Lovely trip. Great guide. Took alot of photos. Kilkenny was the best on the whole trip. Fell in love with that town. We will ofcourse travel with you again.

Wonderful tour. We had a fantastic guide who was very informative. The only gripe I have is the time frame allotted. Once we reached Kilkenny, we had the option of exploring the city or going to the Dunmore Caves. I wanted to do both, which is doable, but leaves very little time for anything else. We were able to explore the caves (very cold and wet, so be prepared), get a quick lunch, and run through Kilkenny Castle (admission is not included) before leaving. The time in Glendalough was adequate; my husband and I were able to walk to both lakes and a few other very picturesque places before heading back to Dublin. Although rushed, it was definitely worth doing.

This was a great tour and a great deal of fun. The guide was excellent, very personable, and knowledgeable about the area. It was nice to have the opportunity to do whatever we wanted at each location and the amount of time available to spend in Kilkenny and Glendalough was adequate enough to explore the different locations.

This day trip was the highlight of our whole Ireland vacation. The tour guide (I forget her name) was very informative without being overly present. She was very interactive and gave wonderful commentary. We were snowed out of Wicklow Gap, but they made the detour just as nice. I highly recommend this trip. Tip: Skip the caves in Kilkenny and use your time to explore the castle and town below. Also eat lunch in the design center using your voucher. The food is DELICIOUS!

Fab trip, both the driver and the tour guide were great, we really appreciated all the information as we travelled. We thoroughly enjoyed our day, the favourite part was Glendlough which was stunning and would have liked more time there. Very impressed with the tour guide, she did a great job, thank you! Easy to book, pick up exactly as arranged, brilliant!

Excellent tour. Very interesting. This was because of our tour guide Corrine who kept us informed of all the places and a little history. I would recomend to my friends.

One of the best tours my wife and I have experienced. The walk to the Upper Lake and the monastic city at Glendalough should be on everyone's list. Kilkenny Castle would have been more interesting if we could have gone to the top of one of the towers for photos. A must-do in Kilkenny is lunch at Kyteler's Inn--great food and interesting history. Spend the 30 minutes on the little sightseeing train when you get off the bus--good overview of Kilkenny that lets you "target" where you want to spend your time.

What an amazing trip. The tour guide was amazing. She was extremely knowledgable and friendly. We opted out of the cave trip to spend more time at the castle. I'm glad we did since you could really use another hour or so on top of that. Great trip overall.

The tour was great, plenty of time in Killarney(if someone did not visit the caves, I didn't) and plenty of time to Glendalough to walk to the upper lake and also enough time to wander arount the monastic site. Excellent tour guide and driver, i would reccoment this tour, it was great for me
