Day Tour of Glendalough, Wicklow Mountains and Kilkenny

The first stop on this guided tour is Glendalough, known as the valley of the two lakes, and its 6th-century monastic site of St. Kevin. The guide will walk you through the ancient monastery of St. Kevin and explain some of its important buildings, their folklore and history, before giving you plenty of time to explore the valley yourself.

Once the group reaches Kilkenny, you’ll have plenty of time to explore the medieval Norman town and its top sites, like St. Canice's Cathedral, Rothe House, and Kilkenny Castle.

What people are saying about County Wicklow

Wir haben die Tour als Familie unternommen (Kinder 16 und 10 Jahre). Die Fahrt fand in einem Kleinbus mit insgesamt 16 Passagieren statt. Unser Guide Gillian war toll und hat die Fahrzeit mit vielen interessanten Informationen aufgelockert. Glendalough fand ich traumhaft schön, besonders die Klosteranlage. Wir bekamen von Gillian eine Karte mit zwei Vorschlägen für Spazierrouten während des 1,5 ständigen Aufenthaltes. Wir haben uns für die längere Route entschieden und diese gut geschafft. Wären wir zeitlich nicht eingeschränkt gewesen, hätten wir uns natürlich mehr Zeit gelassen die herrliche Umgebung bei schönstem Sonnenschein zu genießen. Von Kilkenny war ich insgesamt etwas entäuscht. Von mittelalterlichem Flair war aufgrund des dichten Autoverkehrs wenig zu spüren. Die Kathedrale ist einen Besuch wert und im wunderschönen Schlosspark kann man gut entspannen. Eine Führung durchs Schloss haben wir nicht gemacht, da wir genug derartige Unternehmungen in Dublin hatten.

Great everything. Our guide JR made the activity very enjoyable for us. The monastery is beautiful and the mountains and lakes of Wicklow are very beautiful. I expected it to be a longer hiking trail, it is very short but it is very beautiful. The food at Johnnie Fox's is quite good, you can tell that it is homemade and it is appreciated, it consists of a very good cream of vegetables, a fairly rich and warm meat or vegetable stew, a piece of delicious banana cake, water, coffee or tea and bread made by them that is incredible. I recommend it 100%.

Our guide, Gillian, could not have been better. She was knowledgeable, friendly, and full of incredibly interesting tidbits about the area and its history. Her stories really brought things to life, but she also gave us freedom to roam and see things without any pressure. I can’t stress enough how very much we enjoyed this trip - and with three generations along that is truly saying something! Thanks again!!

Do not hesitate to go with Mario to enjoy the good experience in the Wicklow natural park. Very complete excursion to very interesting places in this natural park. And to finish off, excellent traditional food in a bar, as I would say, a battle bar. Thank you very much Mario and a big hug. Joel and Ariana

Correct tour, without any observation. Very competent guide and always ready to answer any questions. Very timely meal proposal, very good food and prices within the normal range. I strongly advise both the excursion and the team that organizes it.
