    Full description
    Depart from Dublin and travel through the picturesque midlands of Ireland, taking in the sights as you whizz past. In your guided vehicle, you’ll be taken to Blarney Castle, a landmark famous for its songs and intriguing stories. The castle is home to the Blarney Stone which you’ll be able to kiss and gain the gift of eloquence. Enjoy a stroll around the fabulous gardens of the Blarney Estate or take the beautiful Lake Walk. Visit the Witches Cave in the castle grounds before having plenty of time to indulge in the tax-free shopping haven of the Blarney Woollen Mills and craft shop. Then, visit the world-famous Rock of Cashel in Tipperary where you will have the opportunity to stroll in the footsteps of St. Patrick flanked by ruins, Celtic crosses, and round towers. Feel the soul of Ireland as you admire the Catholic Church one of the best examples of medieval architecture anywhere in Europe. Afterward, hop back into your transfer vehicle and make your way back to Dublin.

    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.
