It was a very enjoyable trip, with a knowlegeable and friendly guide, Yoan. The drive itself is quite pleasant and the stop in Kilkenny was wonderful. It was great to have a guided tour, walk around, have a leisurely lunch and enjoy the local environment. The drive through Wiklow mountain and the stop in Glendalough were interesting. Again, the guide made everything fun and pleasant, with interesting comments on history and life in the region. Overall, a fun trip that I would strongly recommend.
Yoan and Jack were pretty funny during the bus ride. Yoan knows a lot about the history of Ireland and is very knowledgeable. All in all, a fun worthwhile trip to take.
It was a wonderful tour! The exquisite Gronia kept us entertained all day with here knowledgeable and funny commentary. We would recommend this tour to everybody, it was a great day.
This was my first visit to Ireland. Friends recommended a visit to Glendalough, so I went looking for a tour. This trip on Viator, actually operated by Wild Rover Day Tours, had great reviews, so I booked it. I was NOT disappointed. Glendalough is spectacularly beautiful, rich in beauty and history. Kilkenny has a beautiful castle and some nice medieval buildings. Unfortunately, it wasn't clear when we arrived at the Wicklow Gap, but two out of three isn't bad! Grainne is a wonderful guide. Her knowledge of history and culture is quite extensive. I particularly appreciated her skill at storytelling. She helped make both Glendalough and Kilkenny come alive for me. It helped that we didn't have any rain during the walking tours! Hats off to John for professionally negotiating those amazingly narrow streets and lanes!
Gorgeous! The castle in Kilkenny was breathe taking. The grounds of the castle was beautiful. It really gave you a taste of what a castle should be. Fully decorated, it was like going back in time. Wicklow was so surreal. The walk to the lake, awesome. The scenery looked like a post card. The monastery was very interesting. Our guide, Siofra, was great. Wish we had more time in Kilkenny.
Out tour was great! A wonderful driver and Yoann was a fantastic tour guide!
This tour was great! I loved Kilkenny, it was picture perfect! I would have loved more time to explore around. The scenery was gorgeous and my tourguide Grawnya was great! Glendalough was fascinating and gorgeous, it was a perfect day trip!

Had great guides Paddy and Richard would have liked more time never seems to be enough to see everything. I recommend the walking tour of Kilkenny city the guide gave us and then picking one major thing to see Like the castle or the church otherwise it feels rushed.
The tour was amazing! At first I thought it was funny that our irish tour guide was actually half french but i quickly overlooked it by his fun stories and information he knew. The trip was full of (craic) fun/enjoyment ! If i could do another trip with Jo-Hann than I would sign up right away.
Great tour enough free time to see both places. Excellent guide and driver
This tour was fantastic! Yoan, our tour guide, was super friendly and very entertaining. Ireland is such a beautiful place.
This was a great day spent. Jim was our guide. He was entertaining and a wealth of knowledge. He shared the history of the area from hundreds of years ago.
Just finished a great tour! The tour guide, James, really knows his history and he is great with people. He made sure every member of our large group was well informed, whether they were taking the walking tour with him or not. I learned so much about the history of religion in Ireland as well as Irish history and folklore. The 3 stops on this tour were beautiful and we spent adequate time at each. Great value for an unforgettable experience! I recommend this tour, especially with James as your guide!
bud I think his name was and Paddy were terrific. Friendly, knowledgeable, and funny they were. Both my husband and I had a great time. We will definitely book with this website and these tours again. Great tour guides, great tour. Liza from Texas
This was my second time to do this tour, and it didn't disappoint.
The weather was beautiful and our guide, Yoan, decided that since the weather was so wonderful and frankly, since Ireland's weather changes quite frequently we should go to Glendalough first. I cannot emphasize enough what a great choice that was! We had one of the best walks around the lake with the most picturesque weather!!
We made our way to Kilkenny and were allowed a few hours there. The weather changed a little, so we were super thankful we went to Glendalough first. Kilkenny is a great city that is easy to maneuver, so we were able to see a lot in a little amount of time.
Yoan was incredibly knowledgeable and his passion for Irish history is evident. Bravo to him and the busdriver his name escapes me, but he's from Wicklow for creating such a wonderful day for my mother and me!
I picked this tour at random online without knowing much about the trip or the company. We had a fantastic time. I would go again and recommend it for everyone looking for a day trip from Dublin. The countryside is beautiful and the tour guide, Mark, was fantastic and very knowledgeable. The driver, Seamus was also a very skillful driver. This was a fantastic trip and I wish I could go again.
Loved Grainne as our tour guide. My partner and I did the Kilkenny City and Glendalough Day Trip from Dublin. We couldn't have been more satisfied. The tour is a more at your own pace tour with options to do the walking city tour or explore on your own. We did several tours while in Ireland and I have to say hands down this was our favorite. The driver and guide are so kind and warm!!! Thank you again for making a memory that will last forever!!
Can't say enough great things about wild rover! First off, the coach itself is superb. Comfortable seating, clean, and wifi on board. Multiple stops for bathroom breaks. No food or drink on the bus, FYI. fine with us as it was clean and we had gotten spilled on during a previous tour with aDifferent company!
My husband and I did two tours with wild rover while we were in Dublin. First, we did Belfast and giants causeway. Two completely different experiences but both completely amazing. Our guide, Jim, was fantastic. There was a delay with the bus, but Jim and wild rover handled it professionally, responsibly, and because of their reaction, have some of the best customer service I have ever seen. Awesome trip! Driver John was great and we loved his accent!
Our second trip was to Kilkenny with Groinya and John was just as great. Plenty of time at all the stops and her knowledge and humor with every thing was out of this world. We personally didn't have kids traveling with us, but there were a few in our group. She brought them into her discussions with ease and made things easy for them to understand as well.
top notch tour company and highly, highly recommend!
Our driver Richard and our guide Srainne kept us well informed and entertained. The structure of the day was well planned and appreciated, it kept the day on schedule. Srainne is an amazing source of information, hard to believe someone can remember that much. Thanks for the wonderful day and to all those contemplating this tour, or any with Wild Rover, it is a must!
