Overview
Explore the countryside on Dublin’s doorstep with this double-decker bus tour to Glendalough and Powerscourt Gardens. Skip the hassle of a rental car and take in the scenery during the drive south to the village of Enniskerry.

What to Expect
Meet your guide in the center of Dublin and board a double-decker bus to Wicklow for this Glendalough and Powerscourt Gardens Tour. (Hotel shuttle service is available on request).
Departing from Dublin city center, the tour passes the Docklands neighborhood before cruising along the banks of Dublin Bay in Sandymount. The tour continues inland, moving towards Wicklow Mountains and the village of Enniskerry, home to the Powerscourt Estate and Gardens.
The tour includes a stop at Powerscourt with time to explore the gardens, including formal Italian and Japanese gardens.
The next stop is Glendalough, a monastic settlement founded by St. Kevin in the sixth century. A one-hour visit includes time to wander independently and walk along Glendalough’s scenic wooded trails.
The bus returns you to Dublin. For extra value, passengers can access one free loop on the hop-on hop-off city tour on the same day as this Glendalough tour.

Great trip all around!

We were a little worried it may not be worth it in winter but the weather held out and our guide Micheal made it great and we learnt so much. Still worth it in winter - Both were beautiful!

Incredible Tour Guide Michael

Absolutely loved the tour through Dublin and up the mountains... Michael was so much fun! I’ll dearly hold onto his stories and facts about Ireland and the people. Would definitely recommend! If you come in January like I did then wrap up warm : )

About an hour and a half, maybe a bit more. It really depends on if there have been any delays at Glendalough.

In November the Powerscourt Gardens won`t be as colorful as in summer time, but the park area is nice anyway and I can recommend the lunch - we had the best lunch in Ireland at the Powerscourt Gardens cafe where you have a... More
