What to expect

Leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind as you head to your first stop of the day, Glendalough. A stunning, secluded spot just south of Dublin, you'll be able to explore the lakes and waterfalls and discover the monastic ruined city and more. You'll have two hours to soak up its beauty before heading off to the sheepdog herding demonstration. This is definitely a must-see for all as you see the intelligence of the sheepdogs firsthand and learn why they're the perfect farm companion. After the demonstration, you'll travel through the Wicklow Mountains, admiring the changes in scenery as you head into the breathtaking ancient glacial valleys of the Wicklow Gap. Your last stop of the day will be at Kilkenny where you'll have two hours to explore the city, visit its medieval castle and gardens or stroll through the cobbled streets and take in the sites.
