Wicklow Day Tour - Irish Day Tours
Dublin City, Co. Dublin
Let Irish Day Tours take you on an adventure to Wicklow, the garden county of Ireland. This tour from Dublin lets you experience life on a working Irish farm and explore the beautiful monastic site of Glendalough, a day mixed with nature and history.

This tour is designed to show you the beauty and history of Wicklow.

Departing Dublin, enjoy views of Blessington Lakes as you make your way towards Baltinglass Abbey, which was founded in 1148 by the King of Leinster, Dermot MacMurrough. Explore this interesting site for 1 hour.

Next, meet local farmer Ed who will show you around his working farm and introduce you to his sheepdogs. Watch as Ed directs the dogs with little commands or whistles and be sure to have your camera ready.

The scenic village of Laragh is your next stop where you'll find shops, a restaurant and a coffee shop. It is located in the heart of the Uplands.

Glendalough is the last stop of the day, the most popular for most. You have a full 1.5 hours to explore the monastic settlement founded in the 6th century by St Kevin. The setting amongst the mountains and the lakes is what sets this monastery apart from every other. Take a stroll and enjoy this magical area.

Why we like it
  • This is an excellent way to immerse yourself in Wicklow's stunning ancient historical sites and natural beauty.
  • This tour arrives at Glendalough in the afternoon, and so avoids the morning crowds.
  • The sheepdog demonstration is something special.
  • The tour does not require long periods of bus travel as County Wicklow is quite close to Dublin.
