It was a beautiful day to visit and our driver was very knowledgeable. The walk up the stairs to the Blarney stone was challenging if you are not in fairly good physical condition.

One must traverse the narrow halls to climb to the top of the castle. Scenery is lovely! Pictures explain rooms. Bus driver great and knowledgeable!!!

Nice to have the Irish Coffee provided at stop in Cobh on the way back. Driver was also the tour guide and was excellent. Learned a lot. Tour left a bit late waiting for 9 person group. Broke their own rules of no more than 30 minutes between departures. I'd recommend this tour, but the train to Cork leaves from dock and arrives at Cork station with bus to Blarney castle that may afford you the added time to kiss and shop.
I like booking with Viator, good outfit. I rescheduled a tour and it was no issue.

Not one to do bus tours as a rule but trip advisor ratings were top reason to do it. We had a fantastic time and the driver Ian was the best tour guide ever commentary was exceptional . Highly recommend!
