Full description
Discover why Wicklow is known as the 'Garden of Ireland' on your small group private tour, After your chosen Dublin city pick up, explore the South Dublin Coastline passing through towns such as Dun Laoghire, Sandycove, and Dalkey.  Relax with a morning coffee in Avoca handweavers, the oldest wool mill in Ireland, where you can shop for high quality Irish handcrafts before heading into the heart of the Wicklow Mountains National Park. Explore remote mountain passes with spectacular views of glacial lakes and infinite shades of green. Breath in the crisp mountain air with a short guided walk at the Sally Gap with stunning views of Lough Tay and the Guiness Family estate. This area is so unique and spectacular that it was chosen as the backdrop to the 'Vikings' series and movies like 'Braveheart'.  After a break for lunch at a traditional Irish pub where you can taste the local specialities, it's back on the road to Glendalough. An enchanting 6th century monastic settlement complete with round tower, the jewel of the National Park.

Brian is an excellent host and guide! I was traveling with my two 77 year old parents, and he was very accommodating, as to their wishes and limitations. The vehicle was very clean and well maintained. My family still can't figure out how he magically appeared to get us loaded up after completing one of our activities. Thanks again Brian!
