If you’re short in time but still want to experience Dublin's coast and the rural and scenic Wicklow mountains, I will show you both in one day.


  • Visit the coastal village of Dalkey and its exclusive homes along the coast
  • Marvel at the beauty of Powerscourt house and its gardens from the late 1800's.
  • Walk in the footsteps of the Monks in Glendalough with its Celtic Crosses.


Today we will first travel south of Dublin, to experience the majestic countryside of Wicklow and all it has to offer. With its mountains, valleys and lakes it truly is the 'Garden of Ireland'. On leaving Dublin City we travel the coast road to the quaint villages of Dalkey and Killiney. Here we will see some of Ireland's finest homes, overlooking the bay in what locals refer as 'little Naples', such is its beauty. You might even see some celebrities as we walk around thew village. From here, we will take a short drive to Powerscourt, where you can visit the magnificent gardens, which are always in the top ten gardens around the world. A visit to Powerscourt house will show you how the gentry lived through the centuries. We will have lunch in the village of Enniskerry, a fairytale village featured in many movies such as Disenchanted in 2021. After lunch, we will drive through the wicklow mountains, stopping off for unique photo stops along the way at the Guinness lake, deep in the valleys. Arriving in Glendalough in the afternoon, we will stroll from Saint Kevin's 6th century Monastery to the wonderful lakes taking in its moss covered trees and streams along the way. I will entertain you with tales of the great battles of Wicklow, from centuries gone by to the modern day movie industry that shows Wicklow off to the world. On our journey back to Dublin, we travel through the Wicklow gap and pop into the village of Hollywood for a well earned pint after our days activities.
