Overview

Don't come to Ireland and just spend all your time in Dublin. You won't be seeing the real Ireland. This private tour transports you there, spending a day cruising around the Irish countryside engulfing yourself in bright green fields, castles, abbeys, and rustic villages. Stop in majestic and secluded Glendalough, explore the Wicklow Mountains and enjoy the ancient wonders of Kilkenny, where you can walk around a 12th-century Norman Castle, a medieval cathedral or stroll the cobbled streets before heading back to Dublin.
  • Guided day trip from Dublin to Glendalough and Kilkenny in the Irish countryside
  • Marvel at the panoramic views from your vehicle while being transported around the countryside
  • Visit a 12th-century Norman castle, a medieval abbey and verdant gardens in Kilkenny
  • A private guide and vehicle ensures a personalized experience

The sites on the tour were amazing but the tour guide didn't seem to know much about them. Also, the time at each destination was shorter than the itinerary said it would be.

Ha Ha. The site were the exact same as the description! We just did the tour backwards to maximise the weather at the site were there was lots to explore outside and give everyone the best weather possible. Strange that you did not hear/see or realise this???

Excellent tour with just enough time during a day trip to enjoy the sights, including Kilkenny with its sprawling castle and the historic 6th century Glendalough. Peter is a great tour guide and made the trip all the more enjoyable..

The trip was great. The tour guide was awesome, very helpful and friendly. It's a pity we didn't get more time to spend or Glendalough or Kilkenny. The sheepdog demonstration was really nice, but personally I'd rather use that time to walk around a bit more in Kilkenny.

Had a great time on this tour! Our guide, Hazel was lovely and the driver Michael was also great! I would recommend this as a great way to get out of Dublin for the day and see the countryside.

Awesome time in Glendalough and Kilkenny

Tour was great. Brian was full of information and guidance. Steve was quite the driver on those small and narrow roads. Weather could have been better but enjoyed it all the same. Suggest wearing walking shoes of nice hiking shoes. Put plenty of steps in during this tour, but worth it. Bring snacks also, just in case. But you will have time to eat something in Kilkenny. Sheep demonstration was awesome. would highly recommend this if you are in Dublin for a few days.
