Full description

Set off on board a luxury, air-conditioned bus and watch Dublin's urban cityscape give way to the rolling, green hills of the Irish countryside. Drive through several areas of interest, including the Galtee Mountains and the Curragh in County Kildare, which is home to Ireland's National Stud Farm. First, arrive at Blarney Castle which is known around the world for its famous Blarney Stone. Kiss the stone and receive the “gift of the gab." Be sure to explore the rest of Blarney Castle as well as its lush grounds and woodland walks. Discover the scenic Rock Close by taking the Wishing Steps.  Depart Cork and arrive at one of Ireland’s 7 Wonders, the Rock of Cashel in County Tipperary.

Explore the Hall of Vicars, Cormack’s Chapel, the Celtic Cathedral, the Round Tower, and the surrounding grounds filled with ancient high crosses. Admire one of Ireland’s oldest Romanesque wall paintings inside this world-famous historical landmark. For your final stop of the day, visit one of Ireland's largest and best-preserved castles, Cahir Castle. The Castle was built in the 13th century, to house the Butler family. Built as a defensive castle it still boasts a lot of the original structure.

Afterward, return to Dublin city center to complete your tour.

I enjoyed Blarney Castle, but felt it was the most touristy spot visited during my time in Ireland. Unfortunately, it was pouring rain the day I was there so I chose not to tour the gardens, but climbing the ancient steps to the top of the castle was a highlight.

Excellent tour. Our guide was incredibly knowledgable, fun, personable, exciting, and gave us a fantastic day long our many stops. We learnt about history, art, culture and so much more. I am well traveled and have high standards, and am nearly impossible to please when it comes to paid tours. I was extremely happy with our tour guide - he was great, and the coach driver, was the like Michael Jordan of drivers; truly excellent... Time and money well spent
