The tour that I booked was for Rock of Cashel and Blarney, but that’s not what we did. The tour was chartered thru Elegant Irish Tours and their Blarney Day trip included entrance to Cahir Castle and Blarney. We only stopped to take a picture of the Rock of Cashel. They also did not have the same pickup location that I booked. The tour guide was great and overall it was a perfect day. Just very misleading. Once you book, ensure you check with the specific tour company, regarding travel arrangements. Melissa

Most enjoyable.

Wish only we had seen Cork's main street, but all else was fine. Perhaps, too, a more atmospheric spot for lunch after Blarney.
