Full description
Discover Ireland’s most famous castle on a full-day tour from Dublin, and kiss the legendary Blarney Stone of Blarney Castle. Depart Dublin through the green fields and dairy farms of the Golden Vale of County Cork, and enjoy panoramic views of the Galtee Mountains and County Tipperary along the way. Head in to Cork City on the banks of the River Lee, pausing for approximately 1-hour to wander at leisure. Use your free time to visit the historic English Market, or marvel at St. Finbarre’s Cathedral. Drive on to Blarney Castle, home of the legendary Blarney Stone. It’s said that if you kiss the stone you will receive the “gift of the gab” for 7 years! Explore the castle grounds and gardens to discover the Witch's Cave, and enjoy tax free shopping at Blarney Woollen Mills and craft shop. Go to one of Ireland's most evocative sites, stroll in the footsteps of St Patrick, Celtic crosses and round towers.

I loved Blarney Castle, and Cork English market and Rock of Cashel were also nice. We got very lucky with the weather. Richard was amazing - he was nice and funny and helpful and tried to make sure we got rained on as little as possible. I feel like we did a lot in one day and wouldn't have minded a bit more time at Blarney Castle but this tour was definitely better than expected, well organised and highly recommended!

Our tour guide was great!!! We got lucky and it was a small tour, we had great weather. The driver was funny, informative, and kind. I got a little motion sickness in the beginning and he was nice enough to let me move up to the front and sit in the extra tour guide seat until the feeling passed, and offered to stop multiple times if I needed it (I didn't). He made us reservations at a great place for lunch in Cork, and told us about a bunch of good photo spots. Bus was clean and comfortable.

The tour company try to cram too much into one day and only got to spend 2 hours at Blarney Castle which meant getting off the coach, get to the Stone and kiss it then get back on the coach. It would be better if we just went for the whole day instead of just 2 hours.
