Take the undeniably, charming capital city of Dublin, the serenity of the Irish countryside and combine them with the picturesque setting of Glendalough’s monastic ruins for an extraordinary introduction into Ireland’s many faces. After a scenic drive through the city, you’ll head south, traveling into the green and uncrowded Wicklow Mountains with their rounded healthy summits, pretty valleys and the impressive monastic remains of Glendalough. You’ll then travel further into County Wicklow, which richly deserves the title "Garden of Ireland."
A short stop is made at the Avoca Woolen Mill, where the colors in the woven products reflect the beauty of the area and where you’ll have some time for shopping. You'll then travel to the important, early Christian site of Glendalough, which has overwhelmed people with its peace and isolation for many centuries. This most romantic of monastic sites was one of Ireland’s greatest pilgrimage centers up to the middle of the 19th century. You’ll then enjoy lunch served at a small country hotel situated amidst the delightful countryside. Return through the Wicklow Hills, with more magnificent scenery to enjoy as you head back towards Dublin.
