Today, Pippa O’Connor was rediscovering the beauty of the south coast with Dublin Bus Tours. The Dublin and Wicklow coast offers striking scenery and attractions that can, at times, be overlooked by its own residents. Discover the beauty that Dublin and Wicklow have to offer and explore its history and culture with Dublin Bus’ South Coast Tour.
The tour travels along the coast, taking in Dublin Bay, Dún Laoghaire Harbour, James Joyce Tower at Sandycove, Bray, Powerscourt House and Gardens and the Wicklow Mountains. You can also learn about their history along the way from experienced, Fáilte Ireland approved, tour guides. The tour brings you to Powerscourt House and Gardens which is an ideal location for a quick getaway to relax and, with 47 acres of beautiful gardens, Avoca Café and Store and Tara’s Palace, it offers entertainment for all the family.
In these recessionary times, the tour offers value for money and is perfect for those wanting to do something a little different with their weekend during the summer. The tour operates daily at 10.30am from the city centre and tickets cost €24 for adults. This ticket entitles customers to free admission into Powerscourt House and Gardens which is usually €8.50.
Dublin Bus is also continuing its Kids Go Free offer on the Hop on Hop off and South Coast Tours. Two children under 14 years of age can travel on the tours free of charge with a fare paying adult.
