Gorgeous scenery and amazing history

Let me take you through one of my favourite Counties in Ireland. I love Wicklow where I lived for a time in a lovely rural village. We will drive through the Wicklow Hills to Glendalough-the Valley of the 2 Lakes, a fascinating Monastic Settlement in a spectacular natural glacial valley setting only 1 hour from your ship. Founded by Saint Kevin, a Hermit Monk who died in 618 AD. The extensive ruins include early churches, a graceful round tower and various sites associated with Saint Kevin. It really is a truly magical place and ranks as being one of the most important historical sites in Europe.

A Recent Review of this tour

We had a wonderful day with Peter getting out of the city for a visit to the lovely countryside in the Wicklow area. The Irish landscape and views of the sea were right out of a magazine. Peter is a very interesting, entertaining and caring guide. A day well spent and to be remembered for many years to come. We hope to return and spend more time with our new friend.
