The Grand Tour - It’s Ireland in a nutshell. – Approximate distance 324km.
Picture it. Just you, the open road, and a classic touring route that sweeps from the wilds of Wicklow to the horse-peppered plains of Kildare. The Grand Tour is the quintessential circuit of Kildare and Wicklow, taking in the most spectacular scenery, the most beautiful big houses and gardens and the most intriguing Early Christian heritage sites… in a route as suited to a short visit as a long, leisurely meander. Historically, the ‘Grand Tour’ was a European sojourn undertaken by young aristocrats, a rite of passage soaking up the continental highlights. Kildare Wicklow recaptures that, offering a complete Irish experience within a short drive of Dublin. Roam from St. Kevin’s sixth century monastic settlement at Glendalough to great mansions like Russborough and Carton House. Stop to smell the flowers in ravishing Irish gardens, savour warm village welcomes, or soak up epic scenery ranging from grassy plains, glacial lakes and wild mountain passes to a surprising eastern coastline. Along with the hotspots you’ll find plenty of hidden gems: a Givenchy dress worn by Princess Grace at the Newbridge Museum of Style Icons; a submerged town land beneath the Blessington Lakes, a fairy bower at Lullymore, at the heart of the Bog of Allen.Get ready for an unforgettable adventure right on Dublin's doorstep.
