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.

A Recent Review of this tour

Kieran is a personable, and knowledgeable guide with a great sense of humour who showed five ladies a wonderful day while on a shore excursion from the QEII. I must travel with a mobility scooter, and he was totally aware of my limitations and had pre-planned alternate venues for me if the itinerary proved too challenging. A true professional; I highly recommend him.
