Wicklow sheepdogs demo, Irish country manor estate and scenic mountain drive to Glendalough monastery

This private tour is ideal for someone that wants to stay within a reasonably short distance from Dublin but also getting away from the city to explore an ancient monastery at Glendalough as well as a gorgeous Wicklow mountains & lakes drive with lots of fresh air and scenic spots to stretch the legs. Itinerary will be tailored especially to you on enquiry and could also include a guided tour of an amazing 1750 Irish country estate home, a private demonstration of real working Irish sheepdogs with a genuine sheep farmer or even luxury whiskey tasting at a Wicklow mountainside distillery. If you are lucky and it’s lambing time you may get to hold some newborn lambs or maybe even see some sheepdog puppies.


Back in Dublin early evening time for your dinner or fun in the city!


Full Kilkenny Experience

This custom private tour is another for those guests that want to stay within a reasonably short return time to Dublin, 1.5 hours in Kilkenny’s case.

Explore the marble city and it’s beautiful original late medieval laneways and townhouses as you stroll the medieval mile, from St Canices cathedral with its 1000 year old round tower which you can climb to the huge and historic Kilkenny castle which dominates from its strategic position on the River Nore.

Kilkenny is also a place to have fun with a strong local people focused pub scene, many locally owned stores & boutiques for shopping and also lots of whiskey tasting available too! For sports fans and active people, we can arrange some lessons in hurling for you, a native Irish field sport and a true religion in this sports mad county!

Itinerary is bespoke and will be tailored exclusively to you on enquiry

Back to Dublin early evening in time for your dinner reservation.

The House of Waterford crystal & Kilkenny castle combo


Come with me and explore the south east of Ireland on a journey that takes us to the Viking city of Waterford to see the master craftsmen work at Waterford Crystal before we head to Kilkenny’s medieval mile and enjoy a guided tour of the epic Kilkenny castle with its 800 years of history. A local lunch and a pub stop if you like before getting you back to Dublin in time for your evening dinner reservation. This private tour is custom to you and itinerary will be tailored on enquiry.


It’s a long way to Tipperary tour

This private tour brings us deep into Irelands best farmland known as the Golden Vale in County Tipperary. As well as beautiful green rural scenery, we will also get to enjoy a guided tour of what I consider to Ireland best preserved castle, ancestral home of the Butler family as well as a tour of St Patrick’s Rock also known as The Rock of Cashel or Cashel of the Kings. This sacred site was where native Irish kings were crowned later on it was handed to the church and became a very important location, literally a bedrock of the church as it’s sits up high above the town of Cashel as if floating in the air.

A local cafe lunch in the quaint little town or maybe even quality food and drink in the bishops palace is a lovely local Tipperary experience before we head back up to Dublin in time for you evening plans!

Itinerary as always is bespoke to you and will be tailored at the enquiry process.
