We were undecided about whether to do a day trip on our own or sign up for this tour. I'm so happy we signed up for the day tour! The bus itself was very comfortable and equipped with usb ports for charging phones. Our guide, Richard, was so witty, fun, and most of all informative, and we didn't come back feeling like we'd spent a day traveling with strangers when we returned to Dublin. Having not been to Ireland before, we were a little nervous about making sure we were at the right pickup spot, especially seeing where there was nowhere for a bus to park there. But Richard made sure we got to the bus (as well as everyone else) and off we went! We had plenty of time at Rock of Cashel, Blarney Castle (we had to alter our trip due to a festival in Cork that would not work well with our group), shopping, and potty breaks. We have zero regrets, and will definitely sign up for another tour when we go back to Ireland!!

You get approx 30 min at Cashel, 90 min in Cork, and 2 hours at Blarney Castle. It was the perfect amount of time in my opinion. 2 hours is more than enough to visit the park and the castle and kiss the stone if you want. We visited in November, so there was no waiting time for the stone. The guide was awesome! Told us some nice bits about Irish history.

Alex was excellent. He had tons of knowledge of the area, its history and points of interest. Everything was well organized and ran smoothly. Blarney was a highlight of our vacation, I definitely recommend this tour.

Fun tour stopping at rock of cashel, Blarney castle and a pub. Bus driver was entertaining. He helped make the dismally, rainy day fun!

Great tour! Our guide was what made it so special--thank you, Paul! We had ample time at each stop and learned a lot.
