You'll continue on to the green mountains of Wicklow County, where you'll stop for morning tea (additional cost) at Avoca Handweavers. The oldest wool mill in Ireland, Avoca Handweavers is a great place to shop for high-quality Irish crafts.
The next stop on your Wicklow tour in Glendalough, in Wicklow Mountains National Park. Glendalough is renowned for its natural beauty and history, and is one of the most visited places in Ireland.
At Glendalough, your guide will walk with you through the 6th-century monastic settlement. You'll learn about St Kevin, the founder of the ancient monastery, and hear stories relating to the ruins scattered about the site, including the famous Round Tower. There will also be time for a leisurely stroll through the woods to Upper Lake.
Leaving the peace and serenity of Glendalough behind, you'll head off for a stop at a local pub for lunch (additional cost). Enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and good old-fashioned home cooking of a traditional Irish pub. Why not wash lunch down with a hearty pint of Guinness?
After lunch you'll begin your return to Dublin, via Sally's Gap, where scenes from Braveheart were filmed in 1995. This scenic but desolate area of wild bogland offers a stunning contrast to the Wicklow Mountains.
You'll arrive back in Dublin in the late afternoon, with drop-off either in Ballsbridge (D4) or at Trinity College.

It was a relaxing day and a great experience. The weather was not the best and, unfortunately, it was not possible to drive to Guinness Lake. However, our guide and driver, John, made our day. He told us a lot of stories with specific Irish humor. First stop was at Sandycove Beach. Because of the rough sea and windy weather, the landscape had some its charm. The 6th-century monastic ruins at Glendalough are quite impressive. Nice to walk 20 minutes from the monastic ruins to the upper lake. The lunch was in a pub. A great opportunity to have also a pint of Guinness. Jameson whiskey tasting was also included in the tour. On the way back to Dublin we listened to some Irish music. Thanks John for the day. Fully recommend this tour.

My wife and I took this tour with John as the tour guide/bus driver. John was very knowledgeable but most of all he was a lot of fun and very entertaining. He showed us all the hot spots for pictures. We had a wonderful day.
