Your Wicklow Tour starts with a visit to the James Joyce Tower, where Joyce lived briefly. It was the inspiration for the opening setting of Ulysses. Originally known as a Martello Tower, it was built in 1804 to defend against invasion by Napoleon. Today it is home to a museum dedicated to James Joyce, and climbing the tower gives magnificent views of Dublin Bay.
Then, the tour travels south to County Wicklow, also known as "The Garden of Ireland." The first stop is Powerscourt House and Gardens. Powerscourt is one of the most beautiful country estates in Ireland. Situated in the mountains of Wicklow, it was originally an important strategic site for the Anglo-Normans who came to Ireland in the 12th century. By the year 1300, a castle had been built and was in the possession of the le Poer (Power) family, from which it takes its name. With its adjoining 18th century gardens, Powerscourt is one of the finest examples of a stately home in Ireland.
From Powerscourt, you will travel to the magnificent monastic settlement of Glendalough. Glendalough, or the Glen of Two Lakes, is one of the most important sites of monastic ruins in Ireland. It is also known as the city of the seven Churches. This site was founded by St. Kevin in the 6th Century and was a centre of early Christian learning until its demise in 1214 at the hands of the Normans. The two lakes, which gave the valley its name, came into existence thousands of years ago, after the Ice Age. The mountain streams eventually formed a large lake. Before the arrival of St. Kevin, this valley would have been desolate and remote. The Visitor Centre has an interesting exhibition and an audio-visual show.
Your tour continues through the Wicklow Mountains via Sally Gap, admiring the beauty of the mountains which were formed 400 million years ago with the collision of the continental plates of North America and Europe. The Wicklow Mountains are part of a granite mass which is the largest in north-western Europe.
