The Normans made a big impact on Irelands landscape. Particularly along the Ancient East, Kilkenny, Trim, Waterford even Dublin itself where all heavily influenced by the Normans. If you are planning on touring the island, this tour will help you gain a deeper understanding and a help you imagine what many of our National Monuments looked like the day they were built!
Driving around a wet and wild day, sipping fine Irish whiskey in between stops, exploring castles, listening to stories about a crazy female knight, how a guy used stampeding cows to defeat Celtic warriors and plenty more. We finished the day in a small pub with a huge platter of local fish and chips and the best craft ale I’ve ever tasted. This was hands down the best tour I’ve ever been on!
