Today perhaps drive to Glendalough "The Valley of Two Lakes", home to an impressive 98-foot Round Tower, one of the most important monastic sites in Ireland. This early Christian monastic settlement was founded by St. Kevin in the 6th century and from this developed the "Monastic City". Next, drive through Wicklow Mountains National Park for a glimpse into Ireland's wild side. The lush scenery and placid lakes are delicately wound through hills and valleys offering gorgeous views. Another option is to return back to Dublin to further explore the city. Visit Trinity College, where you can view the 8th century Book of Kells, a superb example of early Irish manuscript illumination that is on display in the Old Library.

This passage tomb, which some say was an ancient temple, was constructed over 5,000 years ago making it older than Stonehenge in England and the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt. The area has been designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Following this visit, perhaps head to the scenic coastal town of Malahide, with its newly restored historic castle and unique walled garden with exotic species of plants from all over the world.
