What You Can Expect

Wicklow and Glendalough Tour from Dublin - Morning Tour

Beautiful Lakes

Meet your guide in central Dublin and soak up the scenery on the journey south through the Wicklow Mountains, the region nicknamed the ‘Garden of Ireland’. Listen to your guide as you wind through the hills, passing the looming peak of Sugar Loaf Mountain and Roundwood, Ireland's highest village, on the way to Glendalough.

Hop out to admire the magnificent scenery of Glendalough, a glacial valley with two glittering lakes framed by a ring of mountains and dotted with ancient ruins. Follow your guide around the 6th-century remains of a monastic settlement, including a round tower and Celtic cross, and see the locations where scenes from ‘Braveheart’, ‘Vikings’ and ‘PS I Love You’ were filmed.

After around 1.5 hours of free time to stroll around the lakes and capture photos of the babbling brooks and serene woodlands, jump back on the bus for the return journey to Dublin.

Continue through the dramatic mountain pass of Sally Gap, then arrive back in the city and end your tour in central Dublin.

I really enjoyed this tour! The scenery is beautiful! The tour was the perfect length 4hours which let me explore in the morning and then sit see in Dublin in the afternoon. Our tour guide was a little snippy at the end when we asked him to drop us off at the same point he picked us up at, but I would do this tour again.

Absolutely an AMAZING TOUR! Words can not adequately express how much fun this tour was. We had a small group of about 9 people but that made it all the better. Kieran was an excellent driver and tour guide. He was quirky and full of knowledge! He definitely knew how to make us fall in love with Ireland and especially Wicklow and Glendalough. I highly recommend this tour to any and everybody!

Our driver/guide, Desmond, was gruff, crusty, knowledgeable, and thoroughly entertaining!!! A very safe driver, too. We were treated at one point to his excellent fiddle-playing and singing - a real treat. The Wicklow region, and specifically Glendalough, is incredibly beautiful... almost feels sacred. We had ample time to explore on our own - and enjoyed a bit of hiking while learning about history. And what a fascinating cemetery there is at Glendalough! Recommend this tour - a great value!
