Jonathan was an excellent tour guide. He provided us with plenty of useful information, stories, and a few songs. My daughter and I had an incredible day and I plan on bringing back my eldest daughter and wife the next time we are in Dublin

Amazing trip. Finn was our guide and driver and I have to tip the cap to him. It can’t be easy to both drive that big bus and entertain but he did so very well. A+ for Finn! As for the tour itself, the three castles we visited were so cool. Of the three my favorite was The Rock of Cashel. Of course Blarney Castle and Cahir were great as well. Overall, an awesome tour and a must book!

Initially we signed up Connemara day tour from Dublin. However, the tour was cancelled and changed to Blarney Castle day tour on 15 October 2022. It was a beautiful place but the tour guide was very mediocre. He spoke too fast with muffled speech. The instructions for the waiting location after visiting Blarney Castle was so unclear and confusing that there were at least 6 (out of 16 of the tour group size) of us were waiting at the wrong pickup point. We were so anxious that we could have missed the bus. Highly recommended for a day tour to Blarney Castle, Cashel Castle and Cahir Castle. But check out a better tour company such as Wild Rover Tours with better tour guides and service.

Barry was a great guide. He kept us on time. The three stops are excellent. Enough time is spent even at Blarney Castle. The Mill is a great place for lunch. Great information given along the way.

The trip was excellent and our tour guide was very personable and knowledgeable about our trip. The three castles made time for by quickly. The last castle, Cahir Castle would have been better with a little more time, but overall the trip was excellent.

The tour was very good. I liked that we had a small group of only 13-14 people! We had trouble hearing and understanding the guide a few times. He did a good job but wasn't captivating by any means. The Rock of Cashel was our first stop and self guided. I wish I knew a little more about it before coming. They were out of English pamphlets so downloaded it and read on our way to Blarney.(this was not the fault of this tour company). Blarney was awesome as was Cahir Castle. The tour guide there was great. Despite my comments above which are only to let you know my experience, it was a great day and I'd do it again.

I went early November and it was such an amazing and comfortable experience, our guide was very informative, kind, and had a nice sense of humour. The sights are beautiful to see (but remember your gloves and raincoat!). There's an ample amount of time appropriate for each site and it's a good day trip to see the southern countryside. I would recommend this to anyone who has a few days in Dublin!
