Blarney Castle and Cork Day Trip from Dublin

Blarney Castle and Cork Day Trip from Dublin

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.

This trip has variety we got to see two castles and the lovely shipping town of Cork. Our bus driver and tour guide, Jonathan, was fantastic and very knowledgeable not only about Irish history but about nearly every part of the landscape we drove through. Made time on the bus very entertaining. We had great weather, cold but clear and even though each place we visited had people, we did not need to wait very long anywhere. November is a great time of the year to come and see the sites. Really well-organized tour.

Great day trip from Dublin, as we only had three days in the city before leaving for London, it was a perfect way to see some more of Ireland especially the beautiful country side. Enough time was allowed in each destination and our tour guide, Joey Mulligan, was delightful, very informative and very entertaining.

Plenty of time at each of the sites and great suggestions from the tour guides.

Joseph......the coach driver and the guide.... is the man LBA card and a tip for him. Yes he is legit nuts in a good way... he talks and sings and talks and sings and he sure can tell a tale and hold a tune. At 645 am I didn't know to laugh or cry when I met this leprechaun on a permanent caffeine drip but he had me laughing throughout the day and evening and was probably by far the best guide I had on all 7 tours I did while in Ireland. He just needs to go a wee bit slow the first 15-20 minutes or so until our coffee kicks in. Over all this was a great tour THE first stop is The Rock of Cashel, Joseph takes you there first because no one else is there which was awesome......great photos. Then on to Cork for Lunch...plenty of stores to shop and we took the guides recommendation and went to the English market where we had Sausage, potatoes and onions in a box one of the best things I ate on my whole trip just follow the smell once you enter the market you will find them. Then on to kiss the Blarney stone at Blarney Castle and you get a few hours there to take photos and walk the grounds plenty of places to get great shots including the waterfalls and the cave by the castle. We then went into the small town and sipped a pint of Guinness by the fire before heading back to the coach. This is a must do trip, this was my second favorite trip in Dublin next to the Cliff of Moher.

This tour was Great. Adelle our guide was really nice and funny. The only thing id have asked for was maybe 10 more minutes or so shopping time at Blarney Castle and Cork City! She and the driver were also kind enough to invite and suggest a great eatery in Cork that was well priced w a huge portion of food. It was second time to Blarney and i had my cousin and a friend with me , we all thoroughly enjoyed the trip fo rsure!

Excellent trip - only 10 of us on the mini bus, so it was a great group!
Would have preferred more time in Cork less at Blarney, however this seems to be in the minority.
Overall loved it!
