This tour fills the day very nicely. The coach trip takes in some wonderful scenery before stopping at each of the 3 castles. The host was funny and informative. The Blarney Castle and its magnificent gardens is something to spend many hours alone. The walking combined with the history and breathtaking views make this a very good tour to attend.

Such an amazing day! I went with my mom and we had a blast. Our guide was great and no place we went to was crowded. NOW is the time to come to Ireland! Absolutely no wait to kiss the Blarney Stone and we wandered around the castle basically alone on a Sunday. The other stops were lovely too and it was quite well paced. I didn’t feel rushed or like it was too long. Everything was just right! Would soooo do it again if I came with other family!

What a LOVELY day!! We had an ample amount of time at each stop, perfect amount really. It was a small group so that made things really easy and quick as well. We stopped to grab some breakfast in the morning (like a 20 min stop at a gas station, but they had hot food ready you could receive in less than a minute! I had time to use the restroom and eat beans with a tomato and hash browns). The castles were all so lovely, especially Blarney. We kissed the stone and there was no wait at all on a Sunday. Highly recommend this tour!
