Loved this tour, smaller more intimate bus. Always a better option.

This was a great tour! Our guide, Conrad, was wonderful and knew so much about Irelan and it's history. He was very friendly and we created a great bond throughout the trip.
We wish that there would have been less time at the Rock of Cashel and more time at Blarney Castle. There was so much to see at the second stop, we didn't have enough time and even ended up being late getting back to the bus :/ and we still didn't get to see everything we had hoped to!
Over all, a fantastic tour and a great use of our money. Conrad stopped at a few small villages during our trip for bathroom/coffee breaks. He even knew a great deal of information about these small villages as well! He also gave great recommendations on where to eat.
Definitely would recommend this tour and this tour company!

Superb day tour trip. Our guide was Ross. He was very knowledgable of little details on the way out of Dublin and at the various sites. The grounds of Blarney Castle are huge, give yourself some time to take it all in.

We loved the trip to Blarney. Our guide was outstandingand a lot of fun.
The only negative was that we had to wait in line at Blarney castle for over two hours. It was understandable though because of the huge number of Americans that were in Ireland for the Notre Dame-Navy football game.
We loved Ireland and will definitely be returning. The Irish people were very kind to us in all areas of the country!

Excellent tour. We were given plenty of time to explore the Blarney castle and other sites. I did not feel like we were in the bus driving for very long which can be the case for many other tours. Our guide was knowledgeable, funny, and entertaining as well.

This day trip was excellent, definitely a highlight of our entire trip. Our guide (Mike Murphy) was fabulous. Very informative, professional and most importantly FUN! I would certainly recommend it to anyone visiting Dublin. But, my difficulty came in trying to confirm my booking with Viator. Nobody answered my numerous calls and I was unable to leave a message. Thankfully our hotel was close to a travel office that could help sort things out. I would have been very disappointed had I shown up the following morning at 0640 and not be on the list for that day! I was very pleased they were able to help.

This was a great tour to take. Our guide was great and a must if you are visiting Ireland. To kiss the Blarney Stone you have to climb a lot of stairs in the castle,and lie down backwards. Cork was a quaint place to visit with an interesting market and shops.
