My husband and I would highly recommend this tour! The Wicklow Mountains are on your doorstop, and a fantastic break from the city, a chance to see the valleys and glens, the stunning landscape of Wicklow with it's blazing oranges, yellows and browns, and the forever alluring 'Emerald Green' of Ireland. We did the guided group walk, a couple of girls from the group went horse riding of which they loved! We were very fortunate to have had the perfect weather in late November, crisp and cold, with beautiful sunshine, and blue, clear skies! We were a small group of about 14 which was an ideal size as gave us the flexibility see see some places along the way that we don't think we would have been able to see if we'd been on a large coach for instance!! Led by our Irish guide, Michael who was hugely experienced, great fun, very informative, approachable, attentive, flexible, easy going, and generally good craic! He even had spare waterproof/windbreaker jackets for us, if needed! Do wrap up warm, and be waterproofed to enjoy fully at this time of year. Thanks to Michael we went hillwalking, through some amazing woodland, and moorland scenery, breathtaking in fact. Ate homecooked food at Poppies. Saw an old lead mine.. still standing! The peaceful Glencree. The magical Glendalough, and perfect Guinness Lake with the creamy, velvety top... makes you want to scoop a pint up right there and then! The source of the River Liffey! Arthur Guinness territory. Enniskerry, the 'P.S. I Love You' film location.....when Gerry meets Holly who is lost. I'm a big fan so thank you Michael, you even had the soundtrack!! A wonderful day which ended in singing Irish songs all the way back to Dublin, worth every cent. We have enthused about the trip ever since, so thank you! Kostas & Laura-Lee x

If you're looking to get out in the fresh air and see some beautiful sights of Ireland this is for you. We hopped in a van and went to the park from PS I Love You where they meet. This area is breath taking. Even though it was not quite the season for the fields to be painted with purple it was still amazing. You get to see Guinness Lake and some pretty popular attractions for Ireland. We walked up a hill or small mountain and stood on top soaking it all in.

The guide was great. Very good at providing info and keeping the day fun. I would recommend this to everybody. I may go back and do this again sometime in the future during the summer time.

Worth the money.

The tour was beautiful, organized, and so much fun! Since transportation can be so expensive, we would have never got to see all that we did without going on the tour! Although it was a little rushed, our tour guide was just trying to share everything possible with us, which we appreciated! Lunch is not included, although you do stop at a great little place to eat. The other thing that could make it better would making lunch included (increasing the price) so you literally don't have to worry about anything! I would definitely do the tour again. Prices were worth every penny.

Hi, Im delighted that you enjoyed the tour and thank you for your great review.
We found that offering a lunch option was too tricky as people would have different choices and others would bring there own.... this is why we stop in Enniskerry with plenty of choices on places to eat. Terry.

The overall tour was good, you get some beautiful pictures and interesting information. Unfortunately you sit in the bus most of the time except for some stops to take pictures. it was good for us because it was freezing cold outside but for warm days I would rather do something else
