Description

Escape the hustle and bustle of Dublin and soak up the serenity of the Wicklow Mountains and Glendalough on a half-day trip. See sights such as Sugar Loaf Mountain and Roundwood village. The tour starts mid-afternoon, leaving you time for lunch or a pint of Guinness before the experience begins. After getting picked up from your chosen pickup point in central Dublin, enjoy a brief sightseeing tour of the capital as you travel to Glendalough.  Take in panoramic views of the aptly-named Sugar Loaf mountain and pass through the quaint village of Roundwood on your journey through the Wicklow Mountains. Upon arrival at Glendalough, soak up breathtaking Irish scenery, history, and wildlife at the 'Valley of Two Lakes'. Enjoy at least 90 minutes of free time to explore the Celtic Christian monastery ruins which were built on the lakeside by Saint Kevin many centuries ago. Discover intricately carved stone Celtic crosses and round towers where monks hid golden chalices and other valuables from the many Viking raids which took place in the region. Stand by the water's edge and scan the oak trees to see if you can spot the endangered native red squirrel at play. As you explore, try to spot the location where the Braveheart wedding scene was filmed and where PS I Love You's Gerard Butler famously bumped into Hilary Swank. Return to Dublin after an amazing afternoon in the fresh air of the Wicklow Mountains with photos and memories of your Irish adventure.
