Blarney Castle day tour including Rock of Cashel and Cork City is a must do!
Pauline_M
, Aug 2022
Apart from the initial confusion regarding pick-up point the tour was great. Paul our tour guide/driver was friendly, informative and entertained with stories and humour. The sites we visited were stunning, a must do! Would have loved a bit more time in Cork. Overall a great experience.

Kissing Blarney
Lee_M
, Aug 2022
Fascinating day trip! Coaches are comfortable. Paul was our guide/driver, and was wonderful. Blarney Castle was increfible. Wear comfortable shoes with traction if you plan to head to the top to kiss the Blarney Stone. Give yourself plenty of time to explore the grounds/gardens; exquisite & beautiful. Be sure to take jackets/layers as the temps shift quite alot. Abundant photo opportunities...make sure to have plenty of space on your phone/camera. Highly recommend this trip. Visit to Cork was short.

Richard made this tour exceptional!

Our tour guide/driver was amazing! Richard shared so much information throughout the day, made sure everyone was comfortable and would ask if everyone agreed with the timings, meeting spots, etc. It was a long day but the itinerary was great and we felt we received excellent value for our money with this tour. We would strongly recommend this tour to anyone!

A harmony experience at Blarney Castle
Yana_S
, Aug 2022
Blarney Castle is amazing. Full of history, folklore, beauty and relaxing atmosphere. The gardens are magnificent. You could spend the entire day there without getting bored. There are multiple settings where the Lord of the Rings was shot. There are also horses and a lake of swans to complete the picture of harmony. .

Spent more time at Circle K than Rock of Cashel
dbussick
, Aug 2022
Time was cut short at both Rock of Cashel and Cork. But on the plus side we did get to stand outside a Circle K for an hour while the tour company put us on another bus. There was nothing wrong with ours, the bus company needed to work out some logistics on their end (something about needing our bus in Cork the next day) and they decided the best way to do that was to cut our tour short. Waste of time. Never again.

First visit to Ireland

Richard was a very personable guide , made it fun and made the time go by. Wireless could use improvement in staying consistent . I appreciate that there were trash bags so for us to place ours. And that he opened both doors for us to be out as long as it was safe . Of course , there wasn’t enough time to see everything but that’s expected . Kissing the stone was fun !

great day trip

We had a great day trip to Blarney. Driver was Richard and he was quite entertaining. He worked hard to keep us on schedule. The whole trip was great but Blarney was really worth seeing. Richard rearranged our itinerary to visit Blarney last because there was a cruise ship visiting earlier in the day and that really paid off. Overall had a great time.

Just okay

No tour guide. Just a bus driver who was entertaining, however, the historical commentary was absent. Also at least 5 people who did not speak any English and were consistently late.

Great location great tour guide
Wayne_S
, Aug 2022
Highly recommended! By far the best two parts of the trip were Blarney (the castle was great, but the gardens around it were even better), and our very knowledgeable and entertaining tour guide Bryan. Bryan loved to sing was knowledgeable about everything from ancient ruins to modern politics. Rock of Cashel was good, Cork a bit uninspiring, but the rest was wonderful.

Richard was amazing! Best tour guide as of yet. He was funny, informative, and entertaining and he is really what makes this tour worth the trip. The scenery was gorgeous but he is the reason to take this tour. I learned so much about Ireland and history as well as the people. Well worth the trip.
