Glendalough and Wicklow Mountains Day Trip from Dublin
US$39.21
Overview
Make a day trip to Glendalough and the Wicklow Mountains from Dublin without the hassle of renting a car. Sit back and enjoy the drive while your guide takes care of the directions, saving your energy for exploring at each stop. Highlights include filming locations from Braveheart, boglands and the heather fields of the Sally Gap, and Glendalough's ancient monastic ruins.
What to Expect
Make your way to the pickup point in Dublin and settle into your seat as the coach leaves the bustling city behind. Sit back and enjoy the scenery on the way to County Wicklow without the bother of puzzling over directions and traffic. 

Stop at Glencree Valley and then continue past the heather and bog landscape of the Sally Gap, some of the most filmed spots in Ireland, to the bridge featured in P.S. I Love You for a photo stop. In Lough Tay, see the lake known as Guinness Lake and some of the filming locations from the movie Braveheart and the TV show Vikings. 

On to Glendalough, famous for St. Kevin’s monastery and its 10th-century round tower as well as its upper and lower lakes. Learn about the ancient history of this site through your guide's commentary before heading to the village of Avoca for lunch at a local pub (own expense).

You will find it at 13 O'Connell Street on north side of the city. If you are looking for the Hop On Hop Off busses, you can buy your ticket from the driver at any stop.
