Fantastic tour

We had a great time with our driver and guide Richie! Thanks for that. We would have appreciated a bit more time for Powerscourt Garden, but that being not included in the standard tour maybe the time planning was a bit difficult. We especially enjoyed Wicklow Mountains with Glendalough. It’s worth to do the walk to the Upper Lake.

Gorgeous Quick Day Trip

We didn't know much about the Wicklow Mountains, but they were beautiful. A nice short tour out of Dublin, when lots of other ones are 12 hours or so. Loved seeing the sights - we were fortunate to have perfect weather for exploring as well. Guide was funny, informative, and provided a great experience. Solid pub food for lunch too.

Our tour guide Owin was amazing. He chatted with us throughout the entire tour providing us with some interesting information about Ireland and also some good laughs. We made the best of our trip although the weather was not on our side. I would definitely recommend travelling with this company. No complaints what so ever. Very happy with my experience.
