We took 2 day tours by train and this one was the best. Traveling by train is the only way to go to see the beautiful Irish countryside. The day was beautiful and the grounds at Blarney Castle were to die for. We loved exploring the castle and especially kissing the Blarney stone. Touring the cathedral and museum at Cobh was fantastic. We really liked our bus driver and tour guide as they really enhanced our experience and made the day fun.
This was a great trip but wish there would have been more time at the Blarney Castle and let time in Cork. The part of cork that you see is just shops and no real history.
The bus driver was great, very entertaining. The Blarney Castle is something to be visited. Absolutely beautiful. I thought the tour would be guided and we were really on our own. Enjoyed walking the grounds but was hoping for an explanation of the history, etc...disappointed with visit to Cork. Not sure what the purpose of this stop was. I would have rather gone somewhere else. Most of the day was spent riding in a bus.
Amazing Day, Blarney Castle gardens are so beautiful.
Extreme Ireland Tours were great, the driver sang to us and everything, he gave great historic facts and stories along the trip.

The trip was amazing. Our bus driver Mike Murphy was a great host. Enjoy the day.
This was the BEST TRIP!!! We have been on this trip several times with different tours and this was by far and away the best. The Tour Director and bus driver were very accommodating and knowledgeable about this part of the country. The Titanic exhibit was quite an experience, to relive that last port-of-call…., the English market in Cork, the Blarney castle and of course the woolen mills shopping. The tour director took the time to meet and visit with each person on the trip making it a person trip with him and your group (Dave) was WONDERFUL going above and beyond to make this a special trip for everyone. We would book this trip again.
This was a wonderful tour. Visiting the Blarney Castle and the Rock of Cashel was the highlight of out trip to Ireland! Our guide was wonderful. We would highly recommend this tour.
Trip was well organized and the guide was great.Only negative comment:way too much time at Blarney Castle and at the Titanic exhibit. I'm sure this extra time is needed at the height of the tourist season but not in February. Would have liked to wander Cork or walk along the water.
This was an amazing tour. The views were beautiful and it was amazing seeing the Blarney castle and the City of Cork. The Rock of Cashel was amazing to see and there were some amazing views. Our bus driver Phil was hilarious with tons of stories, information and made our long trips entertaining!
Wow! What a wonderful trip and such a wonderful guide! It was an early start but that gave us the most spectacular view when we got to Blarney Castle. As luck would have it the low angle of the sun and the slight kiss of an Irish Blessing (mist) gave us a spectacular double rainbow ringing the tower parapet. We also had another rainbow as we got to St. Patrick's Rock in Cashel. And all along, our guide, Philip, kept us entertained with Irish history and folklore. We highly recommend this trip!
Would have liked to have spent more time at Blarney castle, and not seen the town at all.
Whole experience was amazing! The Blarney Castle was our favorite! Our tour guide made the long bus rides very entertaining and interesting with her anecdotes and Irish history. I definitely recommend this tour for a day out of Dublin.
Wonderful tour with an extremely knowledgeable and funny guide named Ita. Saw lots; my group especially enjoyed Blarney Castle and the English Market. Would highly recommend this tour company.
We had an amazing day right from our departure at Dublin Rail , to our tour of the beautiful Blarney Castle. Climbed to the top of the castle to kiss the Blarney Stone it was great! Very well organised our tour guide was amazing so full of knowledge and very informative.
I have been to Ireland before and to both Blarney Castle and County Cork but this tour was just amazing as the first time!! There are also a few really cool stops along the way! While it is a long journey for some I definitely think it was worth the price and the time! Thank you!!
