What to Expect
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.

It’s not specified that you have to pay extra each to get into the Gardens or an additional €10 for the walk (which we didn’t do, but others in our group said was definitely not worth it!) you also don’t get enough time in Glendalough to properly explore and see the place!

Hi, I'm sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the tour. WE do state it clearly everywhere that there is a reduced entrance of €8 into the Powers court gardens from this tour. I believe that there is also quite a bit of time at Glendalough as well as the other places visited.

Our trip to the Powerscourt Gardens and Wicklow Mountains was excellent. Our guide was Matt, and he did a great job -- highly knowledgeable, humorous, and very welcoming to everyone. He really made a good trip into a great one.

This tour is great. They use a mini van, and take you on back-roads which regular coaches can't access. Our driver, Matt was very knowledgeable on the history of Ireland and the sites we visited, I could listen to him all day.
