  • Revel in the Irish countryside and County Wicklow's most beautiful views

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 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, Lough Tay, the Guinness Estate, and Sally Gap. Finally, arrive at Glendalough, the tranquil valley best known for its 6th-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.

The places we visited were great, but my main interest in this tour was the guided walk, which was cancelled without any prior notification from the company or the guide. It does say that if underbooked you'd be given a choice to do something else, another date or a refund,

Hi Luisa, I'm very sorry to hear this and I will check with Johnny why you didn't get to do the guided walk part of your tour. Maybe it was a bit lost in translation but i imagine it states clearly on your ticket about the walk so I will check .... thank you for making me aware of this issue.

We had a short trip to Dublin and booked this trip in advance. It was a nice, rain-free day and.although there were traffic difficulties getting out of (and back into) city centre Dublin, the rest of the day was great.

Thank you very much for the positive review ... there is very little we can do about the traffic although we do try to avoid this by our times and directions against the traffic.
