I thought this was the perfect tour for us since we were just spending a long weekend in Ireland. This easily got us out to the countryside to see more than just Dublin. The only disappointment was that there was some road construction or another reason why we could not spend time in Cork but we went to a port city and spent more time there and it was great. The guide was fantastic and was familiar to one of the fellow tourists and she definitely was keen on him. They are very organized which is helpful given the timing of the day. The bus driver was also fantastic and that is always good. Our tour groups two together had an entire train car to ourselves and the two guides made us feel very comfortable and they came around and talked to each of the groups/couples/singletons which is a nice touch, I think. The price was reasonable, too.

We had a fabulous time on our trip. Andy our guide was very helpful, informative, and funny. He even sang some songs for us. The tour was extremely organized from the start to the end. It was a long day but so well worth it. We would definitely recommend this trip to anyone going to Ireland for the first time. We loved the comfort of the train with the bathrooms which is important on a long trip. We absolutely loved the beautiful scenery, and we loved the amazing history. It is now a wonderful memory for us. Thank you!!

The train ride was pleasant and we got there early enough so the line wasn't too long. Was able to kiss the Blarney stone without too much difficulty just FYI it was not as I expected. Had time to eat lunch at a restaurant. Would've like a little more time to wander through the shops, but all in all, it was a great trip. Tour guides were very knowledgeable and helpful.

The rail trip from Dublin to Cork is a comfortable and efficient way to travel the countryside. Blarney Castle is much more than kissing the stone. We enjoyed exploring the rooms off the spiral stairway, hiking the lake trail to get a real feel for the Irish shades of green, and taking photos around the grounds. The stop at the Queenstown Story in Cobh Harbour was a special treat for our family because our grandfather sailed from that port. Family history and castles and beautiful scenery all in one smooth trip!

It was wonderful to start out by train and wake up and relax while seeing the beautiful countryside along the way to the multiple destinations. My favorite by far is Blarney Castle! Magnificent!
Not only was the castle stunning but the countryside around was so memorable. I highly recommend this tour!

Great trip. Well organized and the guides were very knowledgeable and fun to go with. Only a few of us went back to Dublin on the train and Sally was great and got us home.

Now this is the real Ireland. Castle was magnificent and the opportunity to kiss the Blarney stone one in a million. Viator doesn't miss a beat in planning the tours. Recommend them highly, they are a class act. Good service, knowledgeable tour guides, and friendly staff.

This trip was awesome. BLarney Castle was great. We stopped at Cobb by the ocean and it would have been nice to spend a little more time in that town if the trip could be adjusted. We loved that area.

We were only going to be in Ireland for a few days so this was the perfect tour! We arrived in Dublin the night before our tour and enjoyed the night life at Temple Bar. Then we had an amazing day traveling by train to Cork and Blarney. The scenic train ride through the countryside was wonderful. We kissed the Blarney stone and visited the last port of call for the Titanic. Saw so many amazing sights in one day!

Nice day out of the city of Dublin. Impressed with the train trip, very smooth and fast with a few stops via bus coach. Great shopping at Blarney, nice side trip to Cork and Cobh with just enough history to round out the day. Highly recommended if you prefer the train over a tour bus.

Even in the pouring rain, was still able to appreciate and enjoy the Cork and Blarney Castle tours. The rail tours are fabulous and the Ireland's countryside is worth exploring!

Did you know Winston Churchhill kissed the blarney stone? After kissing the blarney stone I feel like my lips are now within six degrees of all lips! Was really good to see the Blarney Castle. Also the fish and chips and beer at the restaurant under the largest store in Ireland was awesome!
