Get a taste of the true beauty of Ireland on a full-day scenic tour of Kilkenny and Glendalough from Dublin. Admire the rolling hills, rugged mountains, romantic brooks and glacial valleys of County Wicklow, and discover the “Garden of Ireland.”
What to Expect
Travel through beautiful Kildare to historic Kilkenny on this full-day scenic tour from Dublin. Once the medieval capital of Ireland, Kilkenny boasts Ireland’s finest Norman castle and will also provide you with the chance to try a pint of Kilkenny beer in the city where it is produced!
Enjoy some free time to shop for traditional Irish crafts at Kilkenny design shops, such as the one in the Kilkenny Design Centre, where you can purchase unique knitwear, pottery and glass.
Continue to the monastic city of St. Kevin at Glendalough, best known for the wedding scenes in the blockbuster movie “Braveheart” and famous as the location for the film “PS I Love You.”
Sparkling lakes, dense forests and babbling brooks make this a spectacular scenic drive, and a fine day out from the big city. Plus, as an added bonus, you will go to the megalithic portal tomb of Brownshill Dolmen for a sneak peak at how ancient Irish ancestors buried their dead and celebrated their passage into the next world.
