What You Can Expect

Wild Wicklow Tour including Glendalough from Dublin

The Wild Wicklow Tour including Glendalough

In the morning, meet your guide and coach at one of the central Dublin pickup locations. Grab a comfortable seat and enjoy the drive out of the city, passing sites not commonly seen by tourists such as the exclusive suburbs of Sandycove and Dalkey with amazing sea views. Then cut away form the city and take in rocky coastal scenery as you head into the Wicklow Mountains.   

Your first stop brings you to Avoca Handweavers, Kilmacanogue. Enjoy a dose of traditional Irish culture, shop for fine handmade goods and have a rich cup of tea (own expense). Then re-board the coach and head into the Wicklow Mountains National Park and Sally Gap. View the park’s upper slopes, blanketed in heath and bog before stopping at Lough Tay (The Guinness Lake" ) a true wonder and film location for Braveheart, the tributary film about Scottish hero William Wallace and current series of Vikings.

Afterward, your group will visit a traditional Irish pub for lunch (own expense). Relax, savor Irish home-cooking and sip on at a creamy Guinness before heading to your final stop on the tour the glacial valley of Glendalough.

Throughout history, visitors have come to ‘the valley of the two lakes’ for its mystical history, archaeology and unique wildlife. The monastic city of Glendalough,founded in the 6th century by St. Kevin, was once an active locale featuring areas for manuscript writing and copying, an infirmary, guest houses, and a monastery. Now it offers guests a peek into Ireland’s rich cultural history. Enjoy a guided tour of the many sites including the Round Tower, and have some free time to explore on your own.

This trip was absolutely spectacular! It has something for everyone - amazing sightseeing, history, delicious food and drinks, and a little bit of shopping. We were very lucky with the weather while we were there sunny and 7-8 degrees. We also had the best tour guide I could possibly imagine - John! When you are traveling with a group of 25 or more for 8 hours, a tour guide can make or break the trip and John absolutely made this trip. He made everyone on the bus laugh the entire day, knew every detail about the stops we made, jammed out to great Irish music and made sure to ask each and every one of us if we wanted a picture of ourselves at EVERY stop we made. This tour was great but John absolutely made our day! Would highly recommend this tour if you are looking for a well rounded day trip out of Dublin.

My husband and I went on this trip on Tuesday, 15 November 2016 to celebrate my 70th birthday, what a fabulous day it was from start to finish. Couldn't have asked for a better day out. However, the star of the show was Joe, the driver/guide. Endless interesting information, laughs all the way and a great safe and comfortable journey. We would do it again tomorrow so highly recommended. Thank you!

our guide was good and funny. you must love nature vastness. it tend to be colder due to the wind. take as many pics as you could. once you passed an area, there's no going back. though it would be better if we drive back again at the peak before heading back to Dublin.

We were sooooooo lucky to have John as our driver and tour guide, what a firecracker. This was our last day and last tour and we left Ireland with smiles on our faces. It was a beautiful tour, well worth taking but especially with John. He was so much fun, professional and knowledgeable about the history and lore. He was also very gracious and took photos of us. We really enjoyed this trip.
