Embark on a journey that takes you from the hustle and bustle of Dublin to the “Garden of Ireland”- Wicklow County. The Wicklow area is full of historical and farming sites nestled within the mountains - come and explore them with us! Departing from Dublin city center, we make our way along to such beautiful sites as the Glendalough Monastic site, Baltinglass Abbey, and a scenic drive across the Sally Gap. Additionally, we bring you to a working farm deep in the heart of Wicklow.

Our day tour to Wicklow departs from Suffolk Street outside the Old stone church in Dublin. We begin our journey southwards, traveling up past the Blessington lakes.

Our first stop is Baltinglass where you will have half an hour to grab a coffee and have a good browse around the 12 century abbey founded by Dermot Mac Murrough the then King of Leinster. This is a fantastic ruin with a combination of Cistercian and Irish Romanesque architecture. The arches are the Abbeys most prominent feature with alternate round and square pillars. Explore the ruins and discover some intricate carvings.

Experience the working side of Wicklow with a visit to a working Irish sheep farm. Meet your friendly local farmer Ed who will introduce you to his life, from the diverse farming practices of sheep farming to organic vegetable growing. The highlight of this stop is a sheepdog exhibition where farmer Ed will coral the sheep with his trusty border collies. We are the only tour company that introduces you to the real working and living side of Wicklow!

After a scenic rural drive we stop off at Lynhams of Laragh for lunch (lunch not included).

We then visit the beautiful valley and Monastic site of Glendalough. Here was where Saint Kevin settled in the 6th Century, evidence of which still can be seen via 10th/ 11th Century monastic site perched between the hills. Explore the monastic site and take in your surroundings and let your spirit run free. Here you get 1.5 hours to discover the area, before we continue our journey.

We continue on our route heading back to Dublin through the scenic Wicklow Gap.

We arrive back in Dublin’s fair city at around 5:30 pm.
