What You Can Expect

Glendalough and Avoca Day Trip from Dublin

Glendalough, County Wicklow

The BBC series Ballykissangel was filmed in the lovely village of Avoca, and you will have time to check out the familiar sites such as Fitzgerald's pub and the Post Office. You'll also have time to visit the Avoca Handweavers and craft shop, reputed to be the oldest weaving mill in Ireland.

Then it's on to the tour's other highlight, Glendalough, the 'glen of the two lakes'. The ancient monastic settlement of Glendalough is a truly spellbinding place, home to the impressive 10th-century Round Tower.

This was our first coach trip and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The scenery and places of interest were great and our driver Rich was brilliant, very knowledgable and very witty.
