Great tour overall with a few glitches...

Had a tour with Dublin David. Nice guide, who kept the bus entertained in the right times with plenty of silent breaks as well. Very helpful, and informative overall. You have to stick to all the times provided by the guide. Rock of Cashel was enough time but Blarney is a long wait to Blarney stone so you kill all the time waiting for that and not seeing the rest of the Blarney castle/park. As far as Cork city...its not really a tour. Its just a an hour and half long stop to eat lunch at a specific spot (you can choose whatever place but guide organized something with Gallagher's pub) but there was a lack of vegetarian choices so we went to another place instead. Otherwise, nothing remarkable to see in Cork. If I were to do this over again, I probably drive a rental car or take a train straight to Blarney and spend half-day at the park, and visit another nearby castle can return. But for what this tour is about, tour organization and the guide were great!

Blarney and Cahir Castles: Full-Day Tour from Dublin

An excellent experience! Both adults and children really enjoyed it and Connor, our driver & guide besides being a great character was also very helpful and informative throughout the trip. I would recommend this trip to anyone, regardless of the time of the year or weather conditions. Especially Blarney Castle could well be a single, day long destination, especially for those with children. So much to see and do there... We would definitely like to do it again.

Fun day seeing Blarney Castle and kissing the legendary Blarney Stone.

Enjoyed seeing the Rock of Cashel and Blarney Castle. Cork is a beautiful colorful city. Using the bus tours to get around is definately the way to go. This takes the stress out of driving and navigating in unfamiliar countries.

Tour guide was fantastic. The group awesome overall trip great!

Fantastic trip. Was a small group so got to know the fun loving, singing guide! Only problem was the Blaney Stone was at the top of the castle and I don't do heights to well. Yet the people there were helpful and encouraging!

A very relaxing day and the guide, Patricia,was extremely informative

We loved our tour, everyone was very accomodating and welcoming. We did so much in just one day that we wouldn't have otherwise been able to do within our short time in Ireland!
