Great, really enjoyed seeing as much as we did and the light hiking up the hill and visit to view Loch Tay and the movie site. Enjoyed the visit to Glendalough also.
You don’t need to hire a car to experience the Irish countryside! This guided day trip from Dublin to Wicklow Mountains National Park encompasses many of County Wicklow’s most beautiful views, without you ever having to find a parking spot, stop for gas, or check your phone for directions. And, you’ll learn all about local plants and wildlife as you walk through the national park with your friendly guide.
Meet your guide and small group in central Dublin for the scenic drive south to County Wicklow and the Wicklow Mountains National Park. Here you’ll spend about 90 minutes exploring the Spinc ridge with your guide, following the Dublin Mountains Way through lush woodland for spectacular views.
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.
