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 was an awesome tour and our driver, Joe, made it even better. He sang his way through the tour which was quite entertaining, and had the people on the bus singing along with him. Beautiful country to sit back and be able to enjoy and see.

It was my second time in Ireland. Previously I have visited Cork. I told to my colleagues that Ireland is extremely boring. After todays tours to Wicklow Mountains with John I completely changed my mind. One-day tour with Wild Wicklow Tours was very well-organised...and John was a fantastic tour guide. I travel a lot, however I have never met so fantastic guide and man as John. Highly reccomended!!!

This was such a fun, beautiful, and informative tour! Our guide John was so kind, patient, and helpful. You can't beat the scenery and with 8.5 hours out in the wilds, you have plenty of time to snap pictures and explore. Not to be missed.

County Wicklow is beautiful, so green. The bus travel with some stops to take photos will show why Wicklow is called the garden of Ireland.
You will end the day at Glendalough, I recommend going to the upper lake 20 minutes walking from/to the bus, even under the rain is magical.
The myst will make a unforgetful scenary.
Remember to take with you a good raincoat and some clothes, you will need them even in August!
