Highlights
  • Guaranteed admission at Blarney Castle, Cahir Castle, and the Rock of Cashel
  • Seamless, round-trip transit from Dublin by air-conditioned coach
  • Learn amusing lore and fascinating history from your guide
  • Get an up-close perspective on the beautiful Irish countryside
What to Expect
Meet your guide at a convenient location in central Dublin and hop aboard an air-conditioned coach. En route to stops at three of Ireland’s top landmarks, relax and enjoy the rolling, green scenery of County Tipperary and County Kildare, supplemented with commentary from your guide. First, you’ll visit Blarney Castle, home to the famous Blarney Stone. Legend has it that those who climb the tower’s 127 steps to kiss the stone will earn “the gift of the gab.” Next, head to Cahir Castle, one of the Ireland’s largest castles scenically located on a island in the River Suir. Finally, visit Rock of Cashel, an impressive archaeological site with thousands of years of history, before returning to Dublin, where the tour ends in the evening.

Climbed to the top of the castle. Of course had to bend over backwards and almost break your neck doing it. But two helpers are there to help put you in position . Gotta have some one take a photo for you! Research the history before you go.
