Overview
Take a leisurely drive to the medieval town of Kilkenny, a 1.5-hour drive from Dublin, known for its castles, churches, and a crafts scene. Relax on a tour that stops at Wicklow Mountains, admire views of Wicklow Gap and Turlogh waterfall, and visits the ruins of Glendalough along the way. Free time in Kilkenny lets you lunch at an Irish pub (own expense), tour Kilkenny Castle, or visit Black Abbey.
What to Expect
Meet your comfortable bus at a central Dublin location and then head south into County Wicklow, Ireland’s Garden County. The first stop is Glendough, a mountain valley used as a filming location for Braveheart and renowned for its 10th-century monastic ruins.

Continue along the Wicklow Gap, with views of the Wicklow Mountains, and stop to admire the Turlogh waterfall, before arriving in Kilkenny in time for lunch.

Enjoy at least two hours of free time in Kilkenny to explore the city at your leisure. Perhaps head to a traditional Irish pub for lunch (own expense), visit the medieval Kilkenny Castle, or admire landmarks such as Black Abbey and Cathedral of Saint Canice.

The tour ends with drop-off in central Dublin.

Wicklow not to be missed

Slightly disappointed with Kilkenny as we expected medieval streets rather than odd old buildings in newer roads, but it was still enjoyable and the road trains are worth doing. The Wicklow mountains and Glendalough are beautiful and so close to Dublin. They should not be...More

Wicklow and Kilkenny Day Tour

Beautiful scenery! Tour of Wicklow and Glendalough restores the soul--exactly as I imagined the Irish countryside. Driver Patrick was very informative and entertaining. Kilkenny, while a pretty town, was a bit of a letdown -- more touristy than I expected.
