We have absolutely loved our day tour of the Boyne Valley with Celtic castles. Our guide Shane was amazing, very helpful, full of information and interesting stories and had a very good sense of humor. He even drop us off to our Traditional Irish Storytelling Bus Tour stop after making sure with the guys there that we won't be left behind. All in all, it was really a memorable trip and one of the most beautiful days we've had in ireland. Thank you, would love to come again.

Yesterday my husband, 10 month old son and I did the Giant's Causeway tour and loved every bit of it. The coach was lovely and comfortable, the tour guide was very nice and knowledgable, and the tour itself was so much fun. We will definitely reccommend to friends when they come to Ireland.

We took the day tour out of Dublin and our guide was Liam. He was friendly, punctual, extremely factual and open to questions. The Rock of Cashel was just lovely and our guide pulled over so we could get a great photo op from the road. Blarney Castle was very interesting and we had no queue since it was early December. We kissed the stone without wait. I was able to catch a great photo of my husband on my phone without having to pay the 10 Euros for the professional one. The grounds are lovely and the wool store next to the castle is worth the shopping. Cork is not very interesting and there's nothing of note to see. I don't see the purpose of the stop other than to catch lunch.

Hi, Thanks for leaving a review. We are delighted that you enjoyed the tour and you are right that the time of year suited the kissing of the Blarney stone and I personally love the Irish countryside in Autumn and winter. We Stop in Cork to give people a chance to explore Irelands second City and make some suggestions of things to do but we do realise time is limited. We are very happy that you enjoyed the tour and hopefully you will travel with us again sometime.

We recommend using Extreme Ireland Day Tours to journey into the Irish countryside/ attractions outside of Dublin. Both buses were on time (which is very important) and the tour guides were well educated in local history, songs, culture, etc.. If possible, ask for 'Famous Sheamus'. Fairly priced to competition and to our research a much better value.

As everyone states, the Cliffs of Moher are a necessity. The Connemara tour displays Ireland's natural countryside beauty. We wish we had more days to explore outside Dublin.

I used Extreme Ireland for tours to both Devil's Causeway and Blarney Castle. First driver, Colum, was hilarious and made the journey thoroughly enjoyable. He also provided advice excellent advice at the attractions.

I was initially disappointed with the second guide, Sarah, having been spoilt by Colum's humour, but she too proved very friendly and knowledgeable. Albeit, particularly violent with the accelerator.

And Blarney Castle is simply spectacular - hands down the prettiest place I have ever seen.
