Begin your tour with convenient pickup at your Dublin hotel, where you’ll climb aboard a comfortable tour vehicle and set out into the Irish countryside. Enjoy the scenery and leave the driving to your guide on the way to Kilkenny Castle. Listen to your guide’s commentary on the history of the castle, built in the 12th century on the River Nore. Spend some free time exploring the chambers and the rose garden at your own pace, before heading out into the village of Kilkenny. Stroll the cobblestone streets, taking in sights of the monasteries, cathedrals, and Tudor-style houses. Meet up with your guide for a last stop at the 12th-century St. Francis Abbey Brewery before departing. Back on the bus, head over the picturesque Wicklow Gap into Wicklow Mountains National Park. Keep your camera at the ready and take advantage of the fact that someone else is driving, using that time to snap photos of the dreamy scenery instead. Stop at a local sheep farm to see border collies doing what they do best: herding sheep, a long-standing Irish tradition. Once you reach the glacial valley of Glendalough, take in sights of the glacial lakes and stop at the medieval monastery and tower. After an orientation from your guide, spend a while exploring independently before boarding the bus and returning to Dublin for drop-off.

Our tour guide Liam and bus driver Warren were fantastic. Always eager to please everybody. The tour was great and eventhough the weather was quite cool, the day was very enjoyable. I would recommend Wild Rover Tours especially with Liam and Warren.

It was a magical experience with Orla and her partner with songs of Irish and whistles. Gabriel was fantastic and punctual driver that got us on time and safely. I adore the sheep tour and getting to hold the baby lamb. Wicklow was captivating with the hike to lower and upper lake. Kilkenny was a whimsical town with quaint cobble stone path ways, castles, and magnificent colors of the buildings. I highly recommend it.

This tour is great for travelers who are short on time and who do not want to rent a car. The trip was extremely well organized and informative; both the driver and guide were professionals. Glendalough is gorgeous. The sheep farm is fascinating - an absolute bonus! (And all at a great price.)
