Castles are beautiful, Blarney Castle being the highlight, all well worth getting up before six :) Guide - Tony - was fun, providing info on the castles, the country we were traveling through, Irish legends and also being a good singer, Irish songs too! To see these castles is as a part of experiencing Ireland as seeing the Cliffs of Moher :)

It was a splendid time. We went in April so the weather was not too cold or too hot. The driver was friendly and had a low key sense of humour. One of the things I liked most about it was that it wasn’t overcrowded and gimmicky. It seemed a bit more pleasant since there wasn’t a large crowd of people and we weren’t hurdled around like cattle like all the other tourist groups. I liked that he made the trip enjoyable for the people. It was a very genuine experience and not overly commercialised. I would recommend bringing a tip for the driver. I felt bad because I don’t carry cash with me. Make sure to pull out some Euros before go.

This was a very enjoyable experience! Leo was a great tour guide and provided us with a wealth of information along the journey. The castles were amazing to see and Blarney is SO MUCH more than you think it is! We honestly could have spent a whole day there! Very relaxing to just sit back and enjoy a trip!
