We will be traveling to Wicklow for about ten days in early July. We will base out of the Powerscourt Hotel.
This is our first visit to Ireland but we do not want to race around the country trying to hit as many sights as possible. My teenaged son (17), husband and I would like to get to have a relaxing trip and soak up the local culture.
That said, we would like to plan a couple of day trips within 2-4 hours by car. We will return to our hotel every day.
We are also interested in day trips by boat and would like to know which is best. We plan to go into Dublin a few times but I would love to find boat outings that depart from near Powerscourt rather than Dublin if those exist.
