Visit Ireland’s most famous village and discover the wild beauty of the Wicklow Mountains on this half-day tour by rail and motor coach from Dublin.
Leaving Connolly Station on the Rathdrum train, head south along the coast and enjoy magnificent seascapes on the way to Wicklow town. You then swing inland to the mountains and experience the "Garden of Ireland" (as county Wicklow is known) at its best.
At Rathdrum you join a coach for the next part of the journey. Stop at the lovely village of Avoca, immortalized in the popular BBC television series ‘Ballykissangel’. See the famous Avoca hand weavers at work and take the chance to down a pint in Fitzgerald’s Bar.
Go on to glorious Glendalough, the ‘valley of the two lakes’, to enjoy the splendid scenery and visit an ancient monastic settlement with a famous round tower and lovely Celtic crosses. Spend time absorbing the atmosphere of this very special place before starting on the journey back to Dublin
