Full description
Travel out of Dublin and into the countryside around on a 5-hour morning or afternoon tour to Glendalough and Wicklow. The tour begins with an introduction to Dublin City, as you head south toward County Wicklow, known affectionately as the Garden of Ireland. Sparkling lakes, dense forests, and romantic babbling brooks make this a spectacular scenic drive and a fine day out from the big city. You will also see the scenery made famous by films such as Braveheart and P.S. I Love You. Make your way over the Wicklow Mountains to Glendalough, the valley of the 2 lakes. Enjoy a relaxing walk to the Upper Lake and explore the monastic ruins of St. Kevin's monastery. Then enjoy lush surroundings as you make your way through the Sally Gap before returning to Dublin.

The tour was excellent and well worth the price. I would not have been able to see these two areas without this tour. I was visiting Ireland with a group tour but these locations were not on our itinerary. Typically if we have time during groups tours, I plan an excursion and this one was perfect. The driver was a lot of fun. I do like that there are more than one pick up location. When you are new to an area this makes it an easier process. The only thing that was a little confusing was where we were supposed to stand at one of the locations. There were no signs saying the bus picked up here or there. We stopped at several store shops to validate the address and determine where we were supposed to be picked up.

Kevin was our bus driver and guide. He was personable and kind and an expert driver. While he provided ample background during the five-hour tour, he was not longwinded or boorish, allowing my wife and me ample opportunity to enjoy the sights. We stopped twice: once for about 10-15 minutes at Lough Tay ("Guinness Lake"), and once for over an hour at Glendalough to allow for free exploration of the monastic settlement and lakes.

Tour guide amazing, and the place is defiantly worth a visit the only thing would be could of done with spending a bit more time at glendalough especially if your into photography. Felt a bit rushed by the time you’ve been toliet, got a drink and seen both lakes had to rush back.
