Imagine that just an hour’s drive from bustling Dublin is a wilderness of deep verdant valleys, highland bog with wild deer and secluded mysterious lakes. This is a tour of epic scenery and fascinating history. Real Ireland awaits!

This tour is perfect for those who want to finally experience the 40 shades of green that Ireland is famous for; purposefully relax by filling your lungs & spirit with the freshness of the countryside (Lough Tay, Wicklow Gap, Blessington Lakes); delight in stories & histories about old Ireland (Glendalough); and indulge in great food and artisanal products (Avoca handweavers, Powerscourt House & Gardens).

Just like at all sites, your professional guide will recount the stories, explain the history and culture along the way.
You will arrive back at Dublin Port in good time for your departure. Always be sure to inform your guide of when you’d like to arrive back at the ship. We suggest 90mins at least to account for any traffic delays.
