The Beautiful Wicklow Tour
No trip to Ireland is complete without a drive through the beautiful Wicklow Mountains and a visit to stunning Glendalough, especially when you book a luxury private day tour. The county is known as the Garden of Ireland, and many visitors are surprised to find that just a 30 minutes’ drive from the centre of Dublin lies this stunning ancient part of Ireland.
I will collect you from your airport, hotel or port in my luxurious Jaguar XJ and we will spend the day exploring places such as Sally Gap, Glendalough, Powercourt House and Gardens and the popular Avoca Village. As a private tour, the day will be completed tailored to your interests with plenty of stops for photographs of the area’s beauty spots.
Powercourt House and Gardens
Explore the magnificent 47-acre gardens with their sweeping terraces, ornamental lakes, historic statues, and rambling walks, with an optional tour of the Palladian mansion. The award-winning gardens are sure to impress and the house itself is one of the most beautiful examples of 18th century interiors in Ireland.
A drive through Sally Gap in the Wicklow Mountains
The Sally Gap in Wicklow is a stunning circular route within the heart of the Wicklow Mountains, just a short drive from the picturesque village of Roundwood. With incredible views, rolling countryside and a feeling of complete peacefulness, the scenery will take you breath away as we drive along the winding road past sights such as Lough Tay and the Glenmacness Waterfall.
Explore the heart of ancient Ireland with a tour of the mythical and magical Glendalough, known for its stunning landscape, beautiful walks, and historic ruins. The ancient monastery was founded in the 6th Century by St. Kevin, and the remains include a magnificent round tower which is one of the most recognisable landmarks in the area.
The small village of Avoca is known for its copper mines and its handweaving, with the famous Avoca Mill established in 1723 for farmers to spin and weave their wool. It is still fully operational today, and Avoca is one of the most famous brands in Ireland, known for its signature blankets, throws and natural yarns. This is your chance to learn the art of traditional weaving, as you explore this historic mill in the heart of Avoca village.
