Discover Ireland's enchanting landscapes and join Club Lotus and Lotus Drivers Club members for a journey through Ireland's natural wonders on 12 - 14 April 2024. On Saturday, participants will travel to the beautiful monastic site of Glendalough and on through the Wicklow Mountains taking in Blessington Lake and onto Johnnie Fox’s pub (Ireland's highest) for lunch. 

Heading south following the ‘Old Military Road’, members will traverse the spine of the Wicklow Mountains with magnificent valley and mountain views, punctuated by forests and impressive lakes. These include the glacial lakes of Kippure Mountain: Lower Lough Bray and Upper Lough Bray. The route will pass through the Sally Gap, a 498-metre-high mountain pass offering exceptional views of the park and then onto the Glenmacnass Valley which boasts a magnificent waterfall.

On Sunday, members will head South West to Kilkenny taking in Kilkenny Castle.
