Kilkenny to Dublin

We begin our day with a scenic drive through the lush landscape of County Carlow and into Wicklow, stopping at Ireland’s oldest working woollen mills, in the pretty village of Avoca, where we learn of the time-old tradition of weaving. We then make our way along the valley, into the ancient monastic ruins of Glendalough, meaning ‘valley of the two lakes’. We take a visit to the famous Glendalough Monastic Settlement to learn about ‘the land of saints and scholars’, before taking a walk along the lakeside to the picturesque Poulanass Waterfall. We finish our day with a spectacular scenic drive through the Wicklow Mountains National park, over the Sally Gap, where those who fancy pedalling will be rewarded with a breath-taking cycle back down towards Dublin.
