What to expect

Your tour starts with a pickup from Dublin city. Your guide will introduce himself and explain the Itinerary for the day. He will also give you the history of Dublin and Ireland while driving away from the city.

The first stop on this tour is the "Powerscourt House and Gardens" - voted the 3rd most beautiful gardens in the world by the National Geographic, and they are worth a visit. Within the gardens, there is a cafe and shops where you can relax for a while after walking the gardens. You spend approx 1.5hrs here.
For lunch, we visit the small town of Enniskerry before we continue through the Wicklow Mountains Park, stopping along the way at some scenic locations for some great photo opportunities. We visit the Sally Gap, Lough Tay, and the Guinness Estate, the "PS I Love You" bridge while making our way towards Glendalough.

Once we reach Glendalough "Valley of the two lakes" we visit the monastery of St Kevin dated back from the 6th century. Your guide will bring you through the monastery and give you some of its history and meaning to the Irish people.

At this point, you are given some free time to explore the valley and its two lakes for approximately 1.5 hours before we make our way back to Dublin on a slightly different route.
