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!
Cork was the best. We loved the beauty of Blarney Castle and the grounds. The staff were all very nice and accommodating.
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.
This trip is a great day out. Our driver Shaun was great, very funny guy and kept everyone entertained.
Great tour! amazing scenery, enough time at each destinations, great lunch at Cork, all together a great time!
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!!!
Great trip, great driver/tour guide. This is well worth the money - recommend for all!
Our tour to Blarney Castle was wonderful! Our bus driver kept us entertained and sang beautiful Irish songs! We only had one full day in Ireland and I definitely recommend this tour if you do nothing else.
Enjoyed this trip. The only thing I would add is an extra 1/2 hour or more at Blarney castle and an extra 1/2 hour or more in Cork. Highlights were the Rock of Cashel and our quick stop at the 250 year old Morrisey Pub. The bus driver Patrick was fun and knowledgeable- Thank you!
❤️❤️❤️ Tour guide Liam was top notch - shared personal and historical stories (very funny and kind gentleman). Rock of Cashel - gorgeous scenic, 2 hours at Blarney would seem like a lot but need time to eat, kiss the stone, and enjoy the beautiful grounds. Cork was a shopping stop - look for boutiques
We lucked out with sun and clear skies. Our guide, Joseph was very knowledgeable and had us in stitches with songs and stories. Thanks for making it memorable! One of the best tours :
Loved, loved, loved this tour. Our tour guide Jennifer was informative, calm, and a joy to talk to.
This tour took us to the Rock of Cashel and the Blarney castle which were so beautiful. A must see if you're in Ireland
Wonderful! Wonderful! Wonderful! I can't say enough how much we enjoyed this tour. The sites and the areas were simply outstanding.
