We would highly recommend this day trip! Our tour guide, Tony, is so intelligent knowledgeable! He was able to give us the history of Ireland through stories and songs that made what we were seeing come alive. The Irish countryside is beautiful, and Tony's knowledge of the history of the area was excellent. Johnny, the driver threw in a couple of songs, also! We had a wonderful day exploring the Blarney Castle and Rock of Cashel. This is a trip worth taking, especially if you are lucky enough to get Tony as your guide and Johnny as your driver!

Wonderful day, excellent tour guide and great weather made this a super tour. We experienced nothing but courtesy, kindness and friendship on the bus, in the towns and at Blarney Castle. It was a day of beautiful scenery and pure Irish culture and folklore and we loved every minute of it. Would have loved to see the bus continue to Bunratty Castle which is not too much further but super tour and excellent price. We are very happy we did this instead of trying to drive ourselves. Would definitely recommend to others.

Long day but well worth it. We were accompanied by the gregarious Joey on this tour. As he drove us through the rolling hills of Cork he knowledgeably recounted the histories of the area and entertained us with his singing. Would have liked more time at Blarney but on the whole day was great either way.

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.
