The tour coach driver was a great guy, Kevin. He was knowledgeable,funny and well versed I. History. He also made the day memorable and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
Kissing the Blarney Stone is a must for all tourist but it was also pretty gross (group pressure thing, after making the climb and waiting in line, you just have to do it, it's the law...ha ha). It is one of the most beautiful location if the weather cooperates. Could have skipped Cork City but I am still glad we stopped (I now know why my ancestors left, gray unattractive and atleast 20 years behind the times). Our tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable. All in all a five star tour
Great day out on all levels. Very friendly, informative guide and a comfortable coach. Wonderful views from Blarney Castle and a real adventure getting to the Stone. The Gardens are a fantastic site with the Poison Garden truly fascinating. Quick stop in Cork and time for a really tasty coffee at Cork Coffee Roasters - watch the world walk by...
This was a great day! Phil is very knowledgable and highly entertaining.
Phillip, our guide, was great! He was educational and very fun to spend the day with.
Our guide was knowledgeable. Enjoyed the castle and lunch in the city of Cork.
The tour of Cashel, Cork and Blarney was wonderful. The tour was provided by Extreme Ireland and our driver/guide was Dave, who was extremely knowledgeable and provided a history of Ireland throughout the day. At Cashel, the chapel is currently being renovated but the site provides great photo opportunities and the town provides nice shops. Blarney castle and grounds were breath-takening. Be forewarned that if you go into the castle to kiss the Blarney Stone, the stairs are numerous, narrow and slick if it rained. The tour was on a Sunday so when we went into Cork, most shops had not opened if they had Sunday hours at all.
Great tour. Wonderful bus driver and very informative about tour and Irish history. Thoroughly enjoyed day - wish it could have lasted longer!
The tour guide Dave was amazing!! He gave a full range of history on our tour and was all round a great tour guide and bus driver! The city of cork and Blarney castle were both amazing to see and I would recommend anyone going on a tour to take this one!
Wonderful tour. Wayne, our tour guide, was fabulous and very knowledgeable, not to mention a lot of fun. I would highly recommend this day trip to anyone visiting Dublin. Cork and Blarney Castle are beautiful. Don't miss this trip!
The tour group was small so the tour guide was able to give us a lot of backgroup information, trivia and cultural information. The guide was very considerate and very knowledgable. VIsiting the Blarney Castle was amazing!
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.
