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.

AMAZING!! I have done many tours around Europe but this one takes the cake! The tour guide Mark was very knowledgeable on the history of Ireland and was very accommodating! We had a wonderful time learning sheep herding, holding puppies and seeing the beautiful landmarks of the country side of Dublin! It was a great and cheap day trip!!! 10/10 recommend!

Perfect !!! Allan our guide was exceptional! We were a couple to have done the day and with 3 other people. It was during the week so we had a coach for us (about fifteen very luxury seats). In the morning, a visit to a traditional local with sheep and dogs, it was very nice! And the afternoon free time on wicklow !! And lots of views on the road because Allan stopped and was very funny too! I highly recommend this activity, breathtaking scenery

We have had a wonderful day! the coach driver Harry was so friendly and social and communicative with us. Actually he was more than a guide or driver, he is a good story teller and source of information about history, geography, culture, politic, sport. When making stops and sightseeins was very flexible. Thank you Harry for the wonderfull day, and who knows maybe we meet again during our future visit to Dublin. Mostafa from Holland
