Highly recommend this tour/company to get away from the busy hustle and bustle of Dublin Centre. Our tour guide was fantastic; Janine was very accommodating and friendly. As there was only a small group of 9 of us, it felt much more personalised. We stopped in Glendalough to begin, with a 1.5hour walking tour, including the Monastery & the Lake - this gave us the real Irish experience. We were told about lots of Irish myths & stories, from the Celts etc. Really beautiful scenery & walks!! Following this, we had lunch in the hotel by the lake - then spent the afternoon visiting key sights, such as the Guinness Lake, Powerscourt Waterfall and the P.S. I love you bridge (this was awesome!) - be prepared with walking shoes or good boots - I had wet feet in trainers by the end of the day! And wrap up warm!! (Although there is enough time on the bus between walks to warm up).
4 stars as the end of the day we had 1.5hours at Powerscourt Gardens which seemed a bit of an anticlimax at the end of a really fantastic day! Still, highly recommend - each time is different and they tailor the tours to their groups! Top Tip; go on a day when sky's are clear & perhaps a little warmer!

We went in february, on the wiklow mountain was crazily cold! The guide was very nice and friendly , the landscapes are very nice, we got sunny weather and it was amazing!
I don't think would be a good idea to go when it's raining.
Guinness lake was the best place ever!
A bit expensive.. you could rent a car and be free to go wherever u want! Much better i think

Booked a transfer to take us to Wicklow Mountain and to see the lake at the top. It was very very cold and you had ice all around you but the landscape is beautiful. We saw the P.S. I love you bridge and the Guinness Lake and took some breathtaking pictures at the top lake. Well worth the visit. There is a pub called Johnny Fox that is amazing! The food is excelent and a very good price. We left Dublin center at 8AM and got back at 5PM

We took the Grayline day tour of Wicklow on a 'soft irish day', meaning it was foggy and wet unfortunately, however our driver Eoin was fantastic, he kept us entertained for the entire day with his wit and wisdom of wicklow and beyond, though you couldn't see the views - you could picture them through the narrative. Great driver, great stories, great craic. Recommended to all

I booked a 8-hour tour in Wicklow mountains which included 2 hours of horse riding but it turned out that we spent most of the time in the coach and the horse riding was 45 minute of training inside the stables and half an hour in a field close to the stables and not in the mountains. This activity do not worth the money I payed
Nevertheless, the guide and the staff of the stables are very nice people and the National park of Wicklow is amazing.
I suggest to check out the weather forecast and do not go in cloudy or rainy days

I'm very sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the tour. The stables do need assess the riders before bringing them out on the track for their personal safety. Maybe the weather wasn't great but very little we can do about that. We do the tour the other way round so activities in the afternoon if the weather is looking better then.
