Dublin's beautiful south coast is seen at its best from a double-deck touring bus. Along the great sweep of Dublin Bay, past Dun Laoghaire's elegant promenade and yacht-filled harbour, to James Joyce's Tower at Sandycove, the sea views are unsurpassed.
Turning inland, the tour climbs into the beautiful Wicklow Mountains and continues through the enchanting old-world village of Enniskerry to Powerscourt House and Gardens. The estate, in its spectacular mountain setting, is among the finest in Europe and has featured in many films including Mel Gibson's "Braveheart". You'll have lots of time to explore the grounds to see the Italian, Japanese and walled gardens or browse the renowned Avoca Handweavers shop and cafe.
Before returning to Dublin the tour passes through the dramatic geographical fault known as "The Scalp" and the ever-changing scenery of the Wicklow and Dublin mountains.
