Best day at Blarney Castle
Anthony_R, Sept 2023
Always great to have a local guide providing information on the history and country side. The places we visited were amazing.
Katherine_T, Sept 2023
This tour was really nice. Unfortunately we were unable to see Rock of Cashel due to a tropical storm but we did make a photo stop! Alex was a good tour guide!
Blarney for the gift of gab
Crystal_P, Sept 2023
This tour was awesome!! The Rock of Cashel was beautiful and we definitely had enough time to explore it. Blarney was awesome, but I wish that we had more time to explore it as well as Cork. The line to kiss the infamous rock was a little long when we went. Our tour guide was absolutley phenomenal!! He was actually the best tour guide that I had out of all the 9 tours we went on in Ireland and England!! Highly recommend Paddywagon tours.
A Grand Day in Ireland!
Delores_L, Sept 2023
Loved Rock of Cashel, Blarney Castle and Cork! Our guide Paul was very good and funny! I would highly recommend Pattywagon Tours!
Sandra_B, Sept 2023
The best part of our tour was Paul, our driver and guide for the day. Paul was very knowledgeable and shared facts, history and a fabulous Irish playlist. We enjoyed every stop! Thank you, Paul!
Blarney Castle and more!
Stella_C, Sept 2023
It was fun but I was disappointed that we couldn’t go to the English Market. Had I known it was closed on Sunday we would have chosen a different day. It would have been a great day without the torrential rain. Driver/guide had fun stories and lots of information.
Something to see
Becky_A, Sept 2023
Such a fun trip. Beautiful sights at the castle. Loved the recommendation for other places to hit while local
Fun times at the Blarney Castle, Rock of Cashel and Cork City.
Blanca_C, Sept 2023
This tour was lots of fun for me because you saw a lot. You get to se the Rock of Cashel and the beautiful country side. After, you get to see the Blarney Castle which was my favorite because it's just lovely with the gardens around it. If your adventurous you can climb all the tiny-tiny stairs to kiss the Blarney stone! It was fun and the line goes pretty fast. You can get a picture with a certificate stating you kissed the Blarney stone. It was 10 Euros and if you want an electronic version of it emailed it will cost you 12 Euros. Nice shops around the castle to checkout. You get see Cork City just a quick stop for some lunch/ a beer but still nice to check out. Can try a Murphy beer here because this is where it originate. Try the Murphy Stout and compare it to Guinness.
Our driver/guide was...
Marilynn_G, Sept 2023
Our driver/guide was great for this rainy day ~he was knowledgeable but very entertaining and positive!! The sights are amazing which goes without saying. The only suggestion would be to maybe stop for lunch in Cork before going to the Blarney Castle if possible.
Double Charged
Susan_V, Sept 2023
I was double charged. How can I get my money back? no viator phone number. Trip was fine. Problem with Viator
Ancestral Homes
Greg_M, Sept 2023
One of my family lines built both of the castles. Blarney Castle has beautiful grounds to walk around. The Rock of Cashel was absolutely breathtaking. Especially learning that it was the center of power in Ireland for centuries. It was the castle of The High King of all of Ireland.
Excellent tour
sanderson25032, Sept 2023
Excellent tour, all the stops were interesting and fun. Our driver, Paul, was superb, fun and very knowledgeable. At first we thought the stop at Blarney Castle would be too long but there is a lot more to see besides the castle. The gardens are beautiful and there is a great gift shop there.
A great day
Leanne_A, Sept 2023
It’s a long day but well worth it. Bus was comfy and our tour guide Don was really knowledgeable about the sites and Irish History
Blarney Castle Tour complete w Blarney-gifted Tour Guide!
Damian_M, Sept 2023
Great venue. Jovial, informative tour guide and bus navigator; named: Paul, managed our tour group efficiently and advised best ways to enjoy the sights w each venue stop. Pre-recorded Music and sing along moments during the bus ride enhanced the mood of the passengers as well. Enjoyed the day!
Beautiful Blarney!
Erik_V, Sept 2023
Honestly from beginning to end the whole 12 hrs with our tour guide Frank was impeccable! He kept us laughing and was so careful with us all as if we were his children. Lunch at Gallaghers was so delicious and the overall experience was 10/10!
Paul is the BEST
Jackson_E, Sept 2023
Paul was literally the best tour guide, and one of the best people in general, that I've ever met. His natural intuition about what to share and how to set the tone was incredible. He is going to stick in my memory forever
Kiss the Stone
Mason_C, Sept 2023
The tour was exceptional. Paul our tour guide was very knowledgeable and a great driver. The sights are a must see when you visit, and Paul made a long drive pleasant.
Your will enjoy this day and want more
Pamela_S, Sept 2023
Blarney castle and the Rock of Cashel was very nice. We really loved the gardens equally as well. Wish we would have had more time in Cork!
Outstanding tour
Michelle_M, Sept 2023
Enjoyed the tour and hearing about all the history in the area. Paul did an outstanding job. We would recommend this tour
Great tour, well worth it.
John_H, Sept 2023
The tour guide was very knowledgeable, and entertaining. It was well worth the money. There is a lot squeezed into this tour. I kinda wish we had more time at each site, but considering how many stops there are, the time table is completely understandable. I highly recommend this for people who want to see alot of Ireland.
