Get picked up at your hotel, relax in the comfort of your private vehicle and have a fantastic fun filled day! We'll start our day in Powerscourt and take a walking tour around one of the finest estates in Ireland. The view from the estate is absolutely stunning, overlooking one of Europe's top gardens, which earned the prestigious title of the 3rd Best Garden in the world according to National Geographic. Spread across 47 acres, the estate features Italian and Japanese gardens, adorned with statues, decorative lakes and fountains, and meandering paths, all set against the backdrop of Wicklow’s top highlight views - impressive Sugarloaf Mountain. During the visit, you'll have the opportunity to browse renowned Avoca design scarves and throws. And if you fancy, you can enjoy a cup of coffee at their gourmet deli Food Market. It's a chance to soak in the beauty and culture, all while indulging in a bit of shopping and a delightful coffee break. Then we’ll take a short drive to Powerscourt Waterfall. This waterfall is a natural wonder, a real gem that you simply can't miss. Cascading from a whopping 121 meters, it's a breathtaking sight and holds the title of the highest waterfall in all of Ireland. The ancient, rugged rocks that frame the falls add an extra layer of drama to the scene. When you're standing by Powerscourt Waterfall, the sound of the water roaring gently creates a peaceful and meditative vibe, which is good fort he soul. Fun fact: spending time in a natural spot, especially by a waterfall, can lift your spirits and boost your overall sense of well-being. The beauty and calmness of the surroundings can stir up feelings of happiness and contentment. We’ll indulge in splendid lunch at the award-winning pub in Wicklow, close to Glendalough. After that, we'll head to Glendalough lakes and monastic site, one of the most atmospheric places to visit in Ireland. Nestled in County Wicklow, known as Ireland's 'Garden of Ireland,' Glendalough is an ancient monastic site, filled with ancient stories and set against the calm waters of two beautiful lakes. Glendalough is not just a spot to visit; it's like taking a journey into the heart of Ireland's stunning landscapes and its rich cultural history. When you're in Glendalough, it feels like time slows down. It's a place where the past and present come together, where nature and spirituality blend and you’ll understand why after learning its captivating story. Our day will conclude with stopping by the beautiful Guinness Lake, or Lough Tay. The name Guinness Lake comes from its dark, peaty waters, which, along with the lake's shape and the white sand at the top, look just like a perfectly poured pint of Guinness. Your guide will share some interesting stories about the Guinness Family and their estate while you're there. Lough Tay has even made appearances in movies like Vikings, Excalibur, and a few others. It's a spot filled with beauty and tales waiting to be discovered.
