Glendalough, Powerscourt & the Wicklow Mountains Small-Group Day Trip from Dublin

You leave Dublin at 9.15am. Your first stop of the day is at the Powerscourt House and Gardens.  You can wander through the manicured lawns, explore an ornate Japanese garden and gaze into the rooms of a masterly mansion. It’s a house that rivals the finest manors in England. From here, we journey south to Avoca village, a place made famous in song by Irish Poet, Thomas Moore.

Here you have time take a pilgrimage up to the lovely lakes, praise the history at a visitor centre and bask in the serenity of the monastic city ruins. Next, you can grab a picture of Ireland’s ‘Guinness Lake’, but don’t expect a lake full of creamy beer. It’s a scenic lake on the land the Guinness family own that looks a little like a pint.
