Overview:

Walk in the footsteps of pilgrims and hermit monks on a full-day tour of the Wicklow Mountains National Park. Visit a Japanese Garden, see a monastery, and discover movie locations. Then choose to ride horses, go cycling, or take a guided hill walk.

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.

Pass through Hollywood, a pleasant village that was once a popular destination for pilgrims. You will come to a Celtic Stone Circle known as Piper Stones, where you will hear about the strange group of dancers and piper who were frozen to stone in a circle for making merry during the Sabbath. End your tour at the tiny 6th-century monastery of Glendalough, and learn about the hermit priest, St. Kevin.

  • Rating: 5 “Great!”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Durham, United Kingdom on August 15, 2014 We choose this tour because it is unique, with the opt for horse riding activities. So we went for horse riding activities and it was awesome. Both of us are newbies & have no experiece in riding! Thanks Joe (horseman) for the guide and Michael for the tour! Stunning places. Though I don't watch the movies -p/s I love you, Vikings, Braveheart, Leap Year, but the view is just superb.

    Half day for outdoor activites and another half day is tour around Wicklow. It would be great to have longer tour around Wicklow..


  • Rating: 5 “The perfect day!”

    Reviewed by Courtney from Sydney, Australia on June 16, 2014 We had a wonderful time on the tour! Terry, our guide, was so positive and fun, and it helped that the weather was uncharacteristically amazing too! We had enough time for everything, and it was a fun, and easy-going group, and Terry taught us a lot about the places we were visiting and there were plenty of photo ops. No complaints at all. The only comment I'd like the make is that the horse-riding tour was a bit too restricted for my liking, as I have done other similar activities with more freedom, however, I guess this is due to the different safety standards, and I completely understand anyway - nevertheless, the sites we saw on the trail were amazing! Would recommend this tour still :)
