DAY 01

Tour ireland

  • Make your way directly to the fantastic little city of Kilkenny. Enjoy 2 hours walking down the cobbled streets and visit castles in a town that was once the medieval capital of Ireland back in the 11th century. 

  • Visit the Black Abbey and the Saint Canice's Cathedral with its magnificent round tower with your Irish tour guide.

  • Leave Kilkenny and travel through the Wicklow Mountains to your next stop at the Monastic site of Glendalough. This is truly a scenic drive with amazing scenery stretching as far as the eyes can see. Your local tour guide will show you the spots where Hollywood Blockbusters like ‘P.S. I Love You’ and ‘Braveheart’ got filmed.

  • Do a 10-minute photo stops to get a few pictures of this outstanding view is also included.

  • Arrive in Glendalough, an area renowned for its magnificent scenery and Monastic ruins dating back to the 10th Century. Here, you will find magnificent lakes, waterfalls etc. The wedding scene from the movie "Braveheart" was filmed here at Glendalough. 

  • Finally, head over to a sheepdog farm and watch a sheepdog herd with his master. For those who aren’t aware of what a sheepdog trial is, it is when a Border Collie uses a tactic called “The Eye” on sheep. This is a direct stare at the sheep used to intimidate them while herding.
