Don't come to Ireland and just spend all your time in Dublin. You won't be seeing the real Ireland. This tour transports you there, spending a day cruising around the Irish countryside engulfing yourself in bright green fields, castles, abbeys and rustic villages. Stop in majestic and secluded Glendalough, explore the Wicklow Mountains and enjoy the ancient wonders of Kilkenny, where you can walk around a 12th-century Norman castle, a medieval cathedral or stroll the cobbled streets before heading back to Dublin.

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.
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
