What to Expect
Meet your guide and small group in central Dublin for the scenic drive south to County Wicklow and the Wicklow Mountains National Park. Here, enjoy a 90-minute guided walk around the Scalp, an area overlooking the Irish coastline. Absorb the atmosphere of deciduous woodland and panoramic views of the Irish countryside. Follow part of the Dublin Mountains Way trail, stopping at scenic viewpoints where you can enjoy views of the Wicklow Mountains National Park, The Dublin and Wicklow Coastline as well as Dublin city and its surrounding areas. After a stop in the Victorian village of Enniskerry, used as a filming location in P.S. I Love You, comes one of the most scenic portions of the route. Enjoy plenty of photo stops as you travel through Wicklow Mountains National Park, Glencree, Lough Tay, the Guinness Estate, and Sally Gap. Finally, you’ll arrive at Glendalough, the tranquil valley best known for its sixth-century monastery founded by St. Kevin. Take a walk, relax, and see the sights before your driver brings you back to Dublin by a different—but also picturesque—route.

Very plesant tour around the Wicklow mountains. It is fun to get out of Dublin for a day to seek beautiful sight. Our guide Robert was very funny and knew a lot of things about the places we visited.
