The magnificent Wicklow Mountains National Park, covering most of County Wicklow in the east of Ireland, makes for a fabulous coach holiday destination.
One of Ireland’s scenic jewels, stunning mountains, hills and picturesque rivers and lakes are the reason it is often called ‘The Garden of Ireland’. Its large areas of mountain blanket bogs and forestry plantations are home to rare flowers and beautiful birds of prey, with gushing streams and untamed landscapes at every turn.

The most visited place in the area is lovely Glendalough, where the ancient monastic settlement of St Kevin is located and the impressive 10th century Round Tower.
Visit the picturesque village of Avoca, setting of TV’s Ballykissangel or Sallys Gap, where film makers brought a little of Scotland to Ireland when filming Braveheart.
On a coach break to this part of Ireland you can experience a sense of peace and isolation, or enjoy the ‘crac’ in the many traditional Irish pubs in the area. Whichever you choose, an enjoyable and memorable experience is assured.
