From Dublin: Wicklow Mountains – Full Day Coach Tour – 8 hours – Standard Wicklow Tour

Overview

Experience this full day excursion to the Wicklow Mountains with our coaching partner. This tour is specially designed for our groups due to a high demand on a scheduled tour to Wicklow with one of the fun driver/guides of the EI Travel group. The Wicklow Mountains can be seen from Dublin’s city centre so why not explore this spectacular scenery?!

 

A typical tour of the Wicklow Mountains includes a West Wicklow Scenic drive,a visit and guided tour of Glendalough and around the ruined monastery, that dates back to the 13th century, the enchanting “Valley of the Two Lakes”.  A scenic drive will take groups through areas of mountain blanket bogs, sandy beaches and spectacular waterfalls among sweeping green glens and forests.

 

Tours can be tailored on request and visits to Glendalough visitor centre or Powerscourt House and Gardens can be included for a charge (see section day trips with your own coach and/or guide).
