Embark on a journey to the most scenic National Park in Ireland and experience the tranquil beauty of the Wicklow Mountains.

On this full-day tour from Dublin you will get the opportunity to get into nature, enjoy the scenery and absorb the history of the Wicklow area.

The first stop will be in the Irish countryside, where you can enjoy an outdoor activity. Here you will have the choice of a 2-hour guided event, either hill walking, horse riding or mountain biking.

If you decide not to do one of the three activities, you will have the opportunity to visit the Powerscourt Gardens (EUR 8 entry fee not included in cost of tour).

Part of the ever-popular Powerscourt estate, the gardens draw on influences from the Palace of Versailles and Schönbrunn Palace, they also have a Japanese garden and a stone tower.

After this fun 2-hour stop, the tour continues through the valleys and glens of the Wicklow Mountains.

We will visit many of Wicklow’s breathtaking scenic spots along the way. First, we will visit Enniskerry, the film location of the 2007 film P.S. I Love You and Leap Year.

The Wicklow Mountains National Park is full of picturesque settings, including Lough Tay, a ribbon shaped lake and Sally’s Gap with spectacular views of the mountains both of which we will stop at.

Then we will visit the Guinness Lake which was used as a film location in Excalibur and Brave Heart. We’ll stop at the Glenmacnass Waterfall, and pass through Hollywood a pleasant village that was at one time a popular pilgrimage destination.

Along the way we will come to a Celtic Stone Circle, known as the Piper Stones. It is said that a strange group of dancers and a piper were frozen to stone in a circle for making merry during the sabath, a recurring theme in Gaelic history.

Upon reaching Glendalough we will stop for lunch, but not before we have visited its quaint 6th century monastic site. Afterwards we will return to Dublin.
