We rented a car and visited from Dublin. We made this stop in late afternoon around 3pm which was perfect because all the tour busses had left. We were able to walk straight to the top and kiss the Blarney stone
Beyond Dublin, Ireland offers enchanting castles, ruins, and other notable landmarks, and on this day trip, you’ll see three of the country’s most popular highlights. Don’t worry about arranging trains or navigating the countryside yourself; an air-conditioned coach makes it simple to discover Blarney Castle (and the famous Blarney Stone), Cahir Castle, and the Rock of Cashel in a single day.
First, you’ll visit Blarney Castle, home to the famous Blarney Stone. Legend has it that those who climb the tower’s 127 steps to kiss the stone will earn “the gift of the gab.”
Next, head to Cahir Castle, one of the Ireland’s largest castles scenically located on a island in the River Suir.
Finally, visit Rock of Cashel, an impressive archaeological site with thousands of years of history, before returning to Dublin, where the tour ends in the evening.
