TOUR OVERVIEW

Join one of Trip Advisor’s top rated day trips from Dublin, the Wicklow Mountains tour and fall in love with Ireland (if you haven’t already!)

Wicklow’s green mountainous landscape and glacial lakes, heather fields and bog lands (which have featured in movies like P.S. I Love You and Braveheart) will become some of your most treasured photos of Ireland, guaranteed!

With 2 main stops along the Wicklow mountains tour route (Glendalough and a traditional Irish Pub), you’ll be spoiled with photo opportunities and things to do.

Situated in the heart of the Wicklow Mountains, the 10th century monastic round tower settlement in Glendalough is the jewel in the crown of the Wicklow Mountains Tour. Offering up leisurely (or more challenging) walkways to the lower and upper lakes, Glendalough is a must see for any visitor to Ireland. Make sure you have your camera (and walking shoes) at the ready!

TOUR DETAILS

The Wicklow Mountains day trip from Dublin meanders through Wicklow, Glencree Valley, with its poignant German military prisoner cemetery and peace and reconciliation centre. The trail continues past the gorgeous heather and bog land landscape of the Sally Gap, some of the most filmed landscapes in Ireland, to the ‘P.S. I Love you Bridge’ is a real treat for all the romantics on board! Next up is another movie fan favourite, the picturesque wee Lough Tay, a famous landmark from the epic Braveheart also known as the Guinness Lake because of its dark waters and white beach. Recently Lough Tay has served as Ragnar Lothbrok’s village in the wildly successful television programme The Vikings. Keen viewers will also recognise Glendalough and the Sally gap from their many appearances in the show.

GLENDALOUGH

Next on the agenda is Glendalough, famous for St. Kevin’s monastery and its 10th century round tower, it’s upper and lower lakes and spellbinding scenery. The Glendalough Visitor Centre has a wealth of information on the Irish missionary monks that once lived here and gives a wonderful insight into their unique art of creating handcrafted religious manuscripts. Think, the Book of Kells and the famous Irish Celtic cross as examples of the workmanship of the monks of the day. This stop gives plenty of time to explore the picturesque valley on your own and to accompany your guide on a short tour of the ruins.

For a lunch spot with a difference the Gray Line Wicklow Mountains Tour stops at a Traditional Irish Pub.  Enjoy a hearty Irish lunch (exclusive meal deal for Wicklow Mountains Tour passengers for just €10pp).

Why not end your tour with a toast raised to new friends made – “uisce beatha” which translates to the water of life! (otherwise known as an Irish whiskey).

The Wicklow Mountains Tour will spoil you with photo opportunities, beautiful scenery and your guide will regal you with stories of Ireland and Wicklow. For the walkers among you our guaranteed stop in Glendalough valley gives plenty of time to meander from the lower to the upper lake or to explore a little further. The perfect day tour of Wicklow!

Please note: while we strive to keep to our route and timetable, weather conditions and circumstances beyond our control may mean we have to alter the route or timetable slightly, but you are guaranteed to have a wonderful day regardless!
