Overview
The medieval town of Kilkenny lies just a 1.5-hour drive from Dublin. On this tour, take the scenic route, stopping to explore the Wicklow Mountains, admire views of the Wicklow Gap and Turlogh waterfall, and visit the ancient ruins of Glendalough along the way. Then, enjoy free time in Kilkenny to tour Kilkenny Castle, visit the Black Abbey, or have lunch at a traditional Irish pub (own expense).
What to Expect
Traveling by comfortable bus or coach from Dublin, head south into County Wicklow, Ireland’s Garden County. The first stop is at Glendough, a beautiful mountain valley used as a filming location for Braveheart and renowned for its impressive 10th-century monastic ruins.

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

Enjoy at least 2 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 the Black Abbey and the Cathedral of Saint Canice.

At the end of your visit, return to Dublin, where your tour ends back at the departure point.

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.
