We travel south and begin our journey into County Wicklow, passing through some of the beautiful countryside in the Wicklow mountains making our way towards Glendalough.
Your epic journey around some of the most stunning places and scenery in Ireland will begin at 9:00am from Nassau Street. Our highly-skilled and well-trained guide will meet you from 8:50am onward to start boarding the air-conditioned coach.
After leaving Dublin, we will travel via the the Wicklow Mountains en route to our next stop at the Monastic site of Glendalough. With spectacular panoramic views of the landscape, this is truly a scenic drive with amazing scenery stretching as far as the eyes can see. We will stop on a nice elevated spot for 10 minutes to get a few pictures of this outstanding view.
Because of the natural beauty of the Wicklow Mountains, there have been a few films that took advantage of this natural beauty. Hollywood Blockbusters like ‘P.S. I Love You’ and ‘Braveheart’, to name a few.
Now for the main visit of the day, where we will also give you around 2 hours to explore one of the most beautiful sights in Ireland. The area is renowned for its magnificent scenery and rich and varied heritage. Here you will have time to explore the ruined monastic city that dates back to 10th century. Not to mention the magnificent lakes, waterfalls and babbling brooks. Glendalough is also known for the Braveheart wedding scenes.
Leaving Glendalough, we will first make our way to the beautiful little town of Kilkenny. Known for its medieval feel, amazing castle and cobbled streets, Kilkenny is a town steeped in history and folklore. With 2 hours to enjoy the amazing city of Kilkenny, once the medieval capital of Ireland back in the 11th century, which is situated on the banks of the river Nore, you will have a great day in medieval Ireland.
Enjoy the picturesque cobblestone streets. Spend some time to explore the gardens of the famed Norman Castle dating back to the 1100s. Here you have an opportunity to take a tour inside the castle for a small optional fee. Or just enjoy a free video presentation of the castle’s history and take in the splendour of the castle and gardens. You can also visit the Black Abbey and the St. Canice’s Cathedral with its magnificent round tower. This is a beautiful city to enjoy and will be a highlight of your visit to Ireland.
