The tour was amazing. It was great seeing the countryside and the castles. Beautiful landscapes from atop Blarney Castle and serene views from the Rock of Cashle. Only part that was not for me was the stop in Cork. Just not interested in the shopping and Guinness is better than Murphys.
This tour was amazing! Cork was beautiful, Blarney castle was great. Our tour guide was very friendly and informative. All six adults in my group were glad we picked this tour.
My husband John and I give our recent tour of Cork and Blarney Castle 5 stars and then some! Our guide, Norman, with his knowledge and Irish charm, made this tour enjoyable and memorable. We would no doubt recommend this tour to anyone visiting Ireland. John and Rebecca McLaughlin
We really enjoyed our day trip to the Rock of Cashel, Blarney Castle and Cork. The bus driver, Bud, was lovely and shared interesting facts along the way and always kept us entertained with a joke. I was a bit disappointed in the Cork stop - it seems like it was just to shop at department stores.
We loved the trip to Blarney. Our guide was outstandingand a lot of fun.
The only negative was that we had to wait in line at Blarney castle for over two hours. It was understandable though because of the huge number of Americans that were in Ireland for the Notre Dame-Navy football game.
We loved Ireland and will definitely be returning. The Irish people were very kind to us in all areas of the country!
This was a great tour! Our guide, Conrad, was wonderful and knew so much about Irelan and it's history. He was very friendly and we created a great bond throughout the trip.
We wish that there would have been less time at the Rock of Cashel and more time at Blarney Castle. There was so much to see at the second stop, we didn't have enough time and even ended up being late getting back to the bus :/ and we still didn't get to see everything we had hoped to!
Over all, a fantastic tour and a great use of our money. Conrad stopped at a few small villages during our trip for bathroom/coffee breaks. He even knew a great deal of information about these small villages as well! He also gave great recommendations on where to eat.
Definitely would recommend this tour and this tour company!
Superb day tour trip. Our guide was Ross. He was very knowledgable of little details on the way out of Dublin and at the various sites. The grounds of Blarney Castle are huge, give yourself some time to take it all in.
We had a great time driving through the countryside to get to Blarney Castle. It was great to stop and see other sites along the way, and was well worth the money! Our tour guide was not only informative, but very fun and light-hearted as well. Great time!
I can't say enough about this tour. First off the guide was so very nice and very knowledgeable about every stop we made that day. Blarney Castle was so very amazing and so was The Rock of Cashel and cork was nice but hardly anything was open that day. I would do this tour again.
Wonderful tour. Meeting at the train station was easy and the train rides were comfortable. The guides were great and the information they provided about each location was nice. Blarney Castle, Corke, and Cobh were very interesting and beautiful. The time spent at each location was appropriate and the food at lunch was amazing. Would recommend this to anyone who is visiting Ireland/Dublin, And make sure you kiss the Blarney stone.
Our guide was informative and helpful. We learned lots about Ireland's past as well as visiting Blarney Castle (with enough time to kiss the Blarney Stone) and Cobh.
The guides were easily identified at Heuston Station. The day was well organised and we were able to see everything without being rushed.
The drive is long, and boring. Ross was our guide he suggested not to buy things in the Blarney castle gift shop because of expense, but if you don't there are no other shops at Cork that have those particular kissing the Blarney Stone souvenirs. My daughter was upset about this as she was particularly happy about her Blarney experience. The grounds are beautiful and Blarney Castle is the best part of the tour. Cork is very hustle and bustle, but we found a restaurant named Kelly's on a back street serving freshly made food. It was wonderful! And very reasonably priced for a family of four. No interaction on the way back made it a very long boring ride. Maybe a different tour would have been better, I would say it was good but not great.
Very interesting day visiting some lovely places. Blarney Castle and grounds is absolutley stunning. However access to Blarney stone not as easy as you think.
Really lovely guide who gave us a full history of Ireland on the drive. Blarney Castle was lovely but it would have been nicer to have spent a little longer. Cork was also good, but as it was a Sunday many things were closed so this could have been changed timing-wise. Rock of Castell had beautiful views and was a lovely end to the day. Would recommend this tour to anyone.
We really enjoyed our tour guide, Noel. He was so informative, personable, and made our tour much more fun! The tour itself is great: great breakfast on the rail; Blarney Castle is a must-see in Ireland; Cork is a must-see, also!
