Our walking day tours are ideal for exploring the area on Dublin’s doorstep. All of them include a guided walk between mountains and sea. Meet the guide in Dublin City Center and travel with her by public transport to the start of the walk and back. This is a unique opportunity for exploring off the beaten track itineraries where tourists don't usually venture and for getting a chance to meet the friendly locals.
Walking day tours to Glendalough
Leaving behind Dublin’s green suburbs, the bus travels through lush countryside toward the Wicklow Mountains. The valley of Glendalough lies at the heart of Wicklow Mountains National Park. It is well-known for its magnificent landscapes and its two lakes. It is also home to a once famous monastery and its round tower. After a guided tour of the Monastic Site, we start on our walk around the valley, enjoying its lovely trails meandering through beautiful forests.
Walking day tours – Victorian Trails, Coastal Walks
We travel to the start of the afternoon walk by taxi. The trail leads to a small clearing where we can look at the ruins of the Giant’s Grave, built some 4000 years ago. The path leading to Fairy Castle follows the edge of the forest and we can already enjoy magnificent perspectives over the over the countryside and the mountains. after reaching the top, we walk down to Three Rock Mountain from where we can enjoy stunning views over Dublin and its bay.
As we travel with the train to Greystones, we can enjoy stunning views over the sea and the coast. The Cliff walk which links Greystones to the seaside town of Brayl goes up through lush meadows but as it starts going down toward Bray, the landscape changes dramatically. The trail was carved out of the steep slopes of Bray Head when the railway line was built. Overlooking the railway line and the sea, it offers magnificent views over the rugged coastline.
