What people are saying about County Wicklow

This trip was such a lovely experience with enjoying a piece of everything you want to see in Ireland. Our guide's name was Godfrey and he made it such an interesting trip with lot of information about Ireland's history and present and also made us laugh many times. Thanks to the great driver as well (I didn't catch his name)! We visited cute little village Glendalough with lovely nature and stunning views of mountains around, had short stop to look at the beauty of the Wicklow mountains and visited the centre of Kilkenny, which was a really nice city with lovely atmosphere. But most of all, I enjoyed the sheep dog demonstration. It was such an unique and beautiful experience. The farmer was super friendly and a great speaker, we learned a lot about the dogs and the sheep and also could cuddle with the dogs at the end, which just made this experience even more beautiful. Thank you for this lovely trip, I can't recommend enough!
