Full description

Visit the tower of Glendalough, admire the wild beauty of the Wicklow Mountains, and explore the medieval city of Kilkenny on a full-day guided tour from Dublin.

First, make your way directly to Kilkenny, a town that was once the medieval capital of Ireland. Enjoy walking down the cobbled streets and visit the Black Abbey and the Cathedral of Saint Canice. After that, travel through the Wicklow Mountains to your next stop.

Visit the monastic site of Glendalough. Hollywood Blockbusters like ‘P.S. I Love You’ and ‘Braveheart’ have been filmed here. Explore the area renowned for its ruins, magnificent lakes, and waterfalls. Finally, head over to a sheepdog farm and watch a sheepdog herd with his master. Look at the Border Collies using a tactic called “The Eye” on sheep. Witness a shepherd and his dog at work and watch how they herd a flock of sheep.

Fantastic live and dedicated guide. The time fit so nicely on the various sights. A beautiful beautiful nature experience with exciting Irish history and fantastic experience watching dogs work with st drive sheep. In the bus, the driver played nice Irish music which really gave the right atmosphere along the way :)

I wish this trip lasted forever. We had amazing weather, an amazing lady as guide and everything we saw that day was gorgeous and super interesting. Loved the sheep dog demonstration, I even got to bottle feed a baby lamb, so cute! The bus was not very comfy but I'm quite difficult about that. Bring lots of food! Buying it during the trip wastes precious limited time.
