Great fun! The check in location and process were very easy. This was a day trip from Dublin by rail/coach. Brendan was our tour guide and made this trip worth while. He shared Irish history and culture while showing us beautiful, scenic Ireland countrysides. Kissing the Blarney Stone was an experience and learning about the history of the Irish emigration was enlightening...made us want to read more about it! Met folks from different countries and made new friends, too! Excellent trip!
We had a wonderful time on our trip to Cork and Blarney Castle. Our guide Jonathan was very informative when explaining the history and the tails of Ireland, and did so with humor and passion.The timing of the trip was great. Got to Blarney and was able to kiss the Blarney stone before the big line of people started to arrive.
I am looking forward to the eloquence that kissing the Blarney Stone promises. The climb up and down the stairs was rewardingly challenging and certainly not for the faint of heart. The mysteries of the castle created a rather thrilling ambience. This is a must-do just for the experience alone. Travel by train was a wise decision - smooth and good views of the beautiful Irish countryside.
Train ride was relaxing travelling through the Irish country. Tour guide for the ride around Cork was personable and informative. The highlight of seeing the Blarney castle was worth the trip. A lot to see in and around the castle. Kissing the Blarney stone was a must do tourist attraction to say been there done that. Lots of history and the grounds were beautiful. Time was just right for the excursion - not rushed but we experienced a lot!
This trip was pretty cool. We had just enough time to explore and were given fair direction. Our guide was sweet as pie and very helpful. Took the majority of my pictures on this trip and enjoyed every bit of it. Try the fern garden, poison garden and the deli at the queenstown story!
The tour was great. Very organized and efficient. Tour guide was knowledgable about the subject and had a nice demeanor. Highly recommended!
This was our favorite tour we took, it was so beautiful on the day we went. My husband and I were so taken with how beautiful the countryside and the castle were. It was much nicer on this there because you take a train to blarney versus taking a bus and believe me the train is much better than taking the bus like we did on a different tour. We seen a lot more than what we had hoped and the church in Cork was one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. It was a trip of a lifetime!!
Amazing trip. Great tour guide. Once in a lifetime cool. Highly recommend!
Fabulous trip. It was everything that was promised to us. The train ride was a perfect opportunity to see the Irish countryside and relax with our friends. The tour was paced appropriately. Just enough time to sightsee, shop and eat a relaxing lunch. I would definitely recommend this trip.
Very organised but I felt we could have had more info given to us about Blarney by guide. On the Cobh leg, you could cut the time spent at the heritage centre by at least 30 minutes. It felt like the afternoon dragged a bit.
Dave Gallagher was a fantastic host! Very knowledgeable and proud of his country. Enjoyed every aspect of the tour. Definitely got my money's with by kissing the Blarney Stone twice!!!
