Step aboard your tour vehicle in Dublin and relax immediately, knowing your day in County Wicklow has all been planned out for you. Enjoy the fact that instead of puzzling over directions and traffic, you can simply sit back and enjoy the scenery.
The first stop is Powerscourt Gardens, where you will have free time to explore the formal gardens and statuary on your own. Your guide will be on hand to recommend the must-sees in the facility. Midday, stop in the Victorian village of Enniskerry for lunch (own expense) and some time to look around. Move on to the Wicklow Mountains National Park, where you'll visit Sally Gap, the Guinness Estate, Lough Tay, and Glencree. Listen to your guide's commentary on the historic and environmental importance of the park.
Around midafternoon, reach Glendalough, a sixth-century monastic site, where you'll have time to explore independently before returning to Dublin.
