What You Can Expect

Blarney Castle and Cork Day Trip from Dublin

Visit the legendary Rock of Cashel

Greet your guide at a central Dublin location and climb aboard a luxury, air-conditioned coach destined for County Kildare. Gaze at the rolling green hills of the Irish countryside, and listen to commentary from your guide as you go.

After passing through picturesque areas like County Tipperary and County Kildare, arrive at the ancient fortress of Blarney Castle, famed for one of Ireland’s best-loved treasures, the Blarney stone. Ascend to the castle’s tower to kiss the Blarney stone and receive, according to legend, the skill of speaking in a charming and eloquent manner.

Travel onward to Cork City and enjoy some free time to explore the quaint city center. Refuel with lunch at the English market (own expense) and visit the triple-spired St Finn Bar’s Cathedral to admire the colossal, sacred structure.

Return to your luxury vehicle after exploring and relax during the journey to the Rock of Cashel in County Tipperary. Hear the legends that surround the imposing twin towers of the cathedral and take a guided tour of the structure’s Hall of Vicars and Cormac’s Chapel, home to the oldest Romanesque wall painting in Ireland.

Return to the coach for the journey back to Dublin, where the tour concludes.

My friend and I took this tour when we were visiting Ireland and we had such a great time! We had the funniest tour guide named Joseph. He sang, he told jokes and even taught us some animal noises. He made all the down time extremely entertaining and he was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Ireland. He had great stories and had great first hand knowledge of his country. We loved all the stops we made. The Rock of Cashel was beautiful, we loved running around the City of Cork and ringing the bell at the church, and we had a lot of fun seeing all there is to see at the beautiful Blarney Castle. We had a lot of time at the Castle, although spent a lot of time in line to kiss the stone, we were able to run around and hit almost all the areas on the beautiful grounds. I would highly recommend this tour and thanks so much for an awesome day!

We loved the trip. It was long, but worth the ride. The driver was funny, but he gave us good information. We only wish we could have stayed longer. We had a lot to see in such a short time. We loved the gardens around Blarney Castle. They were beautiful even in the cold rain. I would do it again with another person if they wanted to go.

I truly enjoyed the opportunity to kiss the Blarney Stone but was a little disappointed in the actual castle......I expected it to be bigger but climbing the stone, slick, narrow steps with not much to hold on to but your imagination and enduring the cold rainy day in January to kiss the Blarney Stone made it all worthwhile! Might not climb the steps again Im 72 but would surely recommend it to everyone else!

We loved this trip! Sarah, our driver/guide was so helpful and friendly. My husband and I traveled with my mother and my grandmother, who needed a little extra time and patience, which Sarah doled out like a champ. Sarah even arranged for a wheel chair at Blarney Castle so my grandmother would not tire herself out ahead of taking the steps to the top. She really enjoyed resting while seeing the grounds and taking photos. We took some time in Cork to find the church and ring the bells, definitely try for that if you can.

Charming and enchanting towns and we had great tour guide. There was a nice nice balance between being informative and giving us time to just look out the window. Didn't kiss the stone, too many lips passed there before mine! Baby lamb photo opp was priceless!
