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.

Sem dúvida um dos melhores tours. A região de Wicklow é de uma beleza natural incrível e a oportunidade de visitar o Castelo de Kilkenny é uma coisa que não se pode perder.
