This day trip to Wicklow blends Irish culture, history, and the natural world to offer you a variety of gorgeous experiences. It leaves from the Molly Malone Statue in Dublin and travels to notable locations. Being the first of its sort in Ireland, Beyond the Trees Avondale is a breathtaking destination. A 38-meter observation tower with a 360° panoramic view of Avondale woodland, the Avoca Valley, and the Wicklow Mountains is accessible via an aerial walkway that winds across the woodland. On the climb up, visitors can hear the spotted woodpeckers' call and see the area fauna. For an exhilarating drop, there's a spiral slide from the tower that costs extra. Situated in the 'valley of the two lakes,' Glendalough is a historic gem surrounded by breathtaking scenery. It was created as a monastery retreat in the sixth century by Saint Kevin. Wandering around the remnants of the ancient city, visitors can learn about Ireland's spiritual and historical heritage. You can also have lunch at a neighbouring restaurant. Direction to Hollywood, the original settlement called before its namesake in California, combines historical intrigue with scenic vistas. A playful homage to its well-known predecessor, Wicklow's take on the Hollywood sign is worth spotting. A typical Irish sheep farm's sheepdog demonstration highlights various aspects of farm life, such as raising sheep and cultivating organic vegetables. The demonstration of a shepherd using his dogs to guide his sheep is the highlight and provides a unique insight into the day-to-day activities in Wicklow. This tour's stops are all intended to provide guests with an immersive view of the Wicklow region's natural beauty, rich history, and agricultural way of life.
