    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Paddywagon Tours, Dublin Ireland

    We begin with an introduction to Dublin City after which we leave the city behind and head south towards the Wicklow Mountains. Meet your fellow travelers for a great trip to the "Garden of Ireland."

    Stop At: Wicklow Mountains National Park, Glendalough Village Ireland

    As we leave the city we pass by Sugar Loaf mountain and descend through Ireland's highest village Roundwood on your way to magnificent Glendalough.
    Here we make a short stop at one of the most photographed locations in Wicklow, Lough Tay, which is also commonly called The Guinness Lake.

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Glendalough Monastic Settlement, Ireland

    Renowned for its magnificent scenery and rich and varied heritage in terms of history and archaeology, Glendalough is famed for the Braveheart wedding scenes and it really is one of the most beautiful visitor sites in all of Ireland. You will have 1.5 hours to explore the deep valley with its ruined Monastic City of Celtic crosses, round towers and much more. Known as the valley of 2 lakes, we enjoy a leisurely stroll along the bank of the river, through the woods where we are greeted by babbling brooks, crystal cascades and the lakes of Glendalough. A real picture perfect moment.
    1.5 hours of free time to explore this site.

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Wicklow Mountains National Park, Glendalough Village Ireland

    If you are a fan of the Hollywood Blockbusters 'PS I Love You' and 'Braveheart' then join us on this tour! You will understand why Mel Gibson chose the Wicklow mountains to be the Highlands of Scotland and Glendalough to be the spot for the wedding scene. And then of course there are all the romantic scenes from 'PS I Love You', this is where Hilary Swank met Gerard Butler for the first time...you never know who you can meet!

    Stop At: Paddywagon Tours, Dublin Ireland

    We return to Dublin, delighted with our wonderful half day tour and with great photos and memories to last a lifetime.

    This was by far the worst tour we had in Ireland. The destination is beautiful and worth visiting but the tour was a total fiasco. The driver (was he supposed to be a guide??) was clearly not liking his job, the pickup point was not...More

    We had a amazing tour to Glendalough and our tour guide Don was brilliant. The mountains, lakes, and walks are so beautiful. Our driver was very funny, and his knowledge of the city was fantastic. If you want to learn more about Dublin city, and...More

    Although the bus driver was friendly and told a bit about the trip as we went. I extremely recommend doing the full day tour. It was almost a 3,5 hour drive, with just 1,5 hour there. And once at the location,you walk on your own,...More

    I was severely disappointed in this tour from Paddywagon Tours from the beginning to the end. We took this tour on September 20. The four hour tour is too short to get an appreciation of the area. Two and a half hours were spent getting...More

    The guide was friendly, the tour was informative and the stops were stunning! Half a day is enough, we were under no time pressure whatsoever throughout the tour. Definitely would recommend!
