A wonderful combo tour.
This tour combines viewing the old Jewish Quarter where my grand parents and my father lived at turn of the century with a wonderful drive through the varied scenic landscape of County Wicklow.
We will see 2 of the original Synagogues of Dublin and view some important locations in "Little Jerusalem" as it was called in the day. We will pass Zion Schools and
the house where Isaac Hertzog the first Chief Rabbi of Ireland lived together with his sons, one of whom Chaim Hertzog became President of Israel. Then we pass what is for me, a poignant view of the house where my late father lived at turn of the Century.
Then we take a lovely coastal drive south through Dalkey and Killiney and onwards to delightful Enniskerry in County Wicklow.
We can view the highest waterfall in Ireland in Powerscourt Estate and drive on through beautiful Wicklow to Glendalough, the valley of the 2 lakes, a most important 5th Century Monastic Settlement.
We will return to Dublin through Roundwood, the highest village in Ireland

Had an excellent time with Peter who tried very hard to convey his Jewish identity and history. Had a wonderful tour of County Wicklow and the Irish countryside. All in all it was a very pleasurable day and we enjoyed our time with Peter
