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.
Very full itinery with many areas of interest. We wouldn't have seen most of this if we had gone it alone. Loved the train journey. The tour guide Liam was very knowledgable and kept us up to date with lots of information about all the places we visited. Well worth a visit.
Great tour.....perfect day and nice guide Paddy
A very good agenda, wonderful tour guide.
Liam and Patrick were wonderful. Liam was full of fun facts and went at a great pace for the group. We got to see so much and it was so pretty. Thanks again! Very easy too.
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.
Our recent trip to Ireland was made even more amazing by our day trip to Wicklow, Avoca and Glendalough. Edmond, our guide, was fun, knowledgeable and helpful. Breaking the trip up by traveling by rail and coach was terrific. Can't wait to return!
Our tour guide was amazing! He was very knowledgeable and so pleasant. We had a bright sunny day and everyone really enjoyed themselves. Thank you!
What a lovely tour. The nature was so beautiful. And Avoca was so picturesque. This was well-worth the money. A must see!
The tour was beautiful, but our tour guide really made the difference. He was a great tour guide and I would recommend him specifically for any tours!
