The countryside to Glendalough and Powerscourt Gardens was so appealing to the eye, Our driver, Michael, gave lots of facts in an interesting and humorous manner. I just wish we had had more time, particularly at the Gardens.

It was wonderful to get out to the Wicklow mountains and take in a short hike to the lakes. The scenery was beautiful. I wish we had an extra hour at the Glendalough stop to explore more. Powerscourt Gardens were beautiful. I also wish we had an extra hour here to explore more, I only saw about half the gardens. Overall the trip was wonderful, the scenery was beautiful, our guide Mickey was fun and engaging and was very good about making sure everyone knew the times to return to the bus and where to meet. The bus tour was relaxing and fun. Very nice!

A visit to ancestral Ireland is something hard to describe in words ... you must live and feel the spirit of Ireland ... something incredible ...And then, after meeting with the wild beauty of Ireland, a meeting with the cultivated beauty ... a mixture of Vaux-le-Vicomte and Versailles, but at a totally different level ... spectacular, indeed

The trip as a whole was wonderful. The drive was beautiful, the gardens were beautiful and the weather was nice. The only problem I thought, was that it doesn't actually say there's not tour of the inside of the house. I was bummed about that but it wasn't a deal breaker. The best part was our guide Michael! And his dollie Mickey Twee. He had us laughing the entire trip! He was funny, knowledgeable and an all around amazing tour guide. My sister and I joked that it would be awesome if he could just be our guide everywhere we went! Would definitely recommend this tour to others.

Vert good visit! Powerscourt is so beautiful. We didn't have Time to walk at the end of the Lake at Glendalough, which disapointed us...

The gardens are breathtaking! We would suggest taking a sandwich with you in order to not miss a minutes of time at these attractions. The tour is unguided once you get to the attractions but totally worth it. This is a must do for an unforgettable time in Dublin!
