Itinerary

 

6:50am

To begin, departure takes place outside the old stone church located on Suffolk Street (sitemap is available within the link to the booking page). Once you’ve found your location of departure, you’ll begin your exciting day tour down through southern terrain of Ireland! However, before leaving you’ll meet your fun-loving and very knowledgeable tour guide who will introduce you to your fellow travel companions! As we leave the city behind us, we’ll soon pass into an area referred to as “The Curragh” within County Kildare. This region is absolutely perfect for breeding and training horses due to the rich and grainy soil that drains easily, enabling this area to be ideal for horse racing. Not to mention, the flourishing lands of County Kildare are owned by the likes of Agha Khan and Sheik Mohammed. In addition, here you will also come across the world famous National Stud Farm as well as the lovely Japanese Gardens.

 

8:45am

After a quick stop to stretch our legs, we’ll pass alongside two separate mountain ranges! The first is referred to as the “Knockmealdown Mountains” that has been made famous by the Irish folk song “Kitty Borne O’Brien”. Next, as you venture further along the way you’ll come across Ireland’s highest inland range, referred to as the “Galtee Mountains”.

 

10:30am

We arrive at Blarney Castle! This is for most people the highlight of the tour,  Blarney Castle known the world over for its famous Blarney Stone. Kiss the stone and receive the “gift of the gab”. Blarney castle isn't all about the Stone, the Blarney manor its self  is worth exploring as are its fantastic grounds and woodland walks.

 

12:30pm

Arrive in the delightful city of Cork where we’ll have approximately 2 hours to independently explore the shops as well as grab a bite to eat before heading off to our next alluring destination. While you’re touring the area, popular attractions to check out consist of visiting the famously diverse English Market, marvel at the Gotchic St. Finbars Cathedral, survey the Ford tractor factory or even ring the bells of Shandon at St. Anne’s Church for a small fee.

 

3:30pm

Once you’ve finished with lunch, we’ll make our way to one of Ireland’s 7 Wonders referred to as the Rock of Cashel! Here we’ll explore the Hall of Vicars, Cormack’s Chapel, Celtic Cathedral, Round Tower and the surrounding grounds filled with ancient high crosses! In addition, you’ll have the marvellous opportunity to gaze upon one of Ireland’s oldest Romanesque wall paintings inside the world-famous historical landmark! This is a site of huge historical importance as it was the seat of the King of Munster and this location was a fortress which dates back before the Anglo-Norman conquerors reigned over the land. Not to mention, there is an extensive collection of historical, architectural and artistically related pieces gathered here.

 

4:45pm

Now it’s time to make our way back towards Dublin where you’ll enjoy listening to traditional Irish folk tunes along the way. To conclude your day full of adventure, you should plan to arrive back in Dublin city centre around approximately 7:00pm.

 

7:00pm

To finish off, we’ll arrive back in Dublin to reminisce about all of the exciting highlights!

“Rock of Cashel, Blarney & Cork”

Our trip was January the 2nd, so we were still feeling slightly rough from our NYE festivities. The trip began quite early, meeting early in the morning. All our fellow passengers arrived on time and we were off. Our driver, Mac, noticed a few of us weren't feeling too well and informed us to let him know if we needed him to stop.
Mac, our driver and commentator, was great. He dropped us off at Cashel and let us sightsee and told us where he'd be waiting and the time to get back on board. He was hilarious and very knowledgable of areas we drove through to our destinations. While at Blarney he even mentioned to us about the clearance section of a gift shop just outside the Blarney. While at Cork, he left the bus and even led us on foot a little through the city and up Shandon Bell Tower, all the while being just as funny and friendly as he was on the bus. Even got us the student rate to view the bell tower.
Overall, Mac was the highlight for my day trip, as he provided excellent information with a comical style. We even got him to accompany us to a pub in Cork, though he refused the drinks we tried to get him to drink!
I hope everyone has a great experience as we did on our day trip with Extreme Ireland. I'd highly recommend asking for Mac as your driver. He also teaches Gaelic, so he taught us a few words!

“Cork/Blarney and Cliffs of Moher”

Liam was guide both days and was a wonderful guide. He told different stories and facts on each tour. The only thing that was disappointing was that the weather did not cooperate, winds at the cliffs were close to 70 mph and cold. Great job Liam, Merry Christmas and wish you great fishing.

Great experience on two tours”

I used Extreme Ireland for tours to both Devil's Causeway and Blarney Castle. First driver, Colum, was hilarious and made the journey thoroughly enjoyable. He also provided advice excellent advice at the attractions.
I was initially disappointed with the second guide, Sarah, having been spoilt by Colum's humour, but she too proved very friendly and knowledgeable. Albeit, particularly violent with the accelerator.
And Blarney Castle is simply spectacular - hands down the prettiest place I have ever seen.

“Very Funny, Very Nice!”

Took 2 trips and had a wonderfull time on both, unfortunately I do not remeber the names of the guides, (Cork & Blarney on Aug 13, and moher on aug 14 if you can compliment them) the guide for cork was hilarious from the moment we started the trip. He knew about history and about the places we were going. He was also ver understanding and so were the rest of the tourists when I had a problem in cork and arrived to the bus a bit late. he did make a few jokes about it but we could take them, none of them were offensive and they were earned. The cliffs tour was also beatiful, the guide was not as funny as the cork guide, but it was very good with the jokes as well. Loved them, already recommended them and will continue to do so for anyone I know is going to ireland.
For anyone trying to decide between renting a car or a tour bus, the besides the jokes and the other tourist which result in an overall nicer day you also get stops that you might have not anticipated beforehand. you get some extra views and some things that put the tour bus above driving. you won't be able to learn everything you need to see by reading on the web. I do understand the comfoft of going by car but you get more on the bus.
Thank you Irish day tours for making our trip the best one!

“Cork & Blarney Tour with Eddie”

We booked the Extreme Ireland tour to Cork and Blarney after seeing a flyer upon entering Dublin. We highly recommend this tour. Our tour guide/bus driver Eddie was a wonderful guide, full of humor and knowledge about the area. We traveled in an extremely comfortable charter bus from Dublin to Cork and Blarney, taking in the scenic views along the way. We also had a bonus stop at the Rock of Cashel, an amazing abandoned castle on a hill. We had plenty of time to explore the Blarney Castle and grounds and get something to eat at a nearby pub. The tour was great, and it was made even better by Eddie, who gave us some true Irish flavor for the day. Highly recommended!
