather, but still a fun time. You will, of course, be in the bus for a great deal of the time, but it was broken up by fairly frequent stops. We had nearly two hours at Kylemore Abbey and a full hour in Galway to explore. And our driver, Bud, was very friendly and fun.
