Famous Leaders of rebellions were all detained here such names as Robert Emmet, Charles Stewart Parnell and DeValera.

 

 

We will then proceed to Trinity College Dublin an absolute must see.

We can stop here then for some lunch before heading off again on our journey to Dublin.

 

 

 

Our destination for the afternoon today is Howth, a picturesque fishing village just 10 miles outside of the city. Howth is a village of beauty and serenity where the past meets the present. It has some of the most amazing scenery, walks and seafood restaurants and at the heart of it all is Howth harbour and yachting marina.

Nestled in County Wicklow’s National Park, Glendalough is a picture of unbridled beauty and when Ireland’s first Canonised Saint, Kevin, set up his monastery and settlement here in the 6th Century he knew what he was doing! We’ll show you this monastic site with its Round Tower and magnificent Celtic Crosses. There is a Visitor Centre here, and some very enjoyale trails and walks which give us insight into the monastic lifestyle as well as the geological forces that shaped this most scenic valley.
