This was a fantastic tour. From our morning stop at the Rock of Cashel, to Blarney Castle and the beautiful gardens surrounding it, and then Cahir Castle on the way back to Dublin, we enjoyed every second of it. Our guide, Derek, was lovely- informative, friendly, and helpful. So much history and beauty in one day tour.

I came out of this trip with 12 new friends! We had a tour bus about 19 people and I had Philip as my tour guide again! We had an absolutely perfect day! The weather was beautiful, all 3 castles we visited were picturesque. Philip again was an absolute joy to have guide us around. He made the trip even better than it was! The only thing I wish we would of done is cork city but besides that, book this tour!

An exceptional day with one too many stops

The Rock of Cashel and Blarney Castle were more than we could have dreamed. Felt like we were in a fairytale. We didn’t realize how big the are was at Blarney castle and there was so much to explore. Our guide Phillip was very entertaining. Both my daughter and I wished we had more time at Blarney to explore the gardens and the house as well. While our last stop was interesting I would have traded the last stop for more time. The last castle was mostly closed due to Covid which may have led to some of the disappointment. The Rock of Cashel was absolutely beautiful as well. Loved every moment we got to explore.
