Combine Ireland's stunning coastal and mountain scenery on this lovely rail tour from Dublin. You'll travel through the magical Wicklow Mountains, visit the traditional town of Avoca and explore the ancient monastic settlement at Glendalough. This scenic coach and rail trip from Dublin shows you the best of Ireland in one day.

Departing from Dublin Connolly Station, you'll travel by train (snack bar onboard) to village of Rathdrum, incorporating a journey into the heart of County Wicklow. Taking a stunning scenic coastal route you'll pass the magnificent Killiney Bay, a must-see Irish beauty-spot framed by the Great Sugar Loaf Mountain, and the sriking Bray Head hill. From here, your train tour swings inland to the mountains of County Wicklow, where you'll experience the 'Garden of Ireland' at its best!

On arrival at the village of Rathdrum, you'll join the coach for a journey through the Vale of Avoca. In the lovely village of Avoca (where the BBC series Ballykissangel was filmed) you can see famous Avoca wool-weavers at work and spend time at leisure.
