Maximize your time in the beautiful city of Cork on an enriching full-day shore excursion to Blarney Castle and other historical highlights. Greet your courteous guide at Cork Harbour and travel through splendid Irish countryside to the ancient structure of Blarney Castle. Gain free admission to the 13th-century landmark and kiss the world-renowned Blarney Stone for good luck. Return to Cork for a panoramic coach tour of the city’s sights; visit the charming town of Kinsale; and make a brief stop in Cobh, famed for being the departure point of the ill-fated Titanic, before returning to Cork Harbour.
Good tour and worth the money.
Mike C. and driver Tommy made this our favourite day on our 12 day cruise.

Paddywagon was waiting for us as we exited the ship. We got out of the port area early and headed straight to Blarney Castle. We were able to get through the castle very quickly compared to others who came later. The grounds are lovely and more to my liking than the castle itself. Beautiful sunny day and our guide was interesting and helpful. Our trip included a very brief visit to Cork - so brief that I barely remember it - and a longer stop at Kinsale, a quite and interesting town to relax in.
Paddy wagon was excellent and their guide Val exceptional
Fabulous trip. Great tour guide. Got us up to the castle before all the other tour buses. Had enough time to go up to the top of the castle and walk around the grounds. A fraction of the price of the cruise ship excursion!

One of my favorite days spent in Ireland. Val was an amazing tour quide and helped make our day fun. Super easy for us to get into Blarney Castle, and spending time in Cork and Kinsale was a wonderful full day.
Gavin was amazing!!! So funny, full of stories, great information AND he drove that bus like it was a small car!! First stop was Blarney Castle with instructions from Gavin to go directly to Kiss the Blarney Stone if we wanted to avoid long waits. We did and were so glad we didn't stop to wander around first. After the stone, we did get ample time to wander the grounds of Blarney Castle and they were amazing!! Lunch break in Kinsale which was lovely I highly recommend the Fish Chowder at Kitty O'Sea's. A short visit in Cork City and then back to ship with a little time to wander around in Cobh before the ship left. A very scenic port.
This was one of the best tours taken on the whole British Isles Tour. It was done by a guy named Val with Paddywagon, and he made it the best day ever. Book with them if you can on any tours. They were far superior to the other ones in Ireland. He was entertaining and knowledgeable.
This was a great tour led by Les. It was at least half the price of a tour that Princess offered. Whether by luck or good planning, we arrived at the Blarney Castle early and we were albe to climb the stairs to the Blarney stone with no wait. The rest of the tour was also good. Would highly recommend this tour.
