Glendalough and Wicklow Mountains Day Trip from Dublin
US$ 38.86
Overview
Make a day trip to Glendalough and the Wicklow Mountains from Dublin without the hassle of renting a car. Sit back and enjoy the drive while your guide takes care of the directions, saving your energy for exploring at each stop. Highlights include filming locations from Braveheart, boglands and the heather fields of the Sally Gap, and Glendalough's ancient monastic ruins.
What to Expect
Make your way to the pickup point in Dublin and settle into your seat as the coach leaves the bustling city behind. Sit back and enjoy the scenery on the way to County Wicklow without the bother of puzzling over directions and traffic. 

Stop at Glencree Valley and then continue past the heather and bog landscape of the Sally Gap, some of the most filmed spots in Ireland, to the bridge featured in P.S. I Love You for a photo stop. In Lough Tay, see the lake known as Guinness Lake and some of the filming locations from the movie Braveheart and the TV show Vikings. 

On to Glendalough, famous for St. Kevin’s monastery and its 10th-century round tower as well as its upper and lower lakes. Learn about the ancient history of this site through your guide's commentary before heading to the village of Avoca for lunch at a local pub (own expense).

Excellent

Since the begging the team treat us very well, the travel was full of entertainment, history and also with a selection of music prepared by Dave, our Tour Guide. But I can't forget about our driver Andy, who was amazing! Thank you very much!

Great Guides

We really enjoyed this tour because of our engaging guide, Trevor, and driver, Christos. Trevor was very funny, and he effectively engaged us between stops for beautiful scenery. Christos had to navigate narrow roads around cyclists, whom Trevor named MAMILs--middle-aged men in Lycra! The tour...More

Beautiful landscape lousy tour

Gorgeous Wicklow Mountains and Glendenlough but the Darby O'Gill tour left a lot to be desired. It conveniently picked us up from our hotel but these pick ups cost a lot of time. There was only a driver, no guide. Driver tried giving the tour...More

I don't remember where we last stopped before going back to Dublin. You might check with the company and then look for a hotel. It's easy to rent a car and drive there since you want to stay over.

You will find it at 13 O'Connell Street on north side of the city. If you are looking for the Hop On Hop Off busses, you can buy your ticket from the driver at any stop.
