Skip the crowded tour bus for this private chauffeur led tour to two of Ireland's most iconic sites.

From Dublin or Athlone, venture to the heart of Kilkenny along the River Nore to explore Kilkenny Castle, the majestic and ancestral home of the Butler's and Ormond's since 1391.   Marvel at the tapestries and stunning picture gallery.  Stroll the parade grounds and gardens at one of Ireland's most photographed sites.  

Spend the afternoon with a visit to one of Ireland's most iconic sites:  The Rock of Cashel.  Also called Cashel of the Kings or St. Patrick's Rock, this ancient site, home of the kings of Munster was once a rival to Tara as a significant royal center.  Besides the Irish crosses, round tower and ruins of the Cathedral, visit the gem of Cashel: Cormac's Chapel.  Cormac's Chapel pre dates the ruined Cathedral and is arguably one of the finest example of a Hiberno-Romanesque church in all of Ireland with the original stone roof still intact and some of the finest frescos in Ireland.
