Day Tour Wicklow Mountains including a farm visit

Experience this full day tour Wicklow Mountains & farm visit operated by our coaching partner. This new tour is designed to give your groups a unique Irish experience. The tour takes up past the Blessington lakes where groups can see the lush green fields of arable land before stopping at Baltinglass Abbey dating back to the 1100s.

Groups then visit a working farm where they get to experience what life is like for the rural farmer. Ed and his trusty dog will give them a sheepdog demonstration and explain the workings of this diverse farm populated by sheep, cattle, pigs and of course his five working dogs. We continue on to a fantastic lunch destination in the Glenmalure Valley (lunch not included).

Groups then visit what for many will be the highlight of the tour: Glendalough. The setting is what makes this monastic site stand out above all others and they will have an hour and a half to explore the surrounding area and the lakes.

They then get to experience the raw beauty of the Wicklow Mountains with its mountains, bogs, heather and lakes with a drive through the Sally Gab. There are multiple photo stops at some of the most scenic spots including the PS. I love you bridge and the Lough Tay Lake owned by the Guinness family, before heading back to Dublin.
