My family of five is visiting Ireland in July. We fly to Cork from London, then spend four nights in Killarney. After landing in Cork we'd like to see Blarney Castle before moving on to Killarney, however, we are not going to have a rental car.
As we'll have five bags with us too, my thought has been that we should hire a taxi at Cork Airport to drive us to the castle, wait while we visit (expensive I know), then return us to the train or bus station in Cork. Does anyone have advice or alternate suggestions?
We're also not quite sure about getting from Cork to Killarney. There is a private taxi service "Silverbus" based in the Limerick area, but I don't know of anything like that which would go between Cork and Killarney. We don't mind taking the train or bus, but would prefer private transport. Thank you for any advice!
