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.
Back on the luxury Mercedes Coach for a free tot of Jamerson Whiskey. Time to talk and think as you start back on our return journey to Dublin.

Your 8.5-hour tour drops off at Dublin’s Ballsbridge Hotel or Trinity College in the evening

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2017

It was a relaxing day and a great experience. The weather was not the best and, unfortunately, it was not possible to drive to Guinness Lake. However, our guide and driver, John, made our day. He told us a lot of stories with specific Irish humor. First stop was at Sandycove Beach. Because of the rough sea and windy weather, the landscape had some its charm. The 6th-century monastic ruins at Glendalough are quite impressive. Nice to walk 20 minutes from the monastic ruins to the upper lake. The lunch was in a pub. A great opportunity to have also a pint of Guinness. Jameson whiskey tasting was also included in the tour. On the way back to Dublin we listened to some Irish music. Thanks John for the day. Fully recommend this tour.

My wife and I took this tour with John as the tour guide/bus driver. John was very knowledgeable but most of all he was a lot of fun and very entertaining. He showed us all the hot spots for pictures. We had a wonderful day.

This tour was awesome! Our tour guide John made County Wicklow (and the other surrounding counties we passed through on the way to Glendalough) come to life with his wonderful story telling ability and knowledge of the area. He was amazing! The trip was beautiful and fun. Highly recommend it!

This tour was the highlight of my 3 day trip to Ireland. The driver John was so funny, friendly and kind and he made the whole day so special. The weather did not cooperate at first, but John rearranged the route so we could return and get a look at beautiful Glendeloch


5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2017

We took the Wild Wicklow Tour with a group of 11 friends and everyone agreed the tour was the highlight of our stay in Dublin! Our guide John was fantastic, very knowledgeable and entertaining from start to finish and kept the coach laughing throughout the whole day. Great photo stops, tales of Dublin and insights into Irish sense of humour too. The lunch spot, a traditional Irish pub where we had a chance to try delicious Guinness stew, was also a top notch choice. You also get a shot of Jameson's Whiskey to add a nice finish to the day! I definitely recommend this tour for anyone looking for a great day out to see some stunning natural landscapes not too far from Dublin.
