TOUR DETAILS

GLENCREE VALLEY AND THE PS I LOVE YOU BRIDGE

The Wicklow Mountains Tour from Dublin meanders through Wicklow, stopping at Glencree Valley, with its poignant German military prisoner cemetery and peace and reconciliation centre. The trail continues past the gorgeous heather and bogs land landscape of the Sally Gap, some of the most filmed landscapes in Ireland, to the ‘P.S. I Love You Bridge’. Where we stop for a quick photo stop, a real treat for all the romantics on board!

GUINNESS LAKE

Next up is another movie fan photo stop at picturesque wee Lough Tay, a famous landmark from the epic Braveheart also known as the Guinness Lake because of its dark waters and white beach. Recently Guinness Lake has served as Ragnar Lothbrok’s village in the wildly successful television program Vikings. Keen viewers will also recognize Glendalough and the Sally gap from their many appearances in the show.

GLENDALOUGH

Next on the agenda is Glendalough, famous for St. Kevin’s monastery and its 10th century round tower, it’s upper and lower lakes and spellbinding scenery. The Glendalough Visitor Centre has a wealth of information on the Irish missionary monks that once lived here and gives a wonderful insight into their unique art of creating handcrafted religious manuscripts. Think, the Book of Kells and the famous Irish Celtic cross as examples of the workmanship of the monks of the day. This 2 hour stop at Glendalough gives plenty of time to explore the picturesque valley on your and to accompany your guide on a short tour of the ruins.

AVOCA

After leaving Glendalough, for a lunch spot with a difference, the Gray Line Wicklow Mountains Tour stops at a Traditional Irish Pub in the quaint village of Avoca, the setting for Ballykissangel.  Enjoy a hearty Irish lunch (exclusive meal deal for Wicklow Mountains Tour passengers starting from €10pp).

Why not end your tour with a toast raised to new friends made – “uisce beatha” which translates to the water of life! (otherwise known as an Irish whiskey).

 

The Wicklow Mountains Tour will spoil you with photo opportunities, beautiful scenery and your guide will regale you with stories of Ireland and Wicklow. For the walkers among you two hours guaranteed stop in Glendalough valley gives plenty of time to meander from the lower to the upper lake or to explore a little further. The perfect day tour of Wicklow!
