Overview
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.
Highlights
  • Guaranteed admission at Blarney Castle, Cahir Castle, and the Rock of Cashel
  • Seamless, round-trip transit from Dublin by air-conditioned coach
  • Learn amusing lore and fascinating history from your guide
  • Get an up-close perspective on the beautiful Irish countryside
What to Expect
Meet your guide at a convenient location in central Dublin and hop aboard an air-conditioned coach. En route to stops at three of Ireland’s top landmarks, relax and enjoy the rolling, green scenery of County Tipperary and County Kildare, supplemented with commentary from your guide. 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.

We had a fabulous time with Jack, our driver and guide! He regaled us with charming stories as we drove through the lovely countryside and visited 3 castles. Of course, kissing the Blarney Stone was a highlight! Jack’s upbeat personality made for a great day!

Our guide, Mr. Nixon, provided a TON of information en-route to the tour. The small bus made the trip very comfortable, and Mr. Nixon signing to us was an added treat!

My personal preference is to have a tour guide and bus driver rather than a bus driver/guide. The driver was a nice enough chap and provided some good commentary along the way but I felt there was very little engagement with the group. We were taken to each castle and then once
