Full description

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.

Continue to the monastic city of St. Kevin at Glendalough, best known for the wedding scenes in the blockbuster movie “Braveheart” and famous as the location for the film “PS I Love You.”

Once you arrive in Glendalough, you’ll have time to explore one of the most beautiful sights in Ireland, in an area renowned for its magnificent scenery and monastic ruins that date back to the 10th century. Finally, return to Dublin.

      Booking was really good, finding the bus was easy (bright green can’t miss it!) the ‘tour’ guide was excellent, lots of facts, explanations, music. Views by the lakes we’re beautiful! Even though the weather wasnt great. We stopped up in the mountains at look out point, was too misty that day but could imagine seeing miles on a clear day! Stop over in the town by the castle was good! Perfect time to look around, take photos, explore Cathedral and have a meal and a pint! Well worth the money as its a long drive between sites, very happy

      petite excursion très agréable. chauffeur très sympathique visiblement mais mon anglais est trop mauvais pour le comprendre. J'ai donc profité des paysages sans comprendre les explications du chauffeur mais je m y attendais. paysages vraiment très. .. irlandais ! arrêt à kilkeny un peu long. j aurais préféré une balade supplémentaire dans les montagnes. Mais je suis très satisfaite de cette sortie. chaussures de randonnée pas indispensables.

      Fun and informative, Robby is a good guide and Simon a good driver. Please note the bus rides are long and you will probably sleep a bit. No bathroom on bus, need to change that.
