The Blarney castle grounds were AMAZING!! I loved this tour. Definitely worth it. You get to crawl through the tiny castle, and explore the beautiful grounds. You also get some nice time in Cork for lunch to experience Irish coffee and the beer!! Our guide was so passionate and knowledgeable.
The Driver was very entertaining and knowledgeable about the castle and the surroundings. It would of been nice to mention that trips would be appreciated by the man holding our legs as we kissed the Blarney stone. I gave all my tips to the Harpist outside the castle and didn't have any left for the gentleman holding my feet. The trip was fun and the castle and grounds were fantastic. I'd do it again and will recommend the trip to my friends. Wonderful!
Tour was amazing. Great informative guide. Knew how to avoid the crowds, so didn't queue too long. lots to see and do, so a tiring day but well worth it
I was glad we spent quite a lot of time in Blarney rather than Cork.
Would have liked a little more time in Cork--really enjoyed the city--maybe an extra 1/2 hour?
I slept in on my scheduled day and the tour office was nice enough to change it for me for no charge. The driver was super friendly and pointed things out along the way and I now have the gift of gab!
We were extramily lucky, beautifull weather for the beautiful seen.
The trip was well organized and the tour guide/bus driver was very knowledgeable about the country and the sites that were visited. The distance travelled between Dublin and Cork is quite lengthy - so you might want to consider the train/bus tour option - or to even stay over in Cork and return with the bus trip the next day. That was an option that I didn't realize I could take.
Loved the tour! Our tour guide, Philip English was wonderful! He was informative, funny and even sang some Irish folk songs. His favorite expression was "chillax". A great day of touring the sights blessed with a touch of good weather! We made the most of our day on our Irish vacation.
Fantastic in spite of the weather ! Our driver and guide Gerard was so knowledgeable and a truly Irish man! A bonus in our trip was the rock of Cashel which we visited at the beginning of our trip, turn up to be a great decision because of the weather ! At Blarney we had a nice lunch at the old stables ! a must is a visit to the Woolen Mills
It was great! Tour guide was knowledgeable and entertaining, everything ran smoothly and on time. All around great day on our trip.
Fantastic. Enjoyed it all, driver terrific on his knowledge.
Blarney Castle truly magestic.
