We woke up pretty early on our second day. We ate some breakfast in our room and then headed off to find our meeting spot. We had signed up to spend the day driving to Sally Gap to see the mountains and the heather, followed by lunch in a pub and the 6th century monastic settlement at Glendalough. We took this tour from Wild Wicklow Tours, in case you're looking for reviews. We definitely enjoyed it.
It was early and not much was open. We wandered down to look at Trinity College and some statues.
I love this flower cart. Top right is the statue of Molly Malone.
The Wicklow mountains. 50 thousand kinds of beautiful.
This is the Sally Gap area. This is without a doubt one of the most beautiful places I've ever been in my life.
This is the pub where we stopped for lunch, and a gorgeous stream out back. That's Hannah drinking beer legally for the first time.
It's the lake where Guinness gets all the water for it's beer. Gorgeous and tasty.
When wee got to Glendalough, we had some free time to walk around the beautiful lake. That picture of the trees is one of my favorites.
After that we checked out the graveyard and the tiny monastary.
That night we wandered around downtown until we picked a pub. We ate some roast and drank some Guinness and listened to a couple people play guitar and sing. Before we headed home we stopped by a convenience store to grab some stuff to eat the next day as we'd be traveling by train to Galway.
