My wife and I took the Cork / Blarney Castle / Rock of Cashel day tour. If you are planning this just know that this is around a 12 hour day. We met down by the old stone church near the Molley Malone statue located on Suffolk St. (just off Grafton). Our guide Gerrard did a really good job explaining all the history. The things I liked is that he talked when he needed to, but didn't feel compelled to talk the whole entire day. Each and every stop was just incredible and all self guided. You had plenty of time to get photos. Because we were blessed with an amazingly sunny and beautiful day we cut our time a little short in Cork and focused more time on Blarney Castle and it's grounds. The trip starts early (you meet around 6:45am), but we did stop for a quick breakfast and potty break along the way. I would recommend this tour as an opportunity to see these great sights.
