    We drove an hour and a half to the Wicklow Mountains and then an hour and a half back. At the Wicklow Mountains we had about 2 hours for a nice walk. Not much was told, but that is also not easy if you are a driver at the same time. If you know what to expect it was totally fine!

    The excursion did not correspond exactly to what we had imagined. We were driven to Glendalough and then left free for 1 hour and a half. It's quite short and we thought in view of the previous comments that we would make other stops and that we would have more info on what we were going to see ... the driver was friendly of course but he told us more about his life and details unrelated to the visit (such an actor stayed in such a hotel on the way... yay), it was embarrassing. On the way back he gave us some info on Dublin and the country, it looked like he was trying to catch up. Also on the way there it was stiflingly hot in the bus and we were barely breathing + we were tight In the end we were happy to go see this site for less than a car rental but that's the only advantage !

    The tour was excellent and well worth the price. I would not have been able to see these two areas without this tour. I was visiting Ireland with a group tour but these locations were not on our itinerary. Typically if we have time during groups tours, I plan an excursion and this one was perfect. The driver was a lot of fun. I do like that there are more than one pick up location. When you are new to an area this makes it an easier process. The only thing that was a little confusing was where we were supposed to stand at one of the locations. There were no signs saying the bus picked up here or there. We stopped at several store shops to validate the address and determine where we were supposed to be picked up.
