Hi Helen I will be in Ireland for two days, arriving on a Saturday morning and leaving Sunday night. I am thinking of maybe doing a half day tour outside the city area. Did your tour start in the morning or mid day? Also what time did you get back to the city? Cheers Jem

Is the road on the 1/2 day Wicklow/Glendalough tour very windy/curvy? Somewhat prone to car sickness.
