Overview:

Enjoy a scenic day tour of County Wicklow with a difference. Leave the city behind and embrace the Irish countryside by enjoying a guided walk, horse riding, cycling, or, for a less strenuous adventure, a stroll through the beautiful Powerscourt Estate.

Description:

Explore the beautiful Wicklow Mountains National Park on a full-day tour from Dublin and enjoy fun outdoor activities such as hill walks, horse rides, and cycling adventures. Hear fascinating stories about the historic region from expert guides and travel in small groups of no more than 14 people.

Your first stop will be a lovely spot in the mountains, where you can enjoy outdoor activities such as a 2-hour guided hill walk, a horse-riding adventure, or a wonderful cycle. If you want a less energetic experience, visit Powerscourt Gardens and stroll through the delightful Japanese garden.

Continue through the valleys and glens of Wicklow Mountains, stopping at Enniskerry, where the movies P.S. I Love You and Leap Year were filmed. Drive by the ribbon-shaped Lough Tay, and get spectacular mountain views of Sally's Gap and Guinness Lake, location for scenes from the blockbuster films Excalibur and Braveheart.

End your tour at the tiny 6th-century monastery of Glendalough, and learn about the hermit priest, St. Kevin. Here you will have some time to enjoy a walk or just relax in this beautiful spot, known as "the valley of the two lakes", before returning to Dublin.

What's Not Included:

• Entrance fee to Powerscourt Gardens (discounted fee of €6.50)

  • Rating: 5 “Lovely day in Irish countryside”

    Reviewed by Michelle – Denver, United States on June 23, 2015 Well organized, friendly and informative guide. Horseback portion had many 1st time riders so we didn't get too far, just wandered some fields. But was very pleasant and expertly hosted. Overall very nice day.


  • Rating: 5 “great experience”

    Reviewed by juan – London, United Kingdom on May 16, 2015 The best of all was John, the driver. So kind and has a lot of knowledge. Glad we made it.


  • Rating: 5 “Lovely day out with a really knowledgeable and friendly guide.”

    Reviewed by Nick – Sheffield, United Kingdom on April 23, 2015 I had a wonderful time. The tour was adapted to suit the weather conditions and the capabilities of the people taking part. The knowledge and passion of the guide (John) was clear and energising. Thanks for a lovely day out.


  • Rating: 5 “Wicklow horseback fun”

    Reviewed by Anna – New York, United States on March 31, 2015 Had a great day horseback riding and then with a tour of Wicklow Co. Johnny was amazing and fun, and the small group was so much better than a large coach! Would recommend it to anyone.


  • Rating: 5 “We had a wonderful day...”

    Reviewed by Sabine – Germany on March 10, 2015 Our Guide (Emily) was great, we had a wonderful time despite (or maybe because of) the weather-conditions (rain, snow and sun, changing all the time). We would definitely do this tour again.
