This was an amazing tour. The views were beautiful and it was amazing seeing the Blarney castle and the City of Cork. The Rock of Cashel was amazing to see and there were some amazing views. Our bus driver Phil was hilarious with tons of stories, information and made our long trips entertaining!

I have been to Ireland before and to both Blarney Castle and County Cork but this tour was just amazing as the first time!! There are also a few really cool stops along the way! While it is a long journey for some I definitely think it was worth the price and the time! Thank you!!

Whole experience was amazing! The Blarney Castle was our favorite! Our tour guide made the long bus rides very entertaining and interesting with her anecdotes and Irish history. I definitely recommend this tour for a day out of Dublin.

Wonderful tour with an extremely knowledgeable and funny guide named Ita. Saw lots; my group especially enjoyed Blarney Castle and the English Market. Would highly recommend this tour company.

This was the first tour I took in Ireland and I loved it. If the driver gives you the option to spend less time in Cork and more at Blarney, take it! The castle itself and just the whole atmosphere of the place made me fall in love with it. I would take this tour again and highly recommend it!

The tour guide was so knowledgeable and helpful. It allows you to sit back and enjoy the countryside and not have to drive.

Such a great day! Gerry was the best tour guide. He knew a lot about each of the stops and gave information during the bus ride on things we were passing and on Ireland in general. This trip is definitely one worth taking!

Very nice well preserved castle, be prepared for a long line to kiss the Blarney Stone. Ride was smooth, and comfortable. Tour guide was informative and very friendly. Cork was interesting but could have skipped it.

Great trip all around. Traveled in a small van instead of huge bus. Very personal experience. Excellent guide. He was humorous and knew quite a lot about everything. Wasn't much to see in cork city but the stop for food was welcome.

Our tour guide Colin made the day! He was funny, informative, and truly a performer with his Irish stories and songs. We traveled in a van which made the tour more personal. After viewing the Rock of Cashel, we returned to our van to find out that it would not start! Colin called his supervisor, and we walked into the village to have coffee. Although unplanned, it was a great break. On our way again, we passed through lovely Irish countryside to Cork. After kissing the Blarney Stone, we headed to the Blarney Woolen Mills and then into the city of Cork. Cork's main area is easy to navigate. Because of the van breakdown, we arrived back in Dublin later than expected, but we thoroughly enjoyed the day trip, Our fellow travelers were interesting people, Colin was great, and kissing the Blarney Stone should be on everybody's bucket list.

We had a great time driving through the countryside to get to Blarney Castle. It was great to stop and see other sites along the way, and was well worth the money! Our tour guide was not only informative, but very fun and light-hearted as well. Great time!

I can't say enough about this tour. First off the guide was so very nice and very knowledgeable about every stop we made that day. Blarney Castle was so very amazing and so was The Rock of Cashel and cork was nice but hardly anything was open that day. I would do this tour again.
