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.
Great fun trip sure a little corny kissing the stone but still fun.make sure to ask liam our tour guide to stop at his place on the way back
From Dublin to Cashel, Cork, and Blarney Castle; our guide Barry also drove and narrated- I learned the history of Ireland, St. Patrick, and the local areas we visited. He lived in Cork and shared some Irish language- phrases we can use as well as interesting details about greetings, etc. that make it quite diferent from English. We have been on 3 bus excursions during this vacation, and this one was BY FAR the best.
He never asked for a gratuity, but received alot because he did an outstanding job. He was very funny too, saying, "The lights not getting any greener" when other drivers dawdled at a stoplight.
