Itinerary

8:30am - Pickup from Dublin Suffolk street
Drive out past the Blessington lakes on a scenic tour into Wicklow.
10:00am - Baltinglass
This small  village is home to Baltinglass Abbey, the abbey was founded by Dermot Mac Murrough in the 12th century for the Cistercian order. Its outstanding feature is its arches supported by alternating round and square columns, The architecture is Romanesque. Take your time to explore this ruin, see how many intricate carvings you can find.
10.45pm - Sheep Farm
Meet the friendly local farmer Ed who will take great pleasure in bringing you around his farm. He will inform you on life in the country and the farming practices on his diverse farm from sheep to Hemp not to mention his bulls and cattle. He will give a sheepdog demonstration rounding up a flock of sheep with little more than a few commands.
12.30pm - Lunch
We visit the Glenmalure lodge situated in the Scenic Glenmalure valley. Weather permitting we would recommend sitting in the extensive outdoor area and enjoy the fabulous scenery while having your lunch.
1.45pm - Glendalough
You have an hour and a half to explore this site and its surroundings. The monastic site at Glendalough was founded in the 6th century by saint Kevin but the majority of the buildings standing today date to the 10th and 11th Century. The Abbey itself is impressive but the setting is what sets this Abbey apart from most others in Ireland. The forest walks along the banks of the lake lift your spirits and you realize why Glendalough is called the garden of Ireland.
