1. From Dublin: Glendalough, Wicklow Mountains and Kilkenny Full-Day Trip

Leave Dublin for the day on a truly scenic drive with amazing scenery stretching as far as the eyes can see. Visit Kilkenny, Glendalough, and the Wicklow Mountains as you explore the heartlands of medieval Ireland. From Dublin, head first to Kilkenny, once the medieval capital of Ireland and home to Ireland’s finest Norman castle. Discover a city steeped in history that was also the location of one of Ireland’s earliest witch trials, the famous story of Dame Alice Kyteler and her servant Petronilla. En route to Glendalough, drive into the wild Wicklow Mountains of County Carlow. Watch as the landscape changes from lush green pastures and gentle valleys to the glacial valleys of the Wicklow Gap.

Made the tour with Sean and Michael and it was one of the nicest and very chill tours I had. The time allotted to every sites was fair and you don’t feel so rushed. The bus was comfortable and I felt safe with the journey. It’s best if you bring food with you during the trip as it’s better to go and see the sights than going to eat somewhere on stopovers. Covid safety was always checked and reminded to everyone.

Well timed and well organized. Enjoyable and easy going. The sheep dog demonstration kept things lively after a lovely hike. Sean is a perfect guide who is professional and friendly. His information is interesting, well timed, and valuable without wearing you out. Highly recommend the trip.

Travel Guide Rory and busdriver Mike were a really fun duo. They made the busdriver so much more fun. It was a nice tour with fun spots to drop us.

Informative trip with Sean who is well knowledgeable with the history of Irish.

nice trip, wish we could have more time at Kilkenny
