Scenery overall and guide were great. The hike was underwhelming as far as views due to rain. The aging vans are very difficult to see out of.

Would not recommend this tour company.

We paid for the Powerscourt tour. When we arrived at Powerscourt, the guide said the “hill walk” was a way better tour. And it was only 10 Euros (cash) more per person, so we did that on his recommendation.. Was a waste of time. Missed Powerscourt. Would NOT recommend this tour company.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Thank you for the review. I’m very surprised by this and I imagine your guide gave you a choice. You would of had to pay into the gardens anyway. This is very odd and I will check with your guide about this.

Great day out in the mountains
Ingrid_T

Great combination of both Powerscourt and Glendalough! Our tour guide was very knowledgable and relaxed. The gardens in Powerscourt are gorgeous, especially now with the tulips in full bloom. Well worth a visit. I have been to Glendalough before and It is a special place. Like all other tours I’ve been on, the tour gives you 1,5 hour at the monastic site and that is just a bit short. But all in all we had a great day in the mountains.

Not only were the views stunning but our guide Robert was excellent. He came with jokes and great knowledge about where we went and what we passed on the way. Highly recommend especially because with this tour you aren’t trying to shuffle your way in and out of an entire bus.

Powers Court was gorgeous. The trip was a nice balance of commentary and time to explore the grounds of the botanic garden. Glendalough was great as well. Just enough time. Really enjoyed the small group experience.

It was a misty day, but that gave a lovely, slightly haunted feeling to the Powerscourt Gardens, even in the mist it was fantastic! The sun was out and shining for Lough Tay and Glendalough, both were wonderful! The tour is nicely paced, you don’t feel rushed at any of the visits. Richard was an engaging and knowledgeable guide!

Our guide, Richard, was very knowledgeable and witty. Couldn’t have had a better day while touring County Wicklow. Powerscourt Gardens we’re beautiful even for this time of year and what a treat to see where they film Kattegat for the Vikings show.
