Your guide will be waiting for you at the Dublin cruise terminal, ready for you to begin your marvelous journey. The tour begins by enjoying a drive through the garden of Ireland – Co. Wicklow. With its rolling hills, babbling brooks, and romantic glens one can easily understand how this landscape was a highlight and feature of both Hollywood blockbusters “P.S. I love you” and “Braveheart”. From here, it is onward to Glendalough, made famous by St. Kevin’s monastery, which dates back to the 6th century. The monastic site has Ireland’s finest example of a round tower and you can even try and touch your hands around St. Kevin’s cross. Legend has it that if successful, you will be married within a year.
As you return from Glendalough to the city you will pass by some of Wicklow’s finest mountains where you will have a chance to sample magnificent lakes and rolling turf hills, commonly used as a source of energy in historic Ireland.
After lunch (own expense), or a refreshment stop if your departure has been later, you will be inspired by the sites of Dublin’s fair city. Highlights of Dublin include O’Connell Street, the Ha’Penny bridge, the Temple Bar, Molly Malone statue, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Christchurch Cathedral, Trinity College, and of course time to enjoy some shopping on Grafton Street – home to all the finest traditional luxury stores.
If your ship is departing slightly earlier, the schedule will be adjusted as necessary and get you back in ample time for departure.
