We used eCoach while visiting on the Ruby Princess. It was considerably less expensive than the ship tours and the other tours in this port. We visited the Blarney Castle, Kinsale, and drove by the other sites. I bought my tickets in advance for Blarney Castle and we had enough time to climb the castle, but not to visit any... More

Ecoach provides a great trip in Cobb Cork at 1/2 the price of the cruise line They had a number of people with signs directing you to the small (20 passenger) buses just outside the cruise terminal. 5 minutes away. They leave early to avoid some of the lines at the Blarney stone. 1st stop. It still takes a while... More

We used ecoach for our shore excursion in Cork/Cobh and couldn't have been happier. Ian was our driver/guide and was fantastic. As a lifelong resident of this beautiful area he provided wonderful insight and knowledge which added so much to the experience. He got us to the very crowded Blarney Castle before the large tour busses giving us plenty of... More

ECoach plans a great day of site seeing & a little shopping at your leisure. Very comfortable air conditioned buses leave the pier at 8 AM and get you to Blarney Castle early to avoid the long lines, that will form quickly. If you chose not to climb the steps to kiss the Blarney Stone or walk the grounds, you... More

This tour was exactly as advertised (and as others have described on TA). Our tour guide/driver, Ian, was outstanding as both a tour guide AND as a driver. Although we didn't climb to the top of Blarney Castle, we got there early enough that we could have without the long, long line (we beat the Princess tours). And the gardens... More

Interesting tour, comfortable coach ride, lucky us, unusual weather - bright blue skies, sunshine, warm. Blarney Stone got kissed, interesting "Poison Gardens", had lunch at a local pub, great day! Would definitely recommend ECoach.

Thoroughly enjoyed the entire day with Ian from eCoach tours while in port with the Ruby Princess. Selected this tour due to the places we stopped but it exceeded expectations in that "free time" was incorporated at each stop. We had a choice of getting a bite to eat, shop, or just walk around the area. Would recommend unconditionally!

The tour bus picked us up from the pier and we had an interesting and scenic tour of Cobh on our way to Blarney Castle. Our early departure (8 AM) insured our getting to the castle and in line to kiss the Blarney Stone ahead of others. (The line was 2-3 hrs. long as we departed.) We drove through Cork... More

Outstanding tour. We were the first bus to leave the pier and therefore arrived early at the Blarney Castle. It was an outstanding and well organized tour. I would highly recommend them. Sincerely, Robert Chase

Tour was excellent, a little bit pricey, even though it is less expensive than cruise. Cruise charges in US Dollars, tour company charges in Euro's. We were able to visit and see a lot of Cork. We enjoyed the tour. Blarney Castle was the highlight. We felt kind of rushed at the St. Colman's Cathedral since we had to wait... More
