Head out from the busy streets of Dublin towards County Wicklow, for a rich and diverse alternative to the urban atmosphere of Ireland’s capital. You’ll see that the County’s reputation as the "Garden of Ireland" is well deserved. Continue with your scenic drive as you head to Powerscourt, one of the world’s great gardens situated at the foot of the Sugar Loaf Mountain. The 18th century house, which was gutted by fire in 1974, has an innovative new use, incorporating an array of specialty shops selling fine Irish sourced articles and a terrace restaurant overlooking the garden.
You'll then head back towards the capital for the opportunity to explore part of the city at your own pace or shop in Dublin’s city center. Ireland is known the world over for its hand made products and fine craftsmanship and Dublin is a one-stop source for the country’s best wares. As the city is so compact, most of the shopping areas are located within about a 20 minute walk. Lunch is not included on this tour, but there will be ample opportunity for you to grab a bite either at Powerscourt or back in Dublin. Why not enjoy a typical bar meal and a pint of Guinness at an old, charming pub? At the end of the day, the tour bus will return you directly to the port.
