Description

South Coast & Powerscourt Gardens Breathtaking gardens and an ancient village highlight this scenic Dublin tour. Travel down the southern coast from Dublin into jaw-dropping mountains. Climb aboard a double-decker bus for unrestricted views of the spectacular coastline. Your professional guide entertains and informs you about the Powerscourt Gardens and Estate and the ancient village of Glendalough. This tour is ideal for photographers and anyone looking for picturesque views of Ireland's natural beauty. Leaving Dublin, your tour begins with a trip through the Docklands area, along the coastline heading south, past Sandymount Strand, made famous by James Joyce's Ulysses. Enjoy amazing views of Dublin Bay and Dún Laoghaire harbor before turning inland and upward into the Wicklow Mountains. Your first stop of the tour is the palatial Powerscourt Estate, a former 13th century castle resting on 47 acres. Named number three of the Top 10 Gardens in the World by National Geographic, these gardens will amaze you with their photogenic life. Maintained in exquisite fashion, these elaborate gardens feature a wide variety of trees, shrub, and flowers, including Italian and Japanese Gardens. You'll also note a collection of statuary and ironwork from across Europe. You will be free to explore the grounds at your leisure, including shops featuring Irish knits, jewelry, children's gifts, and snacks. Following the visit to Powerscourt, travel to the ancient village of Glendalough. This town is famous for being founded by St. Kevin as a monastic village in the 6th century. Enjoy an hour of exploring the church, cathedral, and surrounding area. Make sure to take in the breathtaking views of nearby lakes and mountain before re-boarding your bus and continuing your tour back up the coast to Dublin. This Dublin tour takes 6.5 hours. Following this tour, you are entitled to an optional second bus tour around Dublin that allows you to hop on and off at your leisure to explore other sights, including the Dublin Zoo, Trinity College, the Guinness Storehouse, and Dublin's Docklands.
