What a fantastic tour! Well worth it. Our driver Eoin was the best! He was so knowledgeable and shared stories and info all along the way. He kept everyone's attention and made the trip so much more enjoyable. The stops were so scenic. Guinness Lake was beautiful and the walk down the trails in Glendalough was amazing. It was a fantastic way to spend the day today.

I almost hate to give this such a positive review because I think the experience is nearly ruined by the crowds...but it really is beautiful and I do hope the people engaged in Irish tourism make a lot of money off all us tourists - and it encourages them to preserve this stunning countryside.

Wonderful experience, the comedy started the second we entered the bus. Eoin has a nice kind of humor and even more special: he talked 8 hours straight without nonsense (well OK a little bit sometimes). It made a seemingly boring bus drive to some trees (sorry girlfriend) so much easier to endure, time flew by! The trip itself is wonderful, lots of different sights. The tour guide had in-depth information about local sites as well, so with every piece of road we learned a bit more. I would highly recommend this tour!

Just returned from a grand full day tour from The Wicklow Mountains. The weather was warm and (mostly) sunny, and the scenery beautiful - but the day was made by the irrepressible EoinP (the man, the legend), our driver & narrator for the day - the guy is a HOOT! We're not quite sure how he keeps it coming, but he's just a non-stop raconteur: the locals, the sights, random joggers, other motorists, history, politics, economics, flora & fauna - it's all great craic & seemingly bottomless...we came away with a renewed appreciation for Dublin, the Irish and the local culture in general.Do not hesitate to take this trip - and if you're lucky enough to find Eoin in the driving seat, then you can rest assured that you're all set up for a great day out. Highly Recommended.

We never had so much fun doing a guided tour before, we saw amazing landscape, we learned a ton about Ireland from its past to present day, not only facts but also funny stories and legends, we had an amazing lunch at a beautiful little town, it was maybe from our 4 day trip to Ireland the best one and it was all thanks to Eoin, he was our driver and tour guide, he does an amazing job, and you can see that there is certain passion to the way he tells you every story or every fact, and the best thing is that he is so funny, it definitely makes you pay more attention to every date or name that he mentions, he makes the ride very enjoyable, he has an incredible knowledge of the country, specially about the flora, it was definitely a great experience, I never thought a guided tour could be so much fun, it has been usually for me all about the information and the viewsPaul, next time I visit Dublin I know exactly where to go who to ask for!

We had a wonderful time today touring the Wicklow Mountains and Glendalough with our witty and knowledgeable guide/driver Eoin. He made the trip twice as enjoyable with his humour and anecdotes. He went above and beyond to make this tour fun for everyone. Would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this tour.

We decided to go with the tour to Wicklow mountains, and I’m so happy we did! Not only was the scenery breathtaking and the weather outstanding, the tour guide (Eoin) was crazy good and you could really tell he loves his job. Very informative and a lot of fun. I’ve never had a tour guide talk that much and still everything he had to say was interesting. Thank you so much Eoin, hope you have nice summer!

I was BEYOND delighted with this tour. Eoin really exceeded my expectations. He took us on a walking tour at Gendalough. He made us origami celtic crosses. He knew SO much about edible plants and even did some foraging. He was good nature and a fountain of information. Clearly, he knew Wicklow well and loved ahowing it to us. Really couldn't imagine a better experience. Tour Wicklow with Eoin. You will not be disappointed.

Perfect as an escape from more urban areas of dublin. As soon as we were picked up , our guide Eoin started pointing out sites of interest. He had a great deal to say about almost everything we passed, delivered with enthusiasm and the very occasional joke. In fact I don't think he stopped talking until the end of the tour! But in that time managed to cover all sorts of topics from Irish politics and history to the wildlife around wicklow, the good craic made the bus journey fly by. The journey was also broken up by lots of stops , the Ps. I Love you bridge and finally Glendalough. Here you could walk around freely or follow Eoin on a walk through 17th century monastery, which I would recommend, as he also shared his extensive knowledge of the monastery's history. All in all, definitely worth the money.

We were looking forward to this tour as Wicklow mountains have plenty of great sights to see - it certainly delivered. The gorgeous landscape was totally worth the time and, even though there were stops for those postcard photographs where everyone seemed to ruin each other's pictures, there was no shortage of fun, learning and pure awe. Eoin was the best guide I ever had, and it is certainly the reason why this tour was so enjoyable. Thanks so much, we had a great time!

After a long night at the Pub and very hung over we took a long ride through the fog up to the mountains. Eion was our guide and did a great job of entertaining us. Multiple stops and amazing photo opportunities of the beautiful Irish countryside. An easy trip that educational and stress free.
