Enjoy a day in some of Ireland’s most beautiful countryside as you explore Country Wicklow. After a train ride down the coast, head inland to see the quaint villages of Avoca and Glendalough. Witness the age-old tradition of hand weaving in Avoca, a town popularized on television.
Escape the capital's lively atmosphere and take the train south along County Wicklow’s stunning railway line, which runs parallel to the Irish Sea coast. Board a coach in Arklow and travel through the stunning Vale of Avoca toward the village of Avoca, known as the home to Ballykissangel, a successful Irish TV show. Alight here and take some free time at lunch to admire Avoca Handweavers—one of the world’s oldest manufacturing companies and Ireland’s oldest surviving business.
Continue to Glendalough—“The Glen of Two Lakes”—a picturesque setting in which to spend the afternoon. Learn of its monastic history as you soak up the mountainous views. Return by train to Dublin by late afternoon.
