It was a BLAST! Now I am granted the gift of eloquence.

Marie, the guide, was way pessimistic and really a drag. But the tour was wonderful. Extremely good. We loved little Cohb (Cove) and the "Queenstown Story" tour there.

This trip is well worth it! The guide we had was a little long-winded, but he was very knowledgable about everything we saw. If you are only in Dublin for a few days, this is a good day to spend one of them. You really get to see some awesome Irish countryside and how can you not want to kiss the Blarney Stone?

This tour was a convenient, low hassle way to get an introduction to Cork and Blarney. Now that I know what they're like I’ll probably go back independently for a longer stay on another trip.

right from the moment we set off by train from Dublin to Cork the tour guide Norman was excellent. he told us everything we needed to know and how the day was going to run. his knowledge was never ending and truly fascinating. Blarney castle was spectacular and climbing to the top to kiss the Blarney stone was the highlight of the trip. we had plenty of time for shopping before having a coach tour of Cork and then onto Cobh. when we got back to Dublin there was a problem with a few of us getting back to our hotels and Norman made sure we got luas tickets and gave us a map and made sure we were ok before he finally left us after 15hours. i would definately book another tour especially if Norman was the guide

A wonderful day. At first thought 3 hours at Blarney Castle would be too long but was surprised that is could have been longer. It is well worth paying a small fee to see over Blarney House as well as the castle. The Queenstown Story was a moving experience.
Very effiencent staff at railway station and seemless transfer to coach and back to Dublin in the evening. Guide extremely well informed and helpful.

I enjoyed this tour very much .
Our tour guide, "sorry forgot your name" was fantastic and knew his information of all areas that we were taken to.
The train trip on the way to meeting the coach was a good relaxing way of getting into the mood.
The train trip home was a bit too long and if this could be shortened it would make this tour fantastic. At the end of the day which was packed with information and history was just a bit tiring, but over all, would do it again

The trip was great. A lot of time on the train but the countryside in Ireland is so beautiful! Also the grounds at the Blarney Castle were breathtaking!
