Overview
See the best of what is on Dublin’s doorstep on a perfect half day tour to Wicklow, Ireland’s garden county, with admission to one of the country’s finest estate gardens, Powerscourt Gardens, and time to explore the fabulous scenery at Glendalough.
What to Expect
This tour takes you through Dublin’s beautiful south coast by double-decker bus and includes a visit to the Powerscourt House and Gardens, and the historical monastic site of Glendalough.

The tour departs from Dublin City Center (O'Connell St.) and leaves the city along the Dublin Quays and Docklands area. The bus travels south from the city along the great sweep of Dublin Bay where you can enjoy fantastic scenery at Sandycove and Dún Laoghaire.

Turning inland, the tour climbs into the beautiful Wicklow Mountains and continues through the enchanting old-world village of Enniskerry to Powerscourt House and Gardens.

The estate, in its spectacular mountain setting, is among the finest in Europe and has featured in many films including Mel Gibson's Braveheart. You will have lots of time to explore the grounds to see the Italian, Japanese, and walled gardens and the unusual pet cemetery. Take some time to browse the renowned Avoca Handweavers shop and café.

Before returning to Dublin the tour passes through the beautiful Glendalough valley. Glendalough, literally meaning "Valley of Two Lakes" is an area steeped in natural beauty and fascinating history. It is here that St. Kevin built a monastic city, and remains of the monastic settlement can still be seen today.
