This tour visits the village of Avoca, known as Ballykissangel, and Avoca Handweavers, the oldest working woolen mill. Treat yourself to some of the vibrant coloured handcrafts as you wander.

Avoca Handweavers - GlendaloughFull day tour

Regarded as one of the one most stunning train routes in Ireland, the train journey hugs the coastline as it travels towards Bray and Greystones along the coast and cliff edge. From Arklow, the tour continues by coach onto Avoca Handweavers for a personal tour of the oldest working woolen mill, first established in 1723.

Our lunch stop is at a local pub, Fitzgeralds of Avoca, which serves up hearty Irish pub fare. Avoca is sometimes known as Ballykissangel, where the successful BBC television series of the same name was filmed. Our next stop is Glendalough, a twelfth-century monastic settlement. We take you to the Upper Lake of Glendalough – this was the original site of the monastic settlement, and features Reefert Church, Temple-na-Skellig, St. Kevin’s Cell, St. Kevin’s Bed, the Caher, and various crosses. We then walk back along the boardwalk to the Monastic City where you can see ruins of churches, a graveyard and the famous Round Tower.

The tour then continues through the stunning landscape of Wicklow before your return journey to Dublin.
