We had a great day ,the driver was great and gave us a good history lesson
It was a great day. A lot of info, great guide, great group of people!!!
Very good venue with beautiful gardens. Had to queue for 90 minutes of the 120 minute stopover so not much time to enjoy the rest of the place.
Fantastic trip. Our driver / guide, "Mike" was AMAZING! So informative and funny and talented - stories to singing to jokes - he made the time on the road in between stops thoroughly enjoyable.
What an amazing 12 hour day that was well designed and thought out! Michael was the best tour guide we've ever had. He had a wealth of knowledge about the history of Ireland, told funny jokes and even sang us some traditional irish tunes. Perfect day!
Fantastic! One of my favourite days! Our tour guide excelled in his love of his history and telling us so much as we visited such amazing places. He gave 200%!
A really enjoyable experience with a kissing of the Blarney Stone and a two-hour free
time in downtown Cork. Plus our bus driver kept us continuously amused with his many stories and his singing of Irish songs.
Rock of Cashel and Blarney castle are an absolute must when in Ireland. Very nicely organized. Of course the Blarney gardens are huge and you need at least half a day to explore them but don't forget to stop by the Blarney Woolen Mills. Despite the long drives the bus makes enough stops to stretch your legs, have a coffee or stop by the restrooms.
Was a wonderful trip...enjoyed the small towns....our tour guide, Wayne, was without a doubt the best tour guide I have ever had...he knew so much history and little details, and he was verrrry funny...made the tour a real delight...hope to get him on our next trip to Ireland...
Excellent tour! Our tour guide was a lovely man that showed us some really cool places! Loved it!
Great experience I would highly recommend. Tour guide was very good at telling the history of the area we were in, in brief and humorous stories, and was very entertaining over all. He also knew when to keep quiet and let us enjoy the scenery around us. Would do it again tomorrow.
One of the things that made this tour was our driver Wayne. He made the travel time between stops very enjoyable. He knew how to mix his entertaining talk with some time to just enjoy the scenery. Each stop was very good. We knew how much time we had at each stop and when to be back.
My only thought was I would have liked a little more time at Blarney Castle due to the time we had to wait in line to "Kiss the Blarney Stone" The wait was not in anyway the fault of the tour company, but due to the volume of people who want to see the attraction.
I would highly recommend this tour.
This was a hassle-free way out of Dublin that allows you to see some of the beautiful Irish countryside as well as the tour stops. The Blarney Castle grounds are beautiful. Our guide, Liam, was fantastic! Overall, a great trip!
Very enjoyable. The castles involved in this tour were amazing. The scenery was spectacular. The tour guide was excellent, sang, and told wonderful stories. As the Irish say, "It was lovely."
tour was great to see the blarney castle and stone- Eddi tour guide was great.
Lovely tour (: bus, driver and locations :). Recommend adjusting itinerary to allow more time at Blarney castle i.e. say like 2-3 hours there. Highly recommended.
Great tour, well worth the cost and time. My grandsons and I had only three days in Dublin and this was a great choice for us.
Very enjoyable trip cork is a lovely city and Blarney castle and grounds are lovely did kiss the blarney stone and got the photo looking really stupid lay on my back reaching to kiss ir
Me and my boyfriend very much enjoyed our tour to the countryside and landmarks. Although it rained and made the excursion less comfortable/convenient, we loved Joey (tour guide)! His singing of traditional songs and sharing interesting history/local trivia made this experience very memorable. Salante
Our driver (I think Bud is the correct name) was great in making the trip very enjoyable, with recorded music, some songs by himself, and an overall good temper, stories and jokes. I took the tour just because I wanted to visit Rock of Cashel. I got that and enjoyed Blarney as well, plus I could see how much the Irish fields in this region could be Tolkien's grounds for "La comarca" (The Shire). I thank previous reviewers for their comments led me to select this trip.
My girlfriend and I really enjoyed the bus tour trip we had the pleaure of taking to Rock of Cahel, Cork and Blarney Castle.
our tour guide and driver Barry was very knowlegeable about Irish history and was one reason why the trip was a pleaure and a success.
We plan on coming back to Ireland as there is still so much more that we want to see of this beautiful country.
We would likd to thank our driver and tour guide Barry for a wonderful tripand a job well done.
