Shane was an excellent guide - tour was great - except Cork...not much to see there in such a short period of time.
The Blarney castle grounds were AMAZING!! I loved this tour. Definitely worth it. You get to crawl through the tiny castle, and explore the beautiful grounds. You also get some nice time in Cork for lunch to experience Irish coffee and the beer!! Our guide was so passionate and knowledgeable.
The Driver was very entertaining and knowledgeable about the castle and the surroundings. It would of been nice to mention that trips would be appreciated by the man holding our legs as we kissed the Blarney stone. I gave all my tips to the Harpist outside the castle and didn't have any left for the gentleman holding my feet. The trip was fun and the castle and grounds were fantastic. I'd do it again and will recommend the trip to my friends. Wonderful!
Tour was amazing. Great informative guide. Knew how to avoid the crowds, so didn't queue too long. lots to see and do, so a tiring day but well worth it
I was glad we spent quite a lot of time in Blarney rather than Cork.
Would have liked a little more time in Cork--really enjoyed the city--maybe an extra 1/2 hour?
I slept in on my scheduled day and the tour office was nice enough to change it for me for no charge. The driver was super friendly and pointed things out along the way and I now have the gift of gab!
We were extramily lucky, beautifull weather for the beautiful seen.
The trip was well organized and the tour guide/bus driver was very knowledgeable about the country and the sites that were visited. The distance travelled between Dublin and Cork is quite lengthy - so you might want to consider the train/bus tour option - or to even stay over in Cork and return with the bus trip the next day. That was an option that I didn't realize I could take.
Loved the tour! Our tour guide, Philip English was wonderful! He was informative, funny and even sang some Irish folk songs. His favorite expression was "chillax". A great day of touring the sights blessed with a touch of good weather! We made the most of our day on our Irish vacation.
Fantastic in spite of the weather ! Our driver and guide Gerard was so knowledgeable and a truly Irish man! A bonus in our trip was the rock of Cashel which we visited at the beginning of our trip, turn up to be a great decision because of the weather ! At Blarney we had a nice lunch at the old stables ! a must is a visit to the Woolen Mills
It was great! Tour guide was knowledgeable and entertaining, everything ran smoothly and on time. All around great day on our trip.
Fantastic. Enjoyed it all, driver terrific on his knowledge.
Blarney Castle truly magestic.
Barry was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable and friendly, excellent tour
We loved our tour guide Mac...he gave us great information on the history of Ireland. I feel we had plenty of free time to explore our stops.
This was a wonderful trip. Had a fantastic tour guide who was also our bus driver named Sarah from Extreme Ireland Day Tours. She did an amazing job of keeping us informed and organized as well as providing us with with a wonderfully interesting history narration as we went along. She was extremely knowledgeable, funny and personable, plus an excellent driver! Rock of Cashel was a must-see and Blarney Castle a fun excursion. Also had time to shop at Blarney woolen mill store ..a great addition. Thank you for a special trip. It is recommended.
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!
