DescriptionEscape the hustle and bustle of Dublin city center for a private morning tour of Powerscourt Estate, one of the most beautiful country estates in Ireland. Travel along the East Coast through the village of Dalkey Village, a suburb of Dublin just south of the city center. Founded as a Viking settlement, Dalkey became an important port during the Middle Ages, and is now a thriving seaside suburb and home to celebrity writers and artists, including Maeve Binchy, Bono, and Van Morrison. Continue to Powerscourt Estate in Enniskerry. Built on the site of an important strategic location for the Anglo-Normans who came to Ireland in the 12th century, the 1st castle was constructed for the Poer (Power) family that gives the estate its name. Succeeding centuries saw the castle held for different periods by powerful families, such as the O'Tooles and Fitzgeralds (Earls of Kildare). Enjoy some time to explore the 47-acre grounds, and learn the history of the estate from a local guide. Unwind in green and beautiful surroundings as you pass the small villages of County Wicklow.
