This luxury tour offers you the chance to experience the contrast of buzzing Dublin city and the rural and scenic Wicklow mountains – all in one day. Relax as you enjoy the exclusive services of a local tour guide and the comfort of a private, luxury vehicle for today's excursion.
  • Departure

    Your guide will be waiting for you at the Dublin Cruise terminal – its then time to board your luxury private hire car for a day of exploring!

  • Wicklow mountains

    We begin the day by driving south of Dublin, to Co. Wicklow (often referred to as 'The Garden of Ireland'). Enjoy an enchanting drive through the Wicklow mountains – which you might recognize as the location of Hollywood hits such as 'P.S. I Love You' and 'Braveheart'.

  • Glendalough

    Arriving at Glendalough, you'll have plenty of time to experience this beautiful glacial valley – which was the site of an ancient monastic settlement founded by St. Kevin in the 6th century. Be sure to photograph the ancient round tower and signature Celtic crosses as your guide explains the enchanting history of the site to you. Stretch your legs with a walk through the forest to the Glendalough lake – we guarantee that the views here will blow you away!

  • Dublin City

    A scenic drive through the heart of Co. Wicklow, through charming villages and deserted boglands, takes us back to Dublin city – where you'll have time for lunch, or refreshments – depending on the time of your tour. Ireland's capital city is steeped in history and culture and your guide will be on hand to point out highlights including the Ha'penny Bridge, St. Patrick's and Christ Church Cathedrals, Trinity College and the iconic Dublin Spire. Dublin's streets are home to some fantastic live music – which will make your visit to the city that little bit more atmospheric. Take some time to stroll through the winding ancient streets – lined with boutique shopping, world-class cuisine and of course – a few pubs!

  • Return to the boat

    Following your leisurely visit to Dublin city – enjoy a relaxing, short transfer back to the Dublin Cruise terminal, in good time for your ship's departure time.

The recent strength of USD vs EUR means that travelers from the United States to Europe are currently finding the best value in over 20 years when booking their upcoming travel arrangements.

The Irish economy has by now recovered from the pandemic and there is full employment in the country. However, many drivers left the tourism industry during the lockdowns and there is consequently a shortage of chauffeurs.

Also, the conflict between Russia and Ukraine on Europe's Eastern border is leading to shortages and price increases throughout Europe. Although Ireland is on Europe's western edge, far from the fighting, we have not been immune to the related inflation.

European gasoline prices are increasing and hotels and B&Bs in many regional towns are already full through the first half of 2023 as the Irish government hosts tens of thousands of women and children refugees from the conflict.

With these factors in mind, we recommend placing a deposit to fix your tour price as soon as you have decided upon dates - as prices are likely to rise in the coming months.

Please don't hesitate to ask about our competitive deposit and cancellation terms.
