Glendalough and Avoca Day Trip from Dublin



Description

Take the scenic route out of Dublin, passing through the Wicklow Gap and Blessington Lakes to lovely Glendalough and the pretty village of Avoca. This scenic day trip is the perfect excursion from Dublin, filled with picture-postcard views of Ireland at its best.

The BBC series Ballykissangel was filmed in the lovely village of Avoca, and you will have time to check out the familiar sites such as Fitzgerald's pub and the Post Office. You'll also have time to visit the Avoca Handweavers and craft shop, reputed to be the oldest weaving mill in Ireland.

Then it's on to the tour's other highlight, Glendalough, the 'glen of the two lakes'. The ancient monastic settlement of Glendalough is a truly spellbinding place, home to the impressive 10th-century Round Tower.
