Our guide was knowledgeable. Enjoyed the castle and lunch in the city of Cork.
The tour of Cashel, Cork and Blarney was wonderful. The tour was provided by Extreme Ireland and our driver/guide was Dave, who was extremely knowledgeable and provided a history of Ireland throughout the day. At Cashel, the chapel is currently being renovated but the site provides great photo opportunities and the town provides nice shops. Blarney castle and grounds were breath-takening. Be forewarned that if you go into the castle to kiss the Blarney Stone, the stairs are numerous, narrow and slick if it rained. The tour was on a Sunday so when we went into Cork, most shops had not opened if they had Sunday hours at all.
Great tour. Wonderful bus driver and very informative about tour and Irish history. Thoroughly enjoyed day - wish it could have lasted longer!
The tour guide Dave was amazing!! He gave a full range of history on our tour and was all round a great tour guide and bus driver! The city of cork and Blarney castle were both amazing to see and I would recommend anyone going on a tour to take this one!
Wonderful tour. Wayne, our tour guide, was fabulous and very knowledgeable, not to mention a lot of fun. I would highly recommend this day trip to anyone visiting Dublin. Cork and Blarney Castle are beautiful. Don't miss this trip!
The tour group was small so the tour guide was able to give us a lot of backgroup information, trivia and cultural information. The guide was very considerate and very knowledgable. VIsiting the Blarney Castle was amazing!
Dave, the tour guide and driver was so informative, and funny as well. His commentary and history lessons were great. After the tour ended, I felt that I had a fairly good understanding / overview of Irish history and its peoples.
Our trip to was wonderful and our tour guide was informative and fun! Would definitely recommend to others.
Despite a very rainy and early start in Dublin, this tour was a beautiful way to spend the day. Definitely an all-day adventure; I was exhausted when we returned to the city but in a good way. Our tour guide, Ger, was very knowledgable and entertaining, but I was pleased to learn that it wasn't the sort of tour where we were all expected to stay together - at Blarney and in Cork we had a few hours to explore on our own, which was exactly the sort of experience I had wanted. Even the ride in the coach was pleasant: beautiful scenery and a few pit stops to stretch our legs and get coffee.
I had been desperate to get back to Blarney again, since it was my favorite part of Ireland as a child, and this tour was the perfect way to get there. I recommend it to anyone who wants to get out of Dublin but is traveling without a car, since it's easy and relaxing and you get to see some beautiful places.
What a great day, our tour guide Mike was outstanding. The company made the trip easy we enjoyed the entire day.
We had a great day on this trip, I felt it was a lot of work for the driver but he was great, gave us lots of information, was very friendly, even sang to us. Made our trip all the better, we had a very good day.
We really enjoyed our trip to the Emerald Isle. Our tour guide, Eddie was great and all of the sites we visited were breath taking. We are planning a trip to Italy in the fall and I will consider using Viator for the tours there. Thanks for your part in sharing our Ireland experience.
