Dublin to Glendalough

Your shore tour departs from your ship at the port of Dublin to journey our way through Wicklow also known as *The Garden of Ireland".

Absorb the stunning scenery, beautiful lakes and dense rich forests as we make our way through the Wicklow countryside towards Glendalough.

This monastic site dates back to 600 AD and it played an important role in reintroducing Christianity after the Dark Ages. St. Kevin founded his monastery and round tower here, this later developed into Ireland's most important Monastic city.

Thousands of visitors have come to visit and worship at this site over the centuries possibly due to a Pope saying " Seven visits to Glendalough is the same indulgence as one visit to Rome".

Glendalough to Dublin

Enroute back to Dublin we'll visit the breathtaking Sally Gap and Lough Tay also known as Guinness Lake for its dark waters and white sand beach. This brings your Irish adventure to an end as we transport you back to Dublin after a day full of great memories.

When you book your private shore tour & driver/guide with us, we can adapt the tour to suit your ship times.

St. Kevin

Born around 498 AD, Kevin was said to have been of noble birth. Once he was ordained as a Bishop he moved to Glendalough and lived in a bronze age Tomb know as St. Kevin's Bed which can still be seen today.

St. Kevin’s fame as a teacher and holy man quickly spread throughout Ireland. The monastic settlement at Glendalough soon grew to become one of the great spiritual centres of Christianity in Ireland that flourished for thousands of years after St. Kevin’s death.
