I have wonderful memories of the sites during our day trip from Dublin to Cork, Blarney Castle and Cobh. It really is a great trip to take. Our train was delayed do to signaling problems in Mallow so we had 2.5 hours at Blarney Castle and Woolen Mills instead of 3.5 hours. It was enough time but close as I had to rush my shopping after we ate lunch :) Our tour guide was very nice and knowledgeable but he normally does 2 other tours and hadn't done our tour in a while. He was very attentive.
