This private 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.
  • Guided day trip from Dublin to Glendalough and Kilkenny in the Irish countryside
  • Marvel at the panoramic views from your vehicle while being transported around the countryside

We had a great time with Sean who was a very knowledgeable and passionate guide. I would definitely recommand this tour with him as I have learnt so many interesting things and have seen so many beautiful places. It was a memorable experience that I would do again without any hesitation!
Great Tour
Richard_V, May 2022
Excellent tour with just enough time during a day trip to enjoy the sights, including Kilkenny with its sprawling castle and the historic 6th century Glendalough. Peter is a great tour guide and made the trip all the more enjoyable..

Nice trip
Fernando_P, May 2022
The trip was great. The tour guide was awesome, very helpful and friendly. It's a pity we didn't get more time to spend or Glendalough or Kilkenny. The sheepdog demonstration was really nice, but personally I'd rather use that time to walk around a bit more in Kilkenny.
Mote time for the Nature, great Dogshow.

Had a great time on this tour! Our guide, Hazel was lovely and the driver Michael was also great! I would recommend this as a great way to get out of Dublin for the day and see the countryside.
