We had a great time! I now have the Gift of the Gab! : Blarney Castle was great. I recommend the waterfalls, caves, and poison garden while there. Cork was a nice, busy shopping center. Must take this tour when in Dublin!!
Was really glad we did this tour, as lately I have been on this Castle kick and we were able to see two awesome castles and see some amazing gardens and grounds. Our tour guide/bus driver was very informational and made the trip very enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that wants to see historic castles and enjoy a ride through the country side.
Wayne was fantastic! I was highly impressed with his humor and personality and his ability to keep the group engaged through what could otherwise prove to be a very long day. We visited the Rock of Cashel, Blarney Castle and Cork all of which were fabulous. The Rock of Cashel is stunning and it was great to be able to get off the bus for an hour and explore this landmark. I had forgotten it was on the tour so it was a nice bonus when I realized we were stopping. Bring your camera, because this imposing beauty demands to be photographed. Blarney Castle was our next stop and it is a must. We were easily able to get up and kiss the Blarney stone- although this was in January- but ample time was allowed to explore the beautiful grounds and do some shopping. The Blarney Woolen Mill store was fantastic- I found some of the best things there! Finally we visited Cork. The only thing that I would have liked would have been a move in depth tour of the city but I learned a lot about the rebel past on the bus from our driver/historian. Wayne did give us a great pub lunch recommendation in Cork which was very helpful and allowed us to maximize our time instead of searching for something. On the way back we stopped at ta heritage pub for our break, this was possible due to our group size and our group behavior and timeliness, a bonus for sure! It was very cool to see this time capsule of a time gone by and getting to meet some of the local patrons. This was a great way to end our trip to Ireland and we definitely have Wayne to thank for our fun day. I would definitely do another trip with this group in the future!
Tour was very good, unfortunately a rainy day, but again we knew it was Ireland. But worth the tour.
It was a wonderful day trip. We really enjoyed it. The guide was very informative.
This tour did a great job of cramming a lot into a single day. John was an entertaining and informative guide, and we had a great time exploring the Rock of Cashel, Cork, and Blarney. Highly recommend!
This is a great tour! Our guide Tony was excellent. He had so many great stories and it really added to the whole day!
Angela and Peter were our drivers/tour guides and both fantastic. The tour was also amazing, even though it rained and drizzled, it was very enjoyable. They delivered everything as promised, never felt rushed and we had plenty of time to explore and take in the beauty of what we saw.
This place is beautiful. I could spend hours here or even all day. Definitely make this trip.
The tour provided plenty of time to sight see, great driver, and knowledgeable guide. This tour will direct you to a pub in the middle of Cork I would suggest going elsewhere.
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 way to spend the day when visiting Ireland. Jim is a gem and kept us informed and entertained.
Trip was awesome. Tour guide was hilarious. Long day but worth it.
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.
wonderful tour, you get to see so much of the countryside. liam was a great, laid-back guide.

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!
Alec was terrific! Super informative and friendly. Everything ran on time, which I truly appreciated.
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!
I instantly fell in love with our guide. She was funny, had great stories, and made the trip so much more interesting.
This tour was fabulous, loved our guide. He was informative, funny and overall great.
We saw a lot of great things and the drive was great.
I have nothing negative to say about anything. I rate it 5 satrs
We had a great time. I got to see the Rock of Cashel as well as the Blarney Castle. Gabriel was an excellent tour guide.
