Wild Wicklow Tour including Glendalough from Dublin

My Review

We couldn't see much due to the fog on the Wicklow mountains, but it was a senic drive there. The guide had great information about the region. St. Kevin's was more beautiful and interesting than these pictures show. I recommend this trip.

My Review

Absolutely STUNNING scenery. Northen Ireland is so much more rugged than the south of Ireland. First, we went to the rope bridge. It is an intense hike up and down hills and up and down those Irish-style stairs (mis-shapen stones), so I am so glad I wore my hiking boots! Even if you are afraid of heights, it is worth it for the view.
Then, we went to the causeway, and I was so glad there was a bus to take us from the top of the hill (mountain?) for 2 Euro to the causeway and back. Again, I was glad for the boots because it was wet. It was fun hopping on the basalt columns. The guide told us this was the remains of a 50-60 million year old volcano eruption. COOL! My first time on lava and it's ancient! We had two hours to see it, and we spent one hour on the causeway, and one hour hiking at the top by the hotel (great view from there: watch your step as there's no railing to stop you from falling over the cliffs!)
Finally, we spent an hour in Belfast. What a cute little city. Very British with the black cabs and union jacks. Our guide pointed out the subtle differences in the countries since there was no "Welcome to the UK" sign, except the one I got on my cell phone.
This trip is a "can't miss" if you want a taste of Northern Ireland.

My Review

I gave three stars because some of the drivers were too violent in their driving. The recording would announce a stop, but due to traffic we weren't really stopped, so when the bus would lurch foward to get to the stop, people stumbled. This happened several times. The bus also would leave before I got up the stairs, which is another unsafe situation. What's the bug hurry in Dublin? I've taken these tours in London and Washington DC, and they were much better. Also, some of the upper deck seats were unusable due to bird droppings, and the headset plug-in didn't work on some buses.

It stopped at all the places I wanted to stop and was cheaper than a taxi. Since there is no subway, it was worth it. But they could make some improvements.
