I guide was excellent and has a vast knowledge of Ireland and its history, he answered all our questions and kept us happy all the time. Our coach broke down, we were so lucky that when that happened we were near a petrol station with a mini market, we just wait for about 30 mins and a new coach was sent so we could complete the rest of our tour.
Blarney Castel area is fabulous! A must do tour if one goes to Ireland!
Had a really good day with great weather which was a bonus. Barry our driver and guide was a good bloke and he shared lot's of stories and history as we drove along as well as a bit of Irish music. There was just the right amount of time at each stop. Blarney was definitely the highlight. Make sure you go on the walk where you see the witches stone, steps, fire etc.
Enjoyed this tour. Nice variety of activities. Castles,green fields and snooping. Great trip!
Well worth the trip. Driver highly informed and disciplined.
Although it was an early bus, my children and I had a great time at all the stops. The Rock of Cashel, the Blarney Castle, Cork were all worth the trip. The driver was extremely knowledgeable and helpful and she made sure we learned a few Irish phrases to help us. =) Great value. =)
Blarney Castle was amazing. It felt like going on an adventure, climbing up the spiral rock staircase, exploring the caves, walking through the gardens, and seeing waterfalls. Favorite thing I did while in Ireland.
Our tour guide/driver Phil was AWESOME! He was so enthusiastic and had a wonderful singing voice. He was very knowledgeable and I wish he had taken us around the sites instead of leaving us to our own devices. It was great walking around by ourselves but having a partial tour would have been greatly appreciated. We also didn't have enough time at each location but it was a great introduction to each site and we know where we want to revisit on our next trip! Having a small group also added to our great experience. Phil also suggested great places for entertainment and food once we returned to Dublin. It was a great time!
Thoroughly enjoyed the day. Our driver/tour guide Kevin was a very knowledgable and made the day enjoyable!
Loved this trip! Blarney was great! Had an awesome driver and guide!
EXCELLENT tour!! Colum was our bus driver and tour guide. He is HILARIOUS and made the trip so much fun. He told jokes, made you laugh and got all the people in the bus involved in discussion in between stops. Colum is probably the best tour guide I have ever experienced.
Blarney Castle is such an amazing place. You must go and see it (don't forget your camera because you will take hundreds of photos here!).
The tour started early and was a a good 12l hours. So educational, but our guide Barry maxe it more than fun. The coaches were quite comfy for the ride and the sights were extraordinary.
The Blarney Castle and Cork trip was such a fun day!
Each tour we took was well planned and organized. Happy we were able to stop along the way and see the different parts or Ireland that we would not be able to see if we just stayed in Dublin.
Kevin, our tour guide, did an excellent job! We would encourage anyone to see you guys!
Despite the windy, rainy weather this trip was fun and definitely worth it. Cork is a fun city, I would love to go back! We are really glad we took these two day trips (this and the cliffs of moher) Ireland would not have been the same. I believe we got a great experience of Ireland!
