Full description

Explore the beautiful Wicklow Mountains National Park on a full-day tour from Dublin and enjoy fun outdoor activities such as a guided walk. Hear fascinating stories about the historic region from expert guides.

Depending on which option you select, your first stop will be a lovely spot in the mountains, where you can enjoy outdoor activities such as a 1.5-hour guided walk. If you want a less energetic experience, visit Powerscourt Gardens and stroll through the delightful Japanese garden. Continue through the valleys and glens of Wicklow Mountains, stopping at Enniskerry, where the movies "P.S. I Love You" and "Leap Year" were filmed.

Drive by the ribbon-shaped Lough Tay, and get spectacular mountain views of Sally's Gap and Guinness Lake, locations for scenes from the blockbuster films Excalibur and Braveheart. End your tour at the tiny 6th-century monastery of Glendalough, and learn about the hermit priest, St. Kevin. Here you will have some time to enjoy a walk or just relax in this beautiful spot, known as "the valley of the two lakes", before returning to Dublin.

Matt was one of the best tour guides, and I’d highly recommend him in the future. He’s extremely knowledgeable about the history of Ireland, and he shares that history in an easily understandable way — such that you’re continuing to pay attention to learn more, rather than zoning out. He has a gift with his storytelling ability (except the stories he’s sharing are true to history!). I also appreciated how approachable he was, naturally making light conversation with the passengers in our van. I felt terrible at the end when I realized I didn’t have enough cash as change to properly tip him, so I really hope this review helps things just a bit… as he is truly one of the best!

Well-planned tour with an amazing guide. Matt told us so many interesting facts about Ireland that we didn't know what to google first. He took the liberty to change our route slightly and it was worth it! We would recommend Hilltoptreks to anyone looking for a great tour and would book them again!

very nice tour. First it goes to the Powerscourt House & Gardens, where the gardens and a distillery can be visited. Then drive through the Wicklow Mountains with a stop at Guinness Lake/Lough Tay as a famous film backdrop. Then Glendalough will be visited. The tour was conducted by minibus, we were 7 people in the tour. good guide
