great tour and our driver and tour guide Owen was good and very helpful. Overall the tour was enjoyable and informative except for the rain.
Joseph made the trip an amazing experience! He started off singing traditional Irish songs and taught us a lot of Irish history and even how to say some words in Irish. He was funny, full of humanity and told us all the spots to hit at each stop. I hope he works my baby owl joke into his next tour!
This was an excellent tour with an extremely knowledgeable tour guide named Mac who is a school teacher during the school year. Mac was extremely helpfully in making suggestions at to where to go and what to see not only during the tour but in Dublin when we returned. We would highly recommend taking this tour especially if Mac is the tour guide.
The best thing about this tour for me, aside from the achingly beautiful Irish countryside, was our guide. I'm ashamed to say I've forgotten his name, but he made the day as entertaining as possible. I will, however, say that Blarney Castle was a bit of a bust for my friend and I. Neither of us were able to reach to kiss the Blarney Stone she's too short and my back didn't want to bend that way and the wait to kiss the stone was so long we didn't have time to tour the rest of the grounds. That said, I would certainly encourage others to take this tour and enjoy the sights and history offered by it.
Our bus driver was very entertaining and most helpful. This was an all day tour, but most enjoyable by us and everyone on the bus. The gardens are beautiful and the view from the top of the castle is awesome.
John was great and full of knowledge and stories of Ireland. We had a great day with many stops. My favorite was the Rock of Cashel and Cork. Amazing history on your beautiful island. Thank you and I will recommend your group to friends visiting.
Kevin was a great driver, very informative. Changed the planned route of our trip to try to avoid the really long lines at Blarney from a cruise ship. Still had long lines but not much you can really do to avoid. Highly recommend!
We booked this tour with the intent of doing one Touristy thing. It ended up being an utterly enjoyable day, thanks in part to our driver/tour director Kevin. We caught the coach early in the morning and settled in for the long drive. The first stop was a nice little area in Cashel where we had some time to stretch our legs and walk around the old ruins at the Rock of Cashel. The sun came out so the surrounding area was clear of sight and very nice. We then drove to County Cork and were able to grab lunch and walk about the town. Kevin all the while gave us history and tidbits about the areas we visited and kept it very entertaining. Our final destination the Blarney Castle. While it was very crowded we got into queue and initially we were told it would be 90 minutes before we reached the top, cutting it very close to our departure time, we actually were only in line for about 40 minutes. On the way back to Dublin, Kevin kept us entertained and brought us back safe and sound. Definitely a tour you should go on.
Great day tour, excellent driver / guide. Very informative and funny.
Joseph was great. Informative, funny, friendly and entertaining. Thanks for a great trip
Terrific trip. Owen was quite clever and witty. Would recommend to others. Thanks.

While the bus ride was long, and my granddaughter fell asleep, the tour was wonderful. Our driver was exceptional, entertaining us on the road with jokes and song. Our other stops helped us get the flavor of the homeland, meeting many friendly faces. I would recommend this to those folks who wish to experience the true flavor of Ireland.
Our tour guide, Joseph, was amazing. He started singing Irish tunes before 8am and didn't stop until we got back to Dublin. The trip was great, seeing Cashel Rock, Cork City, and of course kissing the Blarney Stone. But the best part was the experience from a local who shared his stories and his songs. Highly Recommend!
The day trip to the Blarney Castle and Cork City was fantastic. Our guide, Joey, was the best!! He was extremely informative and interesting. Dress warmly as it is quite windy and chilly. Be sure to book the tour with Joey... he makes this 5 star tour even better!!
A great tour guide and bus driver. Enjoyed every minute of it. Weather was great. and the people of Ireland were the most friendly of our whole European cruise.. Love Ireland.
Tour was great! We had such a great tour guide/driver. Easy going, funny and really knowledgeable. Definitely recommend this tour!
