Wicklow Mountains, Glendalough and Kilkenny Day Tour from Dublin
US$39.27 per adult

Combine some of Ireland's natural wonders and historic highlights on this full-day tour from Dublin, an easy and efficient way to explore the countryside. Transport between Wicklow National Park, Wicklow Gap, Glendalough, and Kilkenny gives you more time to focus on the sights rather than stressful navigation. Guide commentary brings historic sites to life; guided and independent elements allow ample free time; and onboard Wi-Fi keeps boredom at bay. 

What to Expect

Depart from a central Dublin meeting point, where you'll make yourself comfortable on the coach bus for the ride through the scenic Irish countryside. Climbing into the hills of Wicklow, take in the sights before hopping out to explore Glendalough and the Valley of the Two Lakes. Follow your guide to several lookout points, where you can snap photos and listen to commentary on the area's history as an early Christian settlement, complete with sixth-century monastic ruins.

Leave the driving to an expert as you gaze out the windows through the dramatic mountain pass of Wicklow Gap. In Kilkenny, disembark to explore the country's medieval capital with a guided walking tour. Highlights include Rothe House, St. Canice's Cathedral, and Kilkenny Castle, all of which you will learn about through your guide's informative commentary. Then, you'll be set loose to explore on your own, shopping for souvenirs or seeking out a traditional Irish pub for lunch (own expense).

Relax on the journey back to Dublin for drop-off.

Ruins area is awesome!

Nice air conditioned coach with great guide and driver. Trip is busy and not a lot of food options or services before Kilkenny. Took the optional walking tour of Kilkenny and enjoyed learning some of the lore and history of the area. Would recommend this...More

Friendly and informative

Tour guide Clare and driver Shane have given us a great tour of Glandalough (beautiful and restful) and Kilkenny (superb castle and delicious ice cream at Murphy's). Clare kept up a constant - and I mean unending - commentary on the towns, villages and countryside...More

Amazing if you Love History

I took this tour as a way to see more of the famed "Garden of Ireland" (Co. Wicklow), and had little knowledge of what I was going to see. However, none of that mattered, because our experienced, knowledgeable, and excellent guide provided us with all...More

Recommended day trip

Kilkenny is very nice, especially if you find the pedestrians zone at the lower level where many cafes and pubs are. Glendalough was nice and serene but personally I was expecting to see more spectacular nature in Ireland. The tour is a good brief taste...More

It’s a tour bus. If it’s full I imagine between 50-60 people. Not sure how many rows of seats there were.
