Shore Excursion for those who need greenery and scenery


Cruising is lovely, luxury is lovely and the sea is lovely - but sometimes you just want dry solid land under your feet, pure mountain air, and . . . peace!
You can sidestep the queues, the stress, and leave your fellow passengers behind, and get into the wilderness, even on a shore excursion! County Wicklow has a huge National Park and an hour after leaving the port, you could be sitting beside a corrie lake in the Wicklow Uplands, perhaps in the company of deer.
As a Wicklow native and a walking guide, I know the county like the back of my hand and love showing visitors around. Depending on the weather and the sailing time, I can put an itinerary together that would encompass the best of scenery, a short hike, lunch in a traditional Irish pub and even a visit to a Monastery or a world famous garden - your choice!
While I cannot guarantee the weather, I can guarantee you wonderful scenery and no shops - unless you want to shop!!

Itinerary

We will meet one another at the port, your accommodation, or a mutually agreed location, and start our day by travelling through some of the interesting parts of the city en route to Wild Wicklow. We will have communicated beforehand on the type of day you are looking for. My advice is to head for Wicklow Mountains National Park - acres of glorious wilderness, just a few miles south of Dublin. We can see hidden lakes, mansions, deer, birds of prey, sheep, turf banks, waterfalls and many stunning locations used in famous films. If you like, a hike can be incorporated into your day - I am a Nordic Walking Leader and keep a stash of walking poles and equipment in my car at all times!! Bring your camera - this will be a day you will want to remember!!

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: Pickup will be at the port, your accommodation or a mutually agreed location.

End location: Drop back will be to the pickup point unless the client requests to be dropped off in the city centre.

Duration: 8 hours

I have set 8 hours as the time but the duration depends on the sailing timetable. You really need at least six hours to get into the hills, relax, and return at a leisurely pace.

Transportation

Transport will be provided in a fully licensed limousine - a Mercedes E200 (2013) which seats up to four passengers. If a larger number of passengers wish to travel, I will quote a price to reflect hiring a larger vehicle.

What’s Included

Transport for up to four people to and from your ship and around Wicklow, the services of a fully qualified and Tourist Board approved Guide and use of any walking poles if needed, when hiking.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

35 euro - This is for snacks, lunches and any admission fees that might arise - Powerscourt Gardens for example

What’s Extra

Money for snacks, coffees and any admission fees that might arise during the day.
