Thursday, October 19th: WEXFORD – WICKLOW – DUBLIN

  • Breakfast at hotel
  • Visit Glendalough Visitor Centre
    Famed for its beautiful scenery and historic monuments, Glendalough has been a centre for pilgrims and visitors from the time of the founding of its monastery by St. Kevin in the 6th Century. The present remains tell only a small part of the monastic story. The buildings which survived, probably date from between the 8th and 12th Centuries, the most notable being a superb Round-Tower, Cathedral, Stone churches and decorated crosses.
  • Visit Powerscourt House & Gardens
    Situated in the foothills of the Wicklow mountains, it is a sublime blend of formal gardens, sweeping terraces, sanctuary and ornamental lakes with secret hollows, rambling walks, walled gardens and over 200 variations of trees and shrubs. The newly renovated 18th-century house. Powerscourt Gardens in County Wicklow is one of the most beautiful gardens in Ireland! The gardens at Powerscourt were laid out over two main periods. Many of the people involved in their creation and development never saw the gardens completed in their lifetime. When the house was rebuilt in the decade after 1731, the surrounding grounds were also remodelled. The design reflected the desire to create a garden that was part of the wider landscape. And what a view it is! To the north, formal tree plantations framed the vista from the house, while a walled garden, fish pond, cascades, grottos and terraces lay to the south. Walks wound through the wooded grounds and a fine tree-lined avenue was created. When you arrive at the tree-lined avenue today, hundreds of beech trees will guide your visit.
  • Dinner & Show at The Merry Ploughboy
    Widely regarded as the best traditional music show in Dublin. A highly entertaining performance of live traditional Irish Music, Song and Irish Dancing. The very best fresh Irish food is served from our restaurant which offers a choice menu.
  • Overnight at hotel
