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 (own expense), where you have free time to explore the formal gardens and statuary on your own. Your guide is 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, to visit Sally Gap, the Guinness Estate, and Lough Tay. Listen to your guide's commentary on the historic and environmental importance of the park. Around midafternoon, reach Glendalough, a 6th-century monastic site, where you have time to explore independently before returning to Dublin.

We went to Dublin for four days so wanted to visit the countryside and would definitely recommend this trip. The tour guides were lovely and very knowledgeable and the places they take you to were beautiful. We didn't get to see all the places as we got stuck in the snow but

Loved Powerscourt! The whole trip was great, and our driver was very nice. The only issue I had was that our driver needs to learn more about Irish history (and history in general) as he was either definitely making a ton up from the top of his head or his sources are not good

Hi, Thank you for taking the tome to leave such as excellent review .... as I'm not quite sure what the guide's stories may be I can not account for his historical accuracy but the guides would know the main historical facts of this area as they have numerous years experience and guide it quite common....

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.
