I only wish the weather had been better on our trip but we still had a great time. The drive from Dublin was very long but a lot of us slept on the bus. None of the sites was crowded the day we went. We had plenty of time at each stop, but the Blarney castle grounds were so beautiful I wish we had a little more time there to explore, and maybe less time at Cork. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. A definite "must do" trip.

Had a fun time. The driver/guide was patient with stragglers getting back to the bus (despite people pushing the envelope).

This trip promptly started nice and early in the morning. The trip down to to Blarney is very long which gives you the chance to have a nap if you need. The time spent at the Blarney Castle is ample time to admire it. Then off to Cork and again plenty of time is given to explore this town and stop for lunch. Last is the rock of cashel which is an amazing site. This tour was fantastic and well worth every penny.

Bud was probably one of the best tour guides I have had. I would highly recommend this tour to those visiting Dublin.

Great way to see Ireland. The castle is awesome and how can you go and not kiss the Blarney Stone? Tony C.

Mike was our guide and he was great!!! So charming and funny, he really made us feel at home on the trip. As for Blarney, some people say that it isn't worth it and is too "touristy" but I say, it's no more tourist driven than any other landmark in Europe. And the grounds are magnificent. There are beautiful gardens and a creek so if you can, grab lunch before you go inside and eat at the picnic tables on the lawn. Cork was charming, and the Rock of Cashel is breathtaking. Very worth it!

Our guide was great! He gave us the history of places we visited and even places we drove by. He even sang a couple of Irish tunes to us! The only thing I would change is about 1/2 hour less at Rock Of Cashel and 1/2 more at Blarney Castle. Great trip!
