This tour was by far the best one my boyfriend and I went on while in Ireland! Our guide, Godfrey, really went above and beyond to delve into Irish history as we drove to each location and he made sure everyone was clear on when to be back to the bus and where it could be found. He also made everyone laugh with jokes and broke into a fun Irish song on our drive, which was a pleasant addition to the trip! You really get a through sense of the medieval history of Ireland by visiting Glendalough and Kilkenny on the same day, and you get 2 hours to explore both locations, which is more than you get for other key spots on the other tours. The picturesque drive through the Wicklow Mountains was also breath-taking. The highlight of the tour, though, was the sheep herding demo! The Border collie, Lass, and her whistling owner give you an off-the-beaten-path view of tending to Ireland’s livestock. This tour is a must for anyone visiting Ireland!

This Tour by Finn McCools to Kilkenny, Wicklow, & Glendalough with Sheep Dog Demo, was an enriching experience. Our Guide Mr Godfrey, was absolute 'craic', as we would call in Irish! His indepth knowledge about history, culture and heritage of Ireland, combined with his wit and grand humour, made our experience, even more richer. The places, chosen and time given at each points was ample and we thoroughly enjoyed the trips. The sheep dog training experience was a smash hit!! Our sincere thanks to Alex, who has been an excellent driver throughout the tour!! Last, but the least, we also had lovely co-passengers in this trip with whom, we had a great company and good fun.. Overall a A1 experience. We strongly recommend this tour for any one who is looking for a real craic in Ireland!!!

Mark our guide and Bojan our driver were both great! I was about to list our favorite parts of the trip, but realized I was listing everything. Highlights were just the beautiful drive itself, the nature all around us, and the Sheep Dog display. We weren’t sure about the sheep dog “thing” when we booked and it ended up being incredible! Bring some money IF you have a doggo at home because he had some incredible 100% irish, hand made leashes and collars (amongst other awesome 100% irish products) for sale afterwards. We loved this and are SO GLAD we booked this. Highlight of our whole trip for sure. Good communication but make sure to bring lunch or snacks as some of the stops don’t have food.

Mark was a great tour guide. What I liked the most about this day trip is that they give us enough time to explore all the stops. They also gave us the freedom to eat anywhere we wanted. They did not take us to any overpriced restaurant and made us eat there, which I think it was great. Would definitely recommend this company for day tour from dublin. Bus was comfortable and all seats had working phone usb chargers.

One of the most beautiful places we went to - I would suggest it be a not miss journey !
