Wicklow, Glendalough, Avoca, Powerscourt Gardens, The Sally Gap
This tour takes you to County Wicklow "The Garden of Ireland". You would leave Dublin via a scenic drive along Dublin Bay before heading inland to take a guided tour of the magnificent Powerscourt House and Gardens. These formal gardens are framed on all sides by the equally beautiful wild Wicklow countryside.
Then we head through the spectacular countryside to The Vale of Avoca and the Village of Avoca (of "Ballykissangel fame"). The famous Avoca Woolen Mills are situated here since 1723. You can tour the mill to see how they make their fine wares and then you can visit the famous shop and cafe.
Then you would drive to the ancient (6th century) monastic site of Glendalough situated in the "Valley of the Two Lakes" (Gleann da Loch). One of the finest sites you will visit anywhere. Historical and beautiful. First take a guided tour of the historic ruins before viisting the beautiful Upper Lake
Before you return to Dublin we drive up into the mountains to the Sally Gap for an epic scenic photo stop.

Kieran was a delight and very knowledgeable about Dublin and the countryside. He customized the tour to our wishes, plus suggested sights we did not know about which made the tour even more interesting. Would use him again when in Dublin. Seeing the countryside in the Wicklow region and the Russborough House also a treat. The Tavern near the ruins built by the monks was superb. Order their bangers and mash and have Irish coffee.
