Your day is packed with seeing Cashel Rock, Blarney Castle and Cork City. Blarney Castle and its surroundings make this day trip, though. Honestly, I wish we could've stayed there all day! Our tour guide, Joey, was yet again very informative and entertaining! You need to get out of Dublin for a day and see what else Ireland has to offer. You won't be disappointed!

It rained the entire day, but boy was this excursion fun! Kissing the Blarney Stone has been on my bucket list for years and it was so satisfying to finally accomplish it. If you have a day to spare in Dublin, go on this great excursion!

I had a wonderful experience! The tour guide was great and the ride was a comfortable and interesting one. Be advised it is somewhat of a drive from Dublin to the Blarney stone but there are a few rest stops along the way. Overall a wonderful experience.

Our trip to Blarney castle was great... My sister is 80 years old but she was such a trooper. Climbed to the top of the castle to kiss the Blarney stone.. Our bus driver plus being the tour guide was so fun.. Would do it again.

Our tour guide was very informative and funny. We went with the Paddy's Paddywagon tour. Cough was a beautiful costal town to walk around. Cork was a bit busy and mostly for shopping. Blarney Castle was breathtaking.

This trip was a highlight of our visit to Ireland. Gerard, our driver/tour guide, was excellent! Not only was he very interesting and knowledgeable, but his sense of humor, and the stories he told about the country were very entertaining. Cork, Cashen and the Blarney Castle are must see areas of Ireland in our opinion. We are very pleased we booked this trip having never been to Ireland. It was very well organized, informational, and comfortable throughout the entire day.

this was such an awesome trip. we started off by going to the Rock of Cashel which was breath taking. it was a little cold and windy, but it was so worth it. we then set off for Cork City center where we did a little shopping around and ate lunch. lastly we went to the Blarney Castle. we were given about two hours to d as we pleased. I practically ran to kiss the stone the line wasn't too bad but walking up to the top is a little scary. definitely not something for those who are scared of heights. i cant wait to go on some of my other tours i have booked through viator

Great tour. Gerard, our guide, was very knowledgeable and friendly. Left on time and returned on time with no feeling of being rushed. Highly recommend this tour. There's a lot more to see at Blarney Castle than the stone.

Great driver and tour guide! I never knew how beautiful the Blarney Castle was until this trip. Yes, we kissed the Blarney Stone, which was fun, but I also thoroughly enjoyed the grounds of the castle. Stunning!

Awesome trip! The sites Cashel, Blarney and Cork were well worth the travel time. When you get to Blarney, don't spend the whole time at the castle: be sure to explore the gardens as well the Poison Garden and the Druid sites especially. Our tour guide, Shawn, was fantastic, making the trip entertaining, really funny and super informative. Highly recommended.
