This tour was a great value for what you got. The tour guide/driver was knowledgeable and funny and could really maneuver that bus around those thin winding roads. Side note to that...if you tend to get carsick you are best off sitting at the front of the bus, these roads are bumpy and winding! Glendalough was gorgeous and the muffins in the little hotel restaurant there were fabulous. Kilkenny was very enjoyable. We chose to use our time there touring Kilkenny Castle. We had enough time to go in a few shops and stop for lunch. I would have enjoyed more time in this medieval town. Overall I highly recommend this tour. I also recommend starting the tour in the morning at the first meeting spot as the bus tends to fill up and it may be difficult to sit by family or friends if you join at the second or third location.

Our guide Bailey was great! Funny and knowledgeable. Lovely drive up through Wicklow Mountains. Stopped at Glendalough. Walked to lower and upper lakes for photos and viewed Round Towers and monastic site. If you want to reach the upper lake, be warned it is about a 3.4km round trip walk so keep up a steady pace and take your pics of the monastic site on the way back. Alternatively, just walk to lower lake the first lake then back to monastic site. Won't be missing out on much.
Kilkenny was great. Enough time for a walk around, quick lunch and tour of Kilkenny castle and grounds.

What a great tour! Our guide/driver, Valentine, was full of knowledge and very entertaining - including his singing! First stop was Glendalough and the monastic settlement founded by St. Kevin. It's in a beautiful setting in the Wicklow National Forest and we had time for the settlement, a short hike to a lovely lake, and delicious scones in the hotel restaurant. From there we went through the Wicklow Gap fogged in, unfortunately, and then down to the city of Kilkenny. We had plenty of time for a tour of the castle and at least one more site visit. We choose the Smithwick's Brewery. Also recommended were the Cathedral and another smaller church. Val was very good at giving us ideas when we arrived at a spot - where to eat, what to see, and even what order to see things to make the best use of your time. A lovely trip.
