What people are saying about Kilkenny
A natural, knew how to deal with an international clientele. His crisp and precise English was a joy to listen to........disappointing only for those who are looking for an Irish accent. The only minus point....and this has nothing to do with Philip.....was the misleading information about the embarking bus stop.....the Printsafe shop on Nassau Street was already closed and the company bus stop sign was too small and old to be recognised. Luckily we took the trouble to seek the assistance from a tourism office a day before the trip. Late arrivals on the day might have been due to the lack of such a (no longer) clear meeting point. "Opposite Knobs and Knockers" should be a better indication as the shop is still there.
Aisling and James were excelent - everything was thoroughly explained and made interesting and fun. I got to hold a lamb, so I'd say it was a perfect experience just from that. We got a bit of rain, but since I love the rain and the cold, for me it was just the perfect weather. All in all, a perfect day out on the beautiful Irish countryside.
This was a great day trip. You can really tell that the Irish love to tell a good story. Our tour guide Anthony was great, his stories were fun and informative. He also gave great advice on where to go in both Kilkenny and Dublin. Unlike most other tours, we had enough time to explore at our own leisure at all our stops.
We enjoyed our day trip to Kilkenny Castle, Glendalough and the sheep herding demonstration. The castle was interesting, the hike in Glendalough to the lake was invigorating, the history lesson at St Kevin’s was illuminating and the sheep dog demonstration was just plain fun! It was a wonderful day trip from Dublin.
Reliable service and well-organized trip. We made the most of the day and saw many beautiful places. Although, I felt that the time spent in Wicklow Mountains National Park was quite short (1h30min), we had to hurry to see the Lower and Upper Lake as well.
