Glendalough and Wicklow Mountains

We booked an afternoon tour to Glendalough & Wicklow Mountains. The drive is almost 2 hours each way and the tour started in the early afternoon, returning around 7pm. Unfortunately the day was rather gloomy, overcast with off and on, sometimes heavy rain. But I managed to get a few pictures at Glendalough. I guess we'll have to return, maybe with a private tour or rental car, to get some better shots of the Wicklow Mountains.

The picture below was also taken at Glendalough. Note the Roundtower in the background, the same Roundtower as in the previous picture.

Back in Dublin we saw one of these Guinness tanker trucks. Each tanker truck holds 30,000 liters of beer. They're used to transport beer from the Guinness brewery at St. James's Gate in Dublin to packaging plants in East Belfast and the north of England.

Our best Guinness adventure was yet to come though. In two days we had reservations for the Guiness Factory at St. James's Gate where I'd be celebrating my birthday!
