What You Can Expect
On arrival at the village of Rathdrum, you'll join the coach for a journey through the Vale of Avoca. In the lovely village of Avoca (where the BBC series Ballykissangel was filmed) you can see famous Avoca wool-weavers at work and spend time at leisure.
Continue to the ancient monastic settlement at stunning Glendalough before rejoining the train for the scenic return journey to Dublin Connolly Station, conveniently arriving in the late afternoon.
This tour was really excellent. It was well timed and the places we saw were what I came to Ireland to see. The train ride was pleasant and the coach ride was too. Edmund, our guide, was just wonderful and Tony, our driver, was a terribly decent fellow. I will definitely recommend this to everyone!
The programme was great, the places were fascinating and the guide was well-qualified and he told us a lot of stories about the area and the sights. We enjoyed the whole trip. Everything was well organized and went smoothly.
