Wicklow Mountains, Glendalough and Kilkenny Day Tour from Dublin
From US$41.33

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.

Traveling with my wife and two teenage daughters I was looking for one day trip from Dublin. We picked the right one. Pat was a fantastic guide, knowledgeable, charming and kept up Jo's energy throughout the day. Highly recommended.

Very nice day trip!!

We made the trip with guide Pat and chauffeur Remus. Very well guided with a lot of enthusiasm. We saw the nature of the Wicklow NP and saw and heart a lot of the history of Ireland. A trip to remember!

Hi, you have to choose one of the two tours in Kilkenny. In Wicklow mountains there is one photo stop.
