What people are saying about Kilkenny
We really enjoyed our coach trip to the Wicklow mountains and Kilkenny, but was a bit disappointed we didn’t get a plush paddy wagon coach, with WiFi as promised in their leaflets. Our coach was was quite tatty, my seat in particular had a wedge of foam sticking out into my back, with mould near the speaker above us, and a window which was all misted up with condensation (all other windows on the coach was fine). Although that was disappointing, it was well worth seeing the Wicklow mountains and Kilkenny. If you like looking at the little shops rather than the area, my advice would be to decline the offer to go on the land train, as we did that and wished we didn’t as it left 1 hour 20 mins to find something to eat and shop! So it was a bit rushed. But good day.
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.
The students enjoyed the informative lectures about I's history by the bus driver, but would have liked more walking in the mountains and less time in Gwendalough. We were pleased that there were no forced singing or silly jokes on the bus. The driver was very decent and friendly.
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.
Sheila was our guide. I learned a lot about history. The dog show was a nice break in the trip. The guide and the driver were kind and well organized. We had a fabulous time, and good luck with the whether.
