Glendalough and Powerscourt Gardens Day Tour
USD 32.10
Overview

Explore the scenic countryside on Dublin’s doorstep with this double-decker bus tour to Glendalough and the Powerscourt Gardens. Skip the hassle of a rental car and take in the scenery during the drive south to the village of Enniskerry, home to the Powerscourt Gardens. Stroll through the gardens and then continue to Glendalough, a monastic settlement from the 6th century.

What to Expect

Meet your guide in the center of Dublin and board a double-decker bus to Wicklow for this Glendalough and Powerscourt Gardens Tour. (Hotel shuttle service is also available on request).

Departing from Dublin city center, the tour first passes the Docklands neighborhood before cruising along the banks of Dublin Bay in Sandymount. The tour continues inland, moving towards the scenic Wicklow Mountains and the charming village of Enniskerry, home to the Powerscourt Estate and Gardens.

The tour includes a stop at Powerscourt with time to explore the beautiful gardens, including formal Italian and Japanese gardens.

The next stop is Glendalough, a monastic settlement founded by St. Kevin in the 6th century. A one-hour visit includes time to wander independently and walk along Glendalough’s scenic wooded trails.

The return bus trip to Dublin includes more beautiful scenery of Wicklow and the Dublin mountains.

For extra value, passengers can access one free loop on the hop-on hop-off city tour on the same day as this Glendalough tour.
