Blarney castle tour was excellent. Tour guide Alex (or maybe Alec) was top notch. Takes pride in his job and it shows. We learned a lot about Irish culture and history. Tour is incredible value for the price.

We have plenty of time at every stop to see everything except the last stop. I would have liked about 20 more minutes there. Overall the driver was entertaining. The buses are nice with reclining seats and having WiFi was really ice.

Our guide was Joey and he was incredible! When I think of this tour I think of his funny jokes and the way he was always humming or talking and keeping us all awake. This is one of the most memorable tours we took during our 3 week European adventure.

We stopped at the Rock of Cashel first, which was amazing. The ruins are incredible and some of the graves were fairly recent. The view is amazing too, overlooking dairy cattle and rolling hills. There was a steep incline hike to get up to the Rock of Cashel, it may be difficult for some people.

After we were done here we went off to Cork for lunch and to stretch our legs. It was a nice stop. The bus left Cork and went to Blarney. For an hour Joey sang Irish folk songs. And talked and sang and talked.

Blarney was the highlight of the day. We didnt kiss the Blarney stone. According to our guide no one really knows which stone was the original kissing stone that gives the gift of gab. Some people go around and kiss all the stones on the premises. We figured it wasnt worth it and walked around the grounds instead. There were really cool waterfalls and old-time dog kennels. The grounds are spectacular! Also at Blarney there was an enormous all things Irish gift shop, that is a must!

Hopefully you love this tour as much as we did.

This was a early start day trip leaving at 650am but well worth it! We saw 3 castles Blarney bring the highlight. The grounds were beautiful especially with the fall colors. It helped I was blessed with sunny weather at Blarney Castle. The driver/guide was wonderful. This one is not to be missed.

Fantastic trip, our guide Alec was funny, knowledgeable and all around fantastic guide. Blarney was of course the gem but Cashel and Cahir were well preserved and stunning. I'm sorry it took me this long to do this tour.

It was my first trip to Ireland and I really enjoyed this tour. We hit 3 different castles which for me that is what I wanted to see most on my trip. Barry our tour guide was very knowledgeable and fun.

Our guide/driver, Rob, was amazing. He was very informative and has the voice of an angel. You must use your time wisely at each stop, but Rob lets you know how you should go about getting the most out of your stops. One complaint I have was the music situation on the bus. We listened to the same handful of songs over and over and over again. Someone get Rob an auxiliary cord! HA!
