The walkers/history lover's perfect day out...


Tour County Wicklow, one of the most interesting and scenic counties in Ireland with a Wicklow native who knows and loves her county. Our tour will be what you want it to be - we can hike, walk or just enjoy the scenery and the interesting towns and villages, or combine all three - it's your holiday after all!

I really enjoy history and an ideal day for me combines history with some walking and I have great suggestions, depending on your areas of interest. Over the last few years, I have been bringing groups (Irish and International) throughout County Wicklow and have enjoyed every day.

I suggest a drive through Wicklow National Park taking the scenic route to Glendalough via Enniskerry. When you book your tour with me, you tell me what your interests are and I will plan an itinerary to reflect this.

I can pick you up at your hotel or meet you at the train station in Bray, Co Wicklow. (There are wonderful views along the coast from the train and it is an interesting ride of about 40 minutes).

Itinerary

This is a day tour incorporating a walk/hike at some stage, depending on the client's wishes. You will be picked up from your accommodation and brought on a tour of Wicklow - known as the "Garden County". The regular route will take you up through the Wicklow Mountains to look at some of the romantic lakes hidden under the crags. We will take the scenic route to Glendalough, the ancient monastic city in a beautiful dramatic valley.
One place I always bring clients is to "the Guinness lake", a wonderful & dramatic dark lake, currently used as a location for the popular TV series "Vikings". Many well known people have stayed in the interesting estate house of Lugala, beside the lake.
The tour can be customised to take account of client interest's. If historic houses or visiting gardens would be of interest to you, this can be incorporated into your day. The photographs give a little flavour of some of the places I have taken groups to over the past year - just let me know and we will do it, if at all possible

A Recent Review of this tour

The best of Wicklow is a day well spent. Dairine is a treasure! She has a deep knowledge of the history, culture, and horticulture of the Wicklow area. You can tell she is extremely proud of her native land. The Powerscourt Gardens are magnificent, and the Lough Tay was amazing. Fun!
