I was looking for a half day tour and came across this one. So glad I did because this was a great tour to kick off our trip. Our tour guide Jackie and Matty were great! It was informative as well as entertaining. Loved that they had a good sense of humor and played great music in between. Group was pretty small, about 25-30 people, and had plenty of space in the bus. The bus was comfortable and roomy. Such a fun tour! Overall a great tour experience. I definitely recommend this half-day tour for those who want to take an enjoyable tour, but have limited time. 😀

We loved our trip to Glendalough and Wicklow. Great guide and beautiful scenery. Nice viewpoint of the mountains and enough time to explore the monastery and the lake and waterfall. Our only regret was not having cash or coins for a tip as we had just arrived in country and hadn't thought about tipping

Glendalough is very picturesque with many photo opportunities. Our guide was very knowledgeable and we appreciated the opportunity to wander on our own at our own speed.

The driver was also the tour guide but didn't tell very much. Also very rushed and one of the elements named in the tour was just a stop at the top of the road. It was the main reason for me to book but a disappointment this way. Glendalough was nice though.

The perfect half day tour. Josh was a great guide, very knowledgeable and entertaining. Decklin was a good bus driver. The hiking and scenery were the perfect thing to do in the morning. Just be sure to book Paddy wagon tours through their website because they don't function well with Viator.

Too Rushed
Eliot_H

We were told by Viator agent that this would be a tour with no more than 16 passengers. Instead, this tour was a full bus (~60). There are only 2 sites on this tour, the scenic falls and the monastic city. The guide suggested we would not have enough time to do hike to falls. So we rushed the hike and spent almost no time in monastic city. The tour needs to be an hour longer to see both sites in reasonable time.

Long bus ride and short park visit. Nice to get outside of Dublin for the morning but time in the park was insufficient.

Fun Excursion Outside Dublin

Nice half day outside of Dublin. About 90min to get there but had a solid 90min once we arrived to walk around the park. Beautiful area. Unfortunately it was a pretty rainy day so we were soaked and the views weren’t as good but would recommend it especially for families who enjoy hiking and nature.

Glendalough was lovely, could have had a little longer there. I think the main impovement would be more Irish history/stories/songs on route there. More info on where we were visitning.

Better to do the full day. Half a day was not enough by the time you drive there. Glendalough is beautiful and I'm going to come back with hiking gear and do the 4+ hours hikes. We didn't stop in Wicklow at all, I thought we would stop at "Guinness lake". You need more time to really enjoy.
