Not enough time at Glendalough
Jul. 2021
Current covid restrictions meant that we could not stop in Eiskenny for lunch and we had longer at Powerscourt to explore and eat. I thought it was too much time there and not enough time at Glendalough. We had 90 mins and it would have been nicer to spend more time there exploring some of the walking trails or taken a picnic.

Lovely tour guides!
Dec. 2019 • Couples
We went to Dublin for four days so wanted to visit the countryside and would definitely recommend this trip. The tour guides were lovely and very knowledgeable and the places they take you to were beautiful. We didn't get to see all the places as we got stuck in the snow but nonetheless had an enjoyable time!
