Marvel at the stunning views of the untamed Irish landscape as you follow in the footsteps of film stars at Sally's Gap. Wander through the mystic 6th-century Glendalough monastery and taste some traditional Irish whiskey.
Start with a short tour through Dublin's city center and listen to your guide narrate its highlights. Then a scenic drive along mountain-hugging roads takes you past Dún Laoghaire Harbor, Sandycove, and Dalkey. After a short stop in Avoca—home to the oldest wool mill in Ireland—your tour continues toward Wicklow County to visit the ruins of the 6th-century Glendalough monastery.
Follow your guide and explore the enchanting monastic settlement, learn the history of the place and its many tales of saints and scholars, and stop by the iconic Round Tower for a memorable picture. Take a stroll toward the Upper Lake and breathe in the magnificence of the woods surrounding you.
Your tour ends on a high note with a dram of Irish whiskey and a visit to Sally's Gap for a last peek of the breathtaking landscape, which was used to recreate a bit of Scotland during the filming of Braveheart.
