Full description

Set off on board a luxury, air-conditioned bus and watch Dublin's urban cityscape give way to the rolling, green hills of the Irish countryside. 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. First, arrive at Blarney Castle which is known around the world for its famous Blarney Stone. Kiss the stone and receive the “gift of the gab." Be sure to explore the rest of Blarney Castle as well as its lush grounds and woodland walks. Discover the scenic Rock Close by taking the Wishing Steps.  Depart Cork and arrive at one of Ireland’s 7 Wonders, the Rock of Cashel in County Tipperary.

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!

The trip overall was great. I forget the name of our driver but he was super knowledgeable and informative. It was a little hectic in the morning because everyone was waiting for their busses and there was no direction or guidance. Our driver arrived about 10 minutes before we were scheduled to depart and walked us to the bus. We made a stop at a gas station in the morning on the way out for supplies. There is no toilet on the bus so you do have to make sure to use the toilet at the scheduled stops. The 3 castle sites are very cool. There is not much to do in the little town of blarney, but the woolenmills shop is nice and more than just woolens. Blarney has lots of nice walking paths around the grounds.
