Dave, the tour guide and driver was so informative, and funny as well. His commentary and history lessons were great. After the tour ended, I felt that I had a fairly good understanding / overview of Irish history and its peoples.

Despite a very rainy and early start in Dublin, this tour was a beautiful way to spend the day. Definitely an all-day adventure; I was exhausted when we returned to the city but in a good way. Our tour guide, Ger, was very knowledgable and entertaining, but I was pleased to learn that it wasn't the sort of tour where we were all expected to stay together - at Blarney and in Cork we had a few hours to explore on our own, which was exactly the sort of experience I had wanted. Even the ride in the coach was pleasant: beautiful scenery and a few pit stops to stretch our legs and get coffee.
I had been desperate to get back to Blarney again, since it was my favorite part of Ireland as a child, and this tour was the perfect way to get there. I recommend it to anyone who wants to get out of Dublin but is traveling without a car, since it's easy and relaxing and you get to see some beautiful places.

We really enjoyed our trip to the Emerald Isle. Our tour guide, Eddie was great and all of the sites we visited were breath taking. We are planning a trip to Italy in the fall and I will consider using Viator for the tours there. Thanks for your part in sharing our Ireland experience.

Loved this tour as it had a few stops on the way before we got to the castle. The weather held up for us as well so all in all a very nice day. Shopping was great too!

This tour was fantastic. Our tour guide Wayne was AMAZING!!! He really took care of us and answered questions and joked around. It really made this trip wonderful. Next time I am in Ireland I would love to have him as a guide again. I can't say it enough, it was great.

Wow! What a wonderful trip and such a wonderful guide! It was an early start but that gave us the most spectacular view when we got to Blarney Castle. As luck would have it the low angle of the sun and the slight kiss of an Irish Blessing (mist) gave us a spectacular double rainbow ringing the tower parapet. We also had another rainbow as we got to St. Patrick's Rock in Cashel. And all along, our guide, Philip, kept us entertained with Irish history and folklore. We highly recommend this trip!
