Enjoy the scenic coastal and mountain drive past Killiney to historical GlendaloughExplore the many intact structures of Glendalough's 6th century monastic settlementDiscover some of Ireland's most striking panoramic views 
Coastal Drive 
At the beginning of the day, you will be picked up by a comfortable, private vehicle and whisked south along the picturesque Irish coast. You will pass the historic towns of Dun Laoghaire, Dalkey and Killiney on the way, the latter of which is one of Ireland’s most exclusive residential areas, boasting local celebrities such as Enya and U2’s Bono. Your guide will share the weird and wonderful stories associated with these places, before turning inland towards the imperious Wicklow Mountains.
 
Wicklow Mountains and Glendalough
 
Carved out by a glacier during the last ice age, the valley of Glendalough is one of the natural jewels in Ireland’s crown and is historically important too. After a scenic drive through the mountains, your guide will lead you around Glendalough’s 6th century monastic settlement founded by St. Kevin complete with round tower, a cathedral and many smaller churches.

After a hearty pub lunch in the nearby area, the scenic landscape of the countryside awaits you. Decide with your guide whether you would like to explore the glacial lakes, walk through the wild heather paths or simply wander wherever your feet may take you - the choice is up to you.

 We built this tour because it allows visitors the time and knowledge to explore Ireland's natural beauty.
