Travel to Glendalough ("The glen of two lakes"), home to 6th century monastic ruins, via the plush hills of County Wicklow. Your tour begins with a narrated drive to Dublin for a brief panoramic drive before continuing to County Wicklow, famed as the "Garden of Ireland." You will travel into the green and uncrowded Wicklow Mountains and arrive in Glendalough, a monastic settlement founded by St. Kevin. The ruins, tucked into a glen with two small lakes, include the remains of early churches, a roofless cathedral and a well-preserved round tower dating back from the 10th century. After a special audiovisual presentation, you will board your motorcoach for your return drive through the Wicklow Hills and the rugged landscape of the Vale of Clara, home to the smallest village in Ireland.

Special Notes:

Glendalough is pronounced "glen-da-lock."
