Full description

Your day tour to Wicklow departs from Suffolk Street, outside the old stone church, in Dublin. Experience the working side of Wicklow with a visit to a working Irish sheep farm. Meet your friendly local farmer, who will introduce you to farm life, like the diverse farming practices of sheep farming and the commands used to control the sheepdogs. The highlight of this stop is a sheepdog exhibition where the farmer will corral the sheep with their trusty border collies.

After a scenic rural drive, stop off in Hollywood also known as 'the original Hollywood.' Then stop for lunch in Laragh (lunch not included). Then head to the beautiful valley and monastic site of Glendalough, where Saint Kevin settled in the 6th century. Here you will have 1.5 hours to discover the area. Continue through the scenic Wicklow Gap, journeying along the military road which was built after the 1798 rebellion in an attempt to flush out the rebels hiding in the Wicklow Mountains. Take your picture at the "P.S. I Love You" bridge and see Lough Tay, surrounded by blanket bog and mountain peaks.

A really nice tour, with good stops! We did the 9 hour tour and were very happy with it. You had enough time everywhere and could see a bit of nature in Ireland, away from the hustle and bustle of Dublin. We were very enthusiastic and can recommend the tour to you!

What a terrific trip. Timothy was a great guide, loved his personality and information. he was also great at setting the expectation for the roads and the stops. Loved the scenery! Loved the sheep dog demonstration! The meeting point was easy to find. The value of the tour was incredible. I would use Get Your Guide again in a heartbeat! I look forward to getting back overseas to try more of your local packages.

We had a wonderful tour of Wicklow, the “real” Hollywood - sheep herding demonstration and Glendalough. Phil was a great guide!! He gave us many historical details of Ireland as well as the area we were touring. Michael was terrific with the sheep herding and showing us how the dogs herd the sheep - very detailed and entertaining. Lunch was fantastic - views were amazing - well worth the time !!!
