Explore the beautiful Wicklow Mountains National Park on a full-day tour from Dublin and enjoy fun outdoor activities such as hill walks, horse rides, and cycling adventures. Hear fascinating stories about the historic region from expert guides and travel in groups of no more than 16 people.

Your first stop will be a lovely spot in the mountains, where you can enjoy outdoor activities such as a 1.5-hour guided hill walk, a horse-riding adventure, or a wonderful cycle. If you want a less energetic experience, visit Powerscourt Gardens and stroll through the delightful Japanese garden.

Continue through the valleys and glens of Wicklow Mountains, stopping at Enniskerry, where the movies P.S. I Love You and Leap Year were filmed. Drive by the ribbon-shaped Lough Tay, and get spectacular mountain views of Sally's Gap and Guinness Lake, location for scenes from the blockbuster films Excalibur and Braveheart.

End your tour at the tiny 6th-century monastery of Glendalough, and learn about the hermit priest, St. Kevin. Here you will have some time to enjoy a walk or just relax in this beautiful spot, known as "the valley of the two lakes", before returning to Dublin.

Beautiful mountains

The best thing of the tour has been our guide, he has been the best! So nice and funny and he knew a lot. I booked the tour with the guided walk, which I think isn't really worth the money... it's really nothing special – just a walk through the woods. I expected something else. Also it says 2 hours when you book but it was only about an hour. I did like the rest of the tour though. The view over the wicklow mountains when you're sitting on the bus is soooo nice! I loved it. Also the walk to the lakes in Glendalough has been nice.

Wonderful tour! The tour guide was great and he even sung a couple of typical Irish songs to entertain us ☺️. The Powerscourt gardens weren’t that spectacular this time of the year and I was a bit disappointed that I couldn’t see the Powerscourt Waterfall. You also spend two hours in these gardens en only 50 minutes at Glendalough, it’s a bit disappointing that they didn’t do it the other way around. Glendalough is amazing and has to get a lot more attention then just the 50 minutes given. But all in all the tour was great: amazing guide, wonderful scenery, beautiful places and amazing views!
