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.

Joseph, the coach driver and tour guide, did not sing or talk enough. I had a full TWO minutes of my own thoughts; it was terrible.

Just kidding. Joseph was beyond expectations with his knowledge and love of country. He was a miracle worker the way he navigated that huge coach bus among other cars on the small windy roads of coastland! We loved the singing, humor, and extensive history lessons that he offered. I never thought I would want a 4-hour bus ride to be longer! He went above and beyond to make us feel like we got the best Ireland could offer. Joseph has set the bar for all other tour guides and has made lasting memories my husband and I will never forget.

I went to the Giant's Causeway tour and even though my first impression was that the tour looked a bit expensive in the end it was well worth it. I totally recomend it to all the people that love this kind of activity. My tour didn't start the way I had in mind as when I arrived my name wasn't on the list but that didn't stop Bud (our bus driver and guide) to sort the problem really quick :D he said go in (not sure if I had paid or not) and enjoy the tour as much as you can that I will sort everything else :D and he did! I was really impressed :D He entertained us the entire time with his jokes, information and singing ahah he was really nice, friendly, gave us lots of advice on what to visit, where to go, chose an amazing restaurant, waited for us all the time, taught us celtic and to be honest he was one of the best parts of the tour :D so thank you very much :) the tour it self it's amazing. You can lots of things including the causeway, dark hedges, castles and you go to belfast as well. It's a really complete tour :) I would definitely repeat it and I am sure I will come back to Dublin to do the remaining tours that Bud mentioned (cliff's, connemara, etc) as unfortunately I didn't had time for all! Keep up with the fantastic job!

We went on the tour to the Cliffs of Moher. I was nervous because we had our two small children with us (2yrs/6mo). But both kids did great on the bus and everyone was welcoming, especially our tour guide Mike Murphy. He was hilarious and sang a lot of Irish songs and kept the bus laughing the whole trip. He was very knowledgeable at every stop we made along the way. We had plenty of time to explore at each spot and not rushed at all. Fish and chips was delicious at the lunch spot and we lucked out with the weather. Highly recommend this trip.

This was so gorgeous. PJ was a great guide and all the stops were worth it. The tour company takes you to an awesome restaurant for lunch (not included in ticket) and to other places around the area so that you have a broader view of Ireland. I had a wonderful time, but my only complaint would be that the tour company I used did not have wifi while others do. This made my day a little difficult as I could not contact home when I needed to or keep up with my friends who I wanted to visit while I was there. Worth the money at $50, however the other tour company I saw offered a tour for the same price with wifi. Perhaps they'll add this soon.
