Fast day trips from Dublin
A cultural freak with little tim? Do one of our fast day trips from Dublin! Coming out of the town, taking in the breath of clean breezes and enjoying some of the world's most stunning sights and attractions is why Ireland is a delight for residents and tourists.
If you are interested in the outdoors and cultural activities, you are spoiled for choices, as the location is less than an hours drive from Dublin Town. Little to do? Join one of these 3 great day trips from Dublin that will bring you back in good season for supper or an eveningshow! Gray Line Tour to Newgrange takes you to the most beautiful scenery in Ireland.
Journey on this trip to get access to the grave and the Visitors' Center, which is booked during the high seasons (there is a raffle for the winter solstice). Only 35 leagues from the center of Dublin, this day trip brings you back to Dublin by 5.30 pm, on schedule for a savoury dinner at the popular Le Bon Crubeen, just around the corner and from the bust!
Wicklow is as much loved by local people as it is by tourists and is the Dubliner week-end reserve. With its gentle hills and unspoilt ponds, it is a secluded place from the city's busy night life, but Wicklow is only 40mins from town. Or the Wicklow Mountain Tour or the Powerscourt and Glendalough Shuttle.
Wicklow Mountain Tour includes Glendalough, Glencree, Avoca Village and the Sally Gap. Glendalough Convent from the fifth millennium was constructed in a wonderful, though somewhat remotely accessible dale and is an astonishing opportunity to see Ireland's early Christendom heritage. Founded by St. Kevin, the Glendalough convent was a city in its own right, thriving high up in the isolated hills.
Glendealough has a wonderful visitors center, a motel, a few inexpensive meals at the top of the mountain and a beautiful scenery to discover. Wicklow's Sally Gap is creepy and offside, the silent heaths and gentle slopes seem eternal and reminiscent of another age. It winds its way southwards through the lush verdant mountain scenery to Avoca Village and an option to have a dinner in a nearby bar.
Powerscourt and Glendalough shuttles are ideal for independent travelers and mountain hikers who like to travel at their own speed. From the Dublin City Centre, this 10am bus will take you to Powerscourt House & Gardens and the stunning Glendalough in the Wicklow Mountains. The Powerscourt House goes back to a castle from the thirteenth to eighteenth centuries, which was converted into a palladium villa in the eighteenth cent.
From Dublin this scenic day trip and the Dublin shuttles will take you back to the center at 5:15 - 5:45 am. Somewhat nearer home is Malahide Palace, a recently renovated XII centuries palace on a huge property just to the North of Dublin. Throughout the last 800 years, the house of the Talbot dynasty has changed dramatically.
Malahide Palace and Coastal Tours take you right there and include a visit to the palace, the garden and the magnificent sense of being the landlord. The DART (Suburban Rail) can take you directly, but the bus ride also leads you to Howth Head and the town where you can take a break by the seaside.
On the way back we drive along the coastal highway with a magnificent view of Dublin Bay, Bull Island and the Poolbeg inlets. You will be back in good season for your lunches, dinners or dances. Dealing with so many astonishing things is the only concern where you go and what you can see in the times you have!
