Excellent taste of Ireland
Nov 2021 • Couples
We enjoyed this excursion very much. I would recommend that anyone attending dress in layers and with good walking shoes. It was hard to hear our tour guide but we were in the back of the bus.

All-time favorite tour guide
Nov 2021
Went with Phillip who is local to one of the places you visit on this tour and he was a blast. Blarney and Cashel were especially worth seeing. Blarney Castle wasn't crowded at all when we went so there was plenty of time to see the gardens, kiss the stone, do the wishing steps, etc. and still get some shopping done. Overall a really good option if you like castles or if you're trying to decide on which Blarney tour you should do. I've gone on many tours with other Dublin day tour companies that I've enjoyed, but Phillip is the best guide I've had and I'd love if the company gave you a chance to see which guide is running each tour so that I could pick another one that he's running.

This tour was amazing!
Oct 2021
The day was very long and tiring, but we saw so many fantastic sites! Our tour guide and driver was Phil and he was just great. Very personable, had interesting stories and historical information to share, and he loves puppies. Super safe driver too, and always made sure we could find our way back to the bus. We would highly recommend this day trip, just don't expect to be able to do a bunch of site seeing the next day. You'll be way too tired. Also, a great tip is to take your lunch with you so that you have more time for seeing all the cool things! Some people might feel like it was a bit rushed, but we thought there was just enough time per stop. Worth the price.

Best Tour of My Trip
Nov 2021 • Friends
This trip was amazing! Phillip was the guide and I swear he knew just about everything. Even people at the castles knew who he was and I was fascinated bmaking! He was very patient and willing to answer any questions someone had. The castles themselves were beautiful. Kissing the stone and walking the wishing steps at Blarney are a must. If I could do this tour all over again I would. There is so much to see that if I did it again I'm sure it would be almost like a new tour.
