What people are saying about County Cork
Had a tour with Dublin David. Nice guide, who kept the bus entertained in the right times with plenty of silent breaks as well. Very helpful, and informative overall. You have to stick to all the times provided by the guide. Rock of Cashel was enough time but Blarney castle...it is a long wait to Blarney stone so you kill all the time waiting for that and not seeing the rest of the Blarney castle/park. As far as Cork city...its not really a tour. Its just a an hour and half long stop to eat lunch at a specific spot (you can choose whatever place but guide organized something with Gallagher's pub) but there was a lack of vegetarian choices so we went to another place instead. Otherwise, nothing remarkable to see in Cork. If I were to do this over again, I probably drive a rental car or take a train straight to Blarney and spend half-day at the park, and visit another nearby castle can return. But for what this tour is about, tour organization and the guide were great!
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Blarney and Cork through Get Your Guide. We are very happy that we went and experienced everything. However, our driver Joseph was incredibly long winded and talked/sang throughout the entire trip. When we were making our trip back to Dublin, we were wiped and just wanted some rest, yet Joseph continued to go on lengthy discussions about the area and history of Ireland. On the plus side, he was very polite and personable. He also made sure that we were on a strict schedule so that we could pack in as many things as possible in the allotted time. All in all, we were pleased with our experience.
An excellent experience! Both adults and children really enjoyed it and Connor, our driver & guide besides being a great character was also very helpful and informative throughout the trip. I would recommend this trip to anyone, regardless of the time of the year or weather conditions. Especially Blarney Castle could well be a single, day long destination, especially for those with children. So much to see and do there... We would definitely like to do it again.
This day tour was great! We had a very knowledgeable tour guide which made the ride more interesting and because he knew the route so we he times things wisely so we had plenty of time to see all we could! Would definitely recommend it and go back in a heartbeat! Thank you
Enjoyed seeing the Rock of Cashel and Blarney Castle. Cork is a beautiful colorful city. Using the bus tours to get around is definately the way to go. This takes the stress out of driving and navigating in unfamiliar countries.
