What to Expect
Depart from a central Dublin meeting point, and 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 6th-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 learn about through your guide's informative commentary. Then, 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.
