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.

If you go to Ireland, you got to kiss that Blarney Stone. This was an all-day tour south, through the beautiful Irish countryside. I know now that Ireland is truly the Emerald Isle, green throughout, and a tempting place to live. Climbing up a winding and very narrow stone staircase to reach the Blarney Stone itself was a great experience and kids will love it. Lying down and tilting back to kiss that Stone was an experience all to itself. I highly recommend as I do the Cliffs of Moher tour.

We had a great time and enjoyed the humor and singing of our guide Joseph. Loved Blarney Castle and the beautiful grounds although we did not have time to wait in line for 90 minutes to kiss the blarney stone. Guess we will have to come back!

Excellent tour guide who also drove the coach bus. Saw lots of sights along the way and made very nice scenic stops. Blarney Castle was excellent. One suggestion is to have more time allotted there. You only are given 1 hr and 30 minutes - it takes 10-15 minutes to walk from bus to the castle then at least 45 minutes to walk up the old spiral cement castle stairs to the roof where the stone is located. Then you have to walk down again. There are several exhibits on the grounds that you are unable to see since you are rushing back towards the bus. In addition, you have to a lot for time for the gift shop of course! and to use the facilities since there are none on the buses.

This was a wonderful tour -- and our driver was great as he continued to share many stories of the history and culture on Ireland . . . the time spent at the Rock of Cashel was an added bonus to our time at Blarney Castle and Cork . . .

This was a great tour! Our guide was very knowledgeable and quite funny! The Blarney Castle was beautiful and the grounds surrounding it. Make sure you go up the rock spiral staircase to the top of the castle to kiss the famous Blarney Stone. There was a nice gentlemen there help you lean back and kiss the stone. They also take your picture! You get to view it at the bottom and decide then if you want to buy it or not. There are several places to eat and there was a very nice gift shop. Cork was a great city to explore! Make sure you visit the food market in the middle of the centrum. There were several stand alone musicians along the way as you maneuvered through the city streets. Overall it was a wonderful tour! Highly recommend!

Our tour guide was perfect and witty. Wished we had more time at the Blarney Castle instead of Cork. But, we loved it no matter what.

The group that did this tour was outstanding. We got so much more that just the standard tour. We went to places we did expect and we got to the main areas before the big groups started showing up which allowed us an almost full access experience. Thank you so much!!!
