Our driver, Bryan (from Paddywagon) led us on this tour. The castle itself, is pretty cool. So much history within the walls. He was able to get us to the castle and queued up before many other tours arrived, which made the tour that much better not having to fight huge crowds. And kissing the Blarney stone, what a production! Lots of photo ops, plenty of time to explore and soak in the ambiance. The 2d half of the tour in Cobh (pronounced "Cove") was equally intriguing. This port city is just outside of Cork, the main city in the south. Cobh was the last port of call for the Titanic and there is an interactive exhibit (Separate entry fee) related to the ship. There is much history in the town as well, as this deepwater port also hosts the Irish navy's southern fleet. It is a very colorful, if small, town area that displays a small town Irish vibe replete with several good pubs in which to grab pint and have a very tasty and filling meal.
I booked this trip my arrival date and had a time to check in where I was going to stay. Coach from the airport departed 15 min late so I was at the meeting point about 11:15 am and The sight seeing bust departing at 11:30 am. I was told by booking officer that bus left already as she said should be there 30 min early . How ever I received a voucher for other trip was for Blarney , Cobh etc. Tour guide was excellent he even managed well with timing and dropped nearest to bus station to go Cork airport as I was leaving same day. I absolutely enjoy his very enjoyable knowledge and sense of humour about what he covered for trip. I also very much appreciated with tour officer as she was very kind and gave me complementary ticket.
The trip was a great way to see this wild, untamed corner of Ireland. Our driver, John (Paddywagon Tours), displayed a depth and breadth of knowledge that was more than sufficient for this type of tour. He shared numerous anecdotes along the way, on any and all aspects of Ireland. He pointed out things that would have been easy to miss if we didn't know to look for them, a very valuable function. His stories kept the action moving and made the trip that much more enjoyable
Exactly what we needed, they drop you off at the Blarney Castle, then you have 2 hours to look at the Castle at your own speed. After that you will be dropped off at Cobh, you also have 2 hours here in this city. After the two stops, you can decide, if you want to go to the National Park, the Jameson Destillery or go back to Cork. The transfer were easy and always on time. The guide we had, was very kind and funny. i can totaly recommend this tour
The trip was wonderful! The driver was really nice and funny. He made sure we understood everything that was happening. He also made sure we laughed and had fun. He informed us what was the best things to do. The ride was really relaxing and informative.
