Get your ticket, kick back, relax, and let the fun begin.

You’ll be greeted by your local guide, who’s not just your tour guide but your new best buddy for the day. Get comfy because you’ll be departing on a journey you won’t forget!

As we leave the city behind, we’ll cruise along the picturesque coast until we reach Killiney Hill. Here, you’ll have the chance to stretch your legs on a short walk (about 30 minutes) while soaking in jaw-dropping views of Dublin Bay – Ireland’s very own bay of Naples!

But wait, there’s more fun to come! We’ll make a pit stop at Avoca Handweavers Kilmacanogue, where you can refuel with a delicious morning coffee or explore the beautiful grounds at your leisure.

Next up, it’s time to head into the real Wild Wicklow as we drive through Enniskerry Village and head to Sally Gap. Get ready to be wowed by the rugged beauty of Wicklow – think lakes, mountains, and boglands that’ll leave you speechless. And yes, you bet we’ll be stopping for plenty of Insta-worthy photos along the way!

Feeling hungry? The charming village of Laragh has got you covered. Take your pick from a range of lunch options, from hearty Beef & Guinness Stew to cute little tea rooms and cafes. Yum!

Now, onto one of the highlights of the tour – Glendalough! Explore the ancient monastic site with our expert guide, then enjoy some quiet time as you stroll along the serene tree-lined path to the Upper Lake. Ah, 90 minutes of pure bliss!

But wait, there’s one last treat in store for you! Hop back on board our luxury coach and get ready to raise a glass – we’re serving up complimentary tastings of Jameson Whiskey to toast an epic day of adventure.
