Blarney Castle, Rock of Cashel & Cork City Day Tour from Dublin

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Discover the highlights of Cork & Tipperary on this popular day tour from Dublin.

Visit the most famous castle in all of Ireland - Blarney Castle. Lay back and kiss the magical Blarney Stone and receive the gift of eloquent speech for 7 years. 

Enjoy 90 minutes in Cork to see the highlights of the Southern Capital including the English Markets which welcomed Queen Elizabeth II of England on her recent state visit to Ireland.

Also experience Rock of Cashel - a magnificent ruin overlooking the plains of Co. Tipperary.

Your ticket includes admission fees to Blarney Castle and Gardens worth EUR 13.00 & entrance to Rock of Cashel worth EUR 7.00!
  • All entrance fees included means easy entry to attractions
  • Hear guide commentary on the tour vehicle as you travel between counties
  • Multistop tour with all transportation included eliminates the hassle of car rental
  • On the way home, get a chance to do some tax-free shopping 
What to Expect
After meeting your guide and group in central Dublin, climb into a comfortable, climate-controlled tour vehicle. Your guide provides commentary for each stop along the way of your tour. First stop at Cork City, where you 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). Then pass 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. 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.

It was a wonderful time. We did not go into the tower but there was lots to see on the grounds. We had a wonderful sunny day when we went so that helped. We also enjoyed some icecream.
