The Blarney Castle and Cork Day Trip from Dublin was excellent. The grounds of the Blarney Castle were beautiful with flowers and mountain streams. Getting to the Blarney Stone to kiss it was tough, but my daughter made the journey to the top of the castle and "kissed the Blarney stone." Cork and the villages on the way were quaint. Michael, our driver, was wonderful, friendly and very informative. Good trip all around and I would definitely recommend the trip.
