Know More about this tour

You'll depart Dublin at 8:50am. After departing, you will make your way through the Wicklow Mountains to Glendalough, a secluded and wonderful spot just south of Dublin. Truly one of the most beautiful sights you will see on a day tour from Dublin, Glendalough promises to impress with magnificent scenery and much more. Explore the lakes, monastic ruined city, waterfalls, and other attractions the area has to offer. It is no wonder that films like 'Braveheart' and 'P.S. I Love You' were filmed in this area.

As you leave Glendalough and travel through the Wicklow Mountains, enjoy the panoramic views and fantastic scenery on your way to Kilkenny. Once you arrive, enjoy 2-hours exploring the city and the Norman Castle that dates back to the 1100's. It's like traveling back to medieval Ireland and taking a walk through the 11th century. After exploring the gardens, you can watch a short film about the castle for free or spend the extra few euros to take a guided tour of the castle. Or just enjoy a walk on the cobbled streets of Kilkenny. Or visit the Black Abbey, the cathedral and much more. Either way, you will have a great time in this little city that was once the capitol of medieval Ireland.

Afterwards you'll return to Dublin, arriving back at approximately 7pm.

  • The trip was very picturesque and the sights were very interesting. The only thing I would change was the guide. He seemed to think that he wasn't doing his job if he wasn't talking non stop. It really got annoying after a while as he just kept repeating himself over and over like a salesman on a microphone outside a shop.

  • Our tour guide was not as informative as we would have liked, which is one of the reasons why this tour is rated 3 stars and not 5. The tour of Glendalough took place in the morning and was quite scenic. However, the drive to Kilkenny took about one and a half hours. By the time we arrived, it was 2 pm, we hadn't had lunch, and we were starved. So we opted to have a nice leisurely bite to eat instead of taking the walking tour of Kilkenny and its castle with our guide.

  • Our tour guide Matthew was brilliant and took us on enjoyable tours of both Glendalough and Kilkenny. An excellent day - enhanced by perfect weather.

  • This was an amazing tour. Our tour guide Pat was very informative. He went out of his way to make everyone fun at home. When we got to Kilkenny, after lunch he gave a walking tour if you wanted to go. We went on his walking tour and he took us and showed us things we would never have known or see if not for him. We loved this tour
