Blarney Castle Day Tour from Dublin including Blarney Stone
From US$58.01
Get a feel for the scenery and history of both County Tipperary and County Cork without the need to rent a car on this day trip from Dublin. Accompanied by a guide, visit the area's highlights, such as Blarney Castle, St. Coleman's Cathedral, the Galtee Mountains, and the Titanic Experience, hearing commentary about each along the way. All entrance fees included for a hassle-free experience.
What to Expect
After meeting your guide and group in central Dublin, climb into a comfortable, climate-controlled tour vehicle. Your guide will provide commentary for each stop along the way of your tour.
Pass first through County Tipperary’s Golden Vale, enjoying views of Galtee Mountains. Stop at the Rock of Cashel to follow in the footsteps of St. Patrick, passing a collection of ruins, round towers, and Celtic crosses.
Continue on to Cork City, where you’ll have time to explore on your own. See can’t-miss highlights including the English Markets, where you can grab lunch with a pint of Irish stout (both own expense).
Head for Blarney Castle for an independent stroll: Enjoy the Lake Walk, visit the Witches Cave, and stop to kiss the Blarney Stone to ensure your “gift of gab.”
On the way back to Dublin, stop at the Blarney Woolen Mills for some tax-free shopping.

They are stops, the stop at Blarney Castle is about 3 hours, and that includes the Castle, The Gardens, and Lunch/shopping. Rock of Cashel is a couple of hours and there is a very nice woolen shop there as well.
