    Trip was good once we arrived at Blarney. Long drive, smallish van type bus. Uncomfortable due to fact driver L..m was filling his vape pen while driving. Felt the tires hit the ridged wake up tiles more than once. Shame.

    Aiden did a great job. Very funny and informative without talking too much. Great advice and we enjoyed Cork.

    Excellent tour! Guide was prompt for pick-up. Very informative. Adequate stopping points for restrooms and coffee breaks. The scenery was beautiful!!

    Rob our tour guide was great. He maximised the time to pack in as much as possible. And when the weather had forced the closure of 2 sites, he came up with an alternative option which worked out nicely.

    This was a lovely small-group tour of the West/South parts of Ireland. Derrick, our tour guide and driver, was excellent. We absolutely loved seeing Blarney Castle, the Rock of Cashel, and Cahir Castle. The pace was excellent for a small group, and Derrick had great historical tidbits to share with us. Only great things to say about this tour! Highly recommended!

    This tour is excellent because of the tour guide, Ro, He managed the time very well. The tour was very informative. We had enough time in each stop. He really made our day.

    Worth it. It’s a long day but you see some incredible things that I don’t believe we would have without the tour. It’s a long day through especially with kids. Make sure you plan some downtime the next day.

    Perfect day trip from Dublin. The weather was damp and rainy, but it didn't at all spoil the experience. Each of the 3 castles were unique, but equally fascinating. So much history seen in one day. The drive through the countryside was most enjoyable too.

    But the real stars of the show were our guide Mike and driver John. Both very personable and pleasant. They made the day fun and interesting. Also and very importantly, a safe day and timely. They made sure we were all back on the bus at the right time. No waiting for anyone.

    Also the drive back to the city after the long day was great as Mike shared his personal tips for things to do and see in Dublin, and he and John treated us to some fantastic singing. Definitely a highlight to the day.

    Thank you both so much for a fantastic adventure.
