When it comes to tourist destinations, the first locations most tourist guides will offer you packages for, will probably be some of the most spectacular and well-known destinations abroad.

The trouble with well-known tourist locations is that they’re always very crowded, something that’s not every person’s cup of tea.

Wouldn’t it be nicer for instance to spend a fun day out, visiting historical sights, shopping, eating and drinking, while also admiring the beauty of untouched nature as you gaze across a breath-taking coastline? Sound interesting? Well, then maybe you should try visiting Dublin for a change of pace with Sights of Dublin Day Tours.

Fun Activities

Their Killiney Hill Tour will first take you to Dalkey Town, an historical seaside town situated south of Dublin, home of very famous people like Bono, The Edge, Enya and Van Morrison.

There you will visit the Dalkey Castle & Heritage Centre, a fantastic remnant of old Tudor times and one of the town’s main attractions. Also, you can enjoy the relatively quiet town life, as you wade through the streets and discover different markets and artisan shops.

Breath-taking Views

After you’re done absorbing the great atmosphere of Dalkey, hop back in the bus and head to Killiney Hill park, passing through Colliemore Harbour and its fantastic Dalkey Island and sea views.

Killiney Hill park offers its visitors many great walking paths from the top of its 500 ft height right down to the beach, but the best part are the views over Dublin, truly one look is all you’ll need to instantly fall in love with the landscape.

Great Food and Drink

After that, there’s a short ride to Avoca Handweavers for lunch and some quality cloth products shopping.

Once you’re done shopping, the final stop is a hearty drink at Jonnie Fox’s, the highest pub in Ireland situated in the Dublin Mountains. What a way to end a fantastic day!

However, that’s not the best thing about this tour. No, that credit goes to the quality of service provided by the individuals who run the company. Not only are they competent and friendly, but they’ve realised the one thing that irks most tourists: spending too much time in transit. Which is exactly why they ensure that the place where you spend the least amount of time is inside the bus travelling around.
