Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

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.

I cannot say enough about this company. My brother and I could not find where the bus stop was, so they got into contact with us and made sure that we still made the trip! Went above and beyond in that regard. In addition, John the tour guide was amazing. He provided details about where we were going and made sure that we were all having a great time on it. The tour itself is amazing, with great views of the Irish country side and a stop at a small hotel with great food. Thanks again guys for your help, you made my trip to Ireland amazing!

The bus driver-guide was amazing guy, he had great descriptions on every monument and landscape with a very good sense of humour!!
