What an amazing 12 hour day that was well designed and thought out! Michael was the best tour guide we've ever had. He had a wealth of knowledge about the history of Ireland, told funny jokes and even sang us some traditional irish tunes. Perfect day!
A really enjoyable experience with a kissing of the Blarney Stone and a two-hour free
time in downtown Cork. Plus our bus driver kept us continuously amused with his many stories and his singing of Irish songs.
Was a wonderful trip...enjoyed the small towns....our tour guide, Wayne, was without a doubt the best tour guide I have ever had...he knew so much history and little details, and he was verrrry funny...made the tour a real delight...hope to get him on our next trip to Ireland...
Rock of Cashel and Blarney castle are an absolute must when in Ireland. Very nicely organized. Of course the Blarney gardens are huge and you need at least half a day to explore them but don't forget to stop by the Blarney Woolen Mills. Despite the long drives the bus makes enough stops to stretch your legs, have a coffee or stop by the restrooms.
One of the things that made this tour was our driver Wayne. He made the travel time between stops very enjoyable. He knew how to mix his entertaining talk with some time to just enjoy the scenery. Each stop was very good. We knew how much time we had at each stop and when to be back.
My only thought was I would have liked a little more time at Blarney Castle due to the time we had to wait in line to "Kiss the Blarney Stone" The wait was not in anyway the fault of the tour company, but due to the volume of people who want to see the attraction.
I would highly recommend this tour.
This was a hassle-free way out of Dublin that allows you to see some of the beautiful Irish countryside as well as the tour stops. The Blarney Castle grounds are beautiful. Our guide, Liam, was fantastic! Overall, a great trip!
Very enjoyable. The castles involved in this tour were amazing. The scenery was spectacular. The tour guide was excellent, sang, and told wonderful stories. As the Irish say, "It was lovely."
Excellent tour! Our tour guide was a lovely man that showed us some really cool places! Loved it!
Great experience I would highly recommend. Tour guide was very good at telling the history of the area we were in, in brief and humorous stories, and was very entertaining over all. He also knew when to keep quiet and let us enjoy the scenery around us. Would do it again tomorrow.
tour was great to see the blarney castle and stone- Eddi tour guide was great.
Lovely tour (: bus, driver and locations :). Recommend adjusting itinerary to allow more time at Blarney castle i.e. say like 2-3 hours there. Highly recommended.
Great tour, well worth the cost and time. My grandsons and I had only three days in Dublin and this was a great choice for us.
