What people are saying about County Wicklow

Our guide, Gillian, could not have been better. She was knowledgeable, friendly, and full of incredibly interesting tidbits about the area and its history. Her stories really brought things to life, but she also gave us freedom to roam and see things without any pressure. I can’t stress enough how very much we enjoyed this trip - and with three generations along that is truly saying something! Thanks again!!

Brian is an excellent host and guide! I was traveling with my two 77 year old parents, and he was very accommodating, as to their wishes and limitations. The vehicle was very clean and well maintained. My family still can't figure out how he magically appeared to get us loaded up after completing one of our activities. Thanks again Brian!
