Overview of the tour in Dublin

Visit the ruined monastic city that dates back to the 10th century. Explore stunning lakes and natural beauty and see why this area is known as the Garden of Ireland. Glendalough and the surrounding area will capture your heart and mind forever.
Sheepdog Trials
Experience the competitive dog sport where herding dogs move sheep around a field, fences and gates as directed by their handlers. Our local shepherd and his trusty Collie will exhibit their technique to you.
Wicklow mountains
Enjoy a scenic drive through the Wicklow mountains and enjoy spectacular views of the Irish landscapes. Stopping along the way for you to stretch your legs and to take a few pictures.
Kilkenny City
The town of Kilkenny’s narrow, winding streets lend it an atmosphere of old-world charm; its terraces of handsome Georgian houses give it elegance; and with all this, it remains a bustling modern town.
Kilkenny Castle
The original Anglo-Norman stone castle was constructed for the 4th Earl of Pembroke before becoming the main Irish residence of the Butler family for almost 600 years. Enjoy a free video presentation of the castle’s history and take in the splendour of the castle and rose garden

Things to note

Please wear comfortable clothing as there will be stops along the way and walking is required as part of the tour.

Lunch is not included. We do not stop at any restaurants/ cafes for lunch. Bringing your own packed lunch is recommended as cafes and pubs at the tourist attractions tend to be overpriced. Also, it would take up the time that you could have spent in exploring the attractions.

As this is a group tour, please be considerate and be reminded that we will not wait for more than 5 minutes after the given time at each stop. Language barrier is not an acceptable excuse. Please make sure to check with our driver/ guide if you are not sure. They are always happy to help.
