Had a great time! Very beautiful part of the country, guide was great (Godfrey). Not necessarily a criticism just a suggestion, I’d love if there was an option to take a tour that just explored more of Wicklow as this was my reason for joining the tour. There currently aren’t any group options for such a tour.
