Our tour to Blarney Castle and Cork exceeded our expectations. Our tour guide, Pat and driver, Patrick helped to make the trip enjoyable, educational and entertaining. I highly recommend this wonderful day trip.
I absolutely loved this tour! Our guide and driver, Derrick, was great and made sure we had plenty of time to see the sights. This tour was one of the highlights of my entire trip to Ireland!

Our guide Bud was great! Very informative and entertaining. Rock of Cashel was fantastic as was Blarney Castle. Quite the lineup to get up into The castle to kiss the stone but worth it! Full day with lots of time to explore on our own. Good shops and cafes at Blarney with a nice variety of food for lunch.
Cork was interesting to see.
Bud was our bus driver and tour guide. He was wonderful, warm and friendly. Gave us a lot of information and history about the sites we went to and info. along the way about what we were passing. The bus was comfortable and i felt very safe with him driving. It was a great day. The trip was well planned.
Our tour guide was so funny. We got to kiss the blarney stone and do a little bit of shopping while there. Wasn't much to see in cork where we didn't have anything planned but got food and looked around the little shops on your break.
I would definitely recommend these trips to others, however, you're on someone else's schedule, which can be a downfall if you like the place or don't like it.
Pack food for yourself throughout the day, you only make so many stops and if you eat often you will be hungry! Our tour guide Phil was great!
Jennifer or Jessica was a great guide. She provided the perfect mix keeping the group engaged without being annoying. She was knowledgeable, played great music and had the perfect voice to listen to. Larry was a boss...I mean anyone that can parallel park a bus like he did totally awesome.
Both kept their cool when twice not me folks reported later than the agreed upon time. Way to stay professional even though I know it had to be as annoying as hell!
I would definitely take a tour with this group again!
Loved this tour. I even climbed to the top of the castle and for my age, it was quite a climb. LOL
Very enjoyable . The guide was very knowledgeable. Really fun people and lots to see
Great trip, beautiful scenery and an awesome driver/tour guide, Derrick. Definitely recommend.
Jennifer and Larry were amazing!!!!! Tour was amazing....the Rock of Cashel was my favorite part of the trip. The guides add so much information that really enhance the entire tour.
We had a great time on this tour! Had lots of time at the castle and time to fully walk around the grounds. The bus was comfortable. Our guide was very friendly and funny. He told great stories, gave lots of information, and really seemed to enjoy his job. He really catered to the groups needs and made it a fun day. I would recommend this tour if you really want a full day out of Dublin to see the countryside and see some great castles. Maybe pack a lunch as the options around the castle were limited and expensive. Huge thanks to our guide :
This was a great trip. Our tour leader, Jennifer, not only provided wonderful historical information about Ireland in general but provided archeological photos that were passed around the tour bus. Our driver, Tuck, was right on point getting us to our destinations with marvelous driving! Blarney Castle was a treasure and Cork City was GREAT! Jennifer pointed us to several places for lunch which worked out well. This is a tour not to be missed and lucky you if you have Jennifer and Tuck.
Such a fun experience now I can tell everyone I kissed the Blarney Stone! Definitely a must do! If you want to kiss the stone then you better rush up to get in line first. Be careful on the steps going up to the stone!
Blarney Castle was a lot of fun. Great stuff to do and amazing shops just off the grounds where the bus park is. Beware the stairs going to the stone are steep and winding but the view from the top is amazing. A lot to do and see here. Cork was a great little city to visit. Shopping is really good here but in the time allotted you can't shop and see some of the sites since they are too far away from each other if you visit the church you just have enough time to get there, see it and get back. But a lot of fun overall
Guide Jennifer and drive Larry were excellent. A great trip with lots to see and plenty of fascinating information. Really enjoyed the music on the coach too!
Our tour guide was super knowledgeable, and the sites were beautiful.
Wonderful weather, beautiful beyond belief, kissed the stone, lots of Chapstick.
This tour was a great way to spend a day in Ireland. We learned some history and saw and tasted some great things!! Would recommend this to anyone.
The driver/guide gets highest marks, we did the Blarney Castle in the afternoon and the wait to kiss the stone was under 20 minutes, we got lucky but I think it was the good planning of the tour as well. Cork is a cool city, we could have spent all day there, a reason to come back to Ireland I guess. A long day but worth the time.
Great trip. Our driver/tour guide was excellent. Lots of information of the area.
