Richard and Joe are the absolute best! I greatly enjoyed the stories, information, expertise, adhd humor that they both brought. The scenery was beautiful and I feel like I got a glimpse of the real Ireland. By the end of the day both Richard and Joe felt like friends and as someone traveling alone, it was nice to feel the friendship for the day.

Wicklow Mountain Scenery

From bog lands to heather fields, stunning mountain landscapes awaits at the Wicklow Mountains. The park features Glencree Valley and Sally Gap, in addition to one of Ireland’s highest waterfalls, Powerscourt. Other must-see spots include theP.S. I Love You Bridge; Powerscourt Gardens at the Powerscourt Estate; the Wicklow Gap, where much ofBraveheartwas filmed; and Lough Tay, also known as Guinness Lake. Many tours include nature walks with a tour guide, and some allow for exploring nearby medieval villages such as Kilkenny and the round tower at the Glendalough Monastic Settlement, founded by St. Kevin in the sixth century. Because there’s so much natural beauty to take in at the national park, it’s recommended that you spend a full day here.
