Drive through several areas of interest, including the Galtee Mountains and the Curragh in County Kildare, which is home to Ireland's National Stud Farm.

I loved Cahir Castle and appreciate that we stopped up the road to get a picture of the castle on the rock from a distance. Kissing the Blarney stone was not on my bucket list! Missing that 1.5 hour line to the top of the castle and walking through the beautiful grounds is the best way to enjoy this site.

great guide/driver, Barry made the tour perfect with his talk about history, stories, and the experience itself. The castles were amazing, I wished to have more time to explore the towns too, but it was far, and traveling consumed a large portion of it. I highly recommend this tour. Thank you for all.

I really enjoyed the experience, I only wish we had more time at Blarney Castle because about 30 minutes of it was spent in the queue to kiss the Blarney Stone. I needed more time to explore the grounds, but overall it was very nice and I saw a lot!

Excellent excursion! I would highly recommend when visiting each of the castles to take your time to take it all in. Of course, be sure to kiss the Blarney Stone!

Great itinerary! We really enjoyed each stop. The guide was a safe driver and played a variety of music. Perfect temperature and volume for music.
