    Such an incredible tour! Viator linked us with the tour group Extreme Ireland and our tour guide Bobo was as warm and knowledgable as you would want. Our first stop at the Rock of Cashel was incredible. At first I had wished to skip it and spend more time at Blarney Castle but ended up being a highlight of our trip. Walking through the aged grounds was hauntingly beautiful. You will be so happy you got to experience it. Cork is a lively city but can be overwhelming in navigating. This tour gave us the option to roam on our own or follow our tour guide into the local best kept secrets. We got to see a classic old candy shop, the incredible lively market, and to an adventure climbing through the rafters of the Camden bells to get to the roof and see the most incredible view of Cork. We came face to face with the bells themselves at one point. Blarney Castle is a huge tourist attraction. Luckily our tour guide called ahead in the morning to find out if any cruise ships were coming in that could increase the wait for kissing the Blarney stone. This really helped with planning our day. The Blarney grounds are vast and incredibly beautiful. There is so much to see beyond the famed rock. The gardens and witches cave were our favorite attractions beyond the Castle. The stairs are steep to the Blarney stone and the quarters are tight but it was cool to check off the bucket list. This was overall such a value for the incredible experiences you will have. A few tips: Bring snacks for the ride and eat lunch in Cork. Blarney castle is incredible expensive. We also booked tours with Wild Rover, Finn McCool, and Pattys... Extreme Ireland had the roomiest busses which you want when you are traveling for over an hour and the warmest guides. They also have a policy to leave no passengers behind and gave us more time and wiggle room at the destinations. This was not the case with the other tour groups. Have a great time in Ireland and BOOK THIS TRIP!

    So our driver for the Cork trip was a no show. The driver for the Moher said to go with him since we were leaving the next day. The cliff’s we closed due to wind, we spent 3 hours off the bus in 13 hours. Are suppose to get 10 Euro back when it should have been at least 15 between the cost differenc

    It was a good trip and our guide was nice but then again he was so annoying. He had a Monotone voice that put you to sleep which a lot of us wanted to do hed keep talking an would say one more thing and then Ill let you rest but hed kept going on and on and on. Hed talk about things from his generation that the 20 year olds had no clue about that was on this trip. He need to give us tired people a break and when he does talk make it lively and fun. Now the transport bus was terrible. It was very small and for a 2.5 hr trip each way you need something more comf.

    Driver/tour guide had nice balance between being informative and giving us time to just look out the window.

    First, the bus driver Edel was fantastic. She was engaging, entertaining and fun. The ride from Dublin was about 3 hours. We stopped on the way out/back at a rest stop which broke up the trip. Not to bad in the morning because you could enjoy the landscape, but very long ride back in the dark. The visit to the Rock of Cashel was very interesting with great views of the countryside. The ruins of the former castle were pretty impressive. The visit to Blarney Castle was somewhat disappointing, because there wasn't much of a castle to see. You climb the stairs narrow to the top and you can see/kiss the Blarney Stone, but that was it. The grounds were pretty impressive and we spent most of our time wandering around, but then spend the remainder of our time in a very large store that sold Irish goods. If the trip to Blarney Castle was s bit disappointing the trip to Cork was very disappointing. Not much to see other than a quick walk down a outside shopping plaza and of course a few pubs if you wanted a drink. Same sites you'd see in Dublin, but a step down...not a place I'd revisit. Overall, a very long day. Bring food, drinks and a book for the bus ride. .

    This trip was flat out amazing. My wife and I were going to rent a car and drive out to western Ireland for a couple days but the itinerary changed and we decided to book this day trip. David our driver was an amazing guide, giving us facts about the country and area as we drove through. The whole trip was a success, we would have never thought to stop and see the Rock of Cashel or spend time in the city of Cork, but due to this trip we did and both were amazing stops. The Blarney Castle was definitely the high light of the tour, but all the additional stops, David's shopping advice, David's knowledge, and jokes made the tour fantastic.

    We had a good time on this tour. The Blarney Castle and grounds were a must to do. We went to the top of the castle and kissed the Blarney Stone! We enjoyed Cork and getting to walk around and eat and shop some. Would recommend this tour!!
