Built nearly 600 years ago by one of Ireland’s greatest chieftains, Blarney Castle has been attracting attention ever since. Over the last few hundred years, millions have flocked to Blarney making it a world landmark and one of Ireland’s greatest treasures. Now that might have something to do with the Blarney Stone, the legendary Stone of Eloquence, found at the top of our tower. Receive the “gift of the gab” by kissing the famous Stone. The gardens surrounding Blarney Castle are a paradise for walkers and are worth exploring.
You will have the chance to discover the Rock of Cashel, which is considered to be one of Ireland’s 7 Wonders. This is a site of immense 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 reined over the land. Not to mention, there is an extensive collection of historical, architectural and artistically related pieces gathered here.
We will pass alongside two separate mountain ranges; the first are the Knockmealdown Mountains that have been made famous by the Irish folk song “Kitty Borne O’Brien”. Next, we’ll come across Ireland’s highest inland range, the Galtee Mountains. The views are simply breathtaking! Afterwards, .Visit Cahair Castle which was once the stronghold of the powerful Butler family, the castle retains its impressive keep, tower and much of its original defensive structure
This uniquely structured tour departs from Dublin every day of the week at 6:50am and will deliver you safely back into the city center at approximately 7:00pm. For further details and a detailed breakdown on your day with Irish Day Tours, click on the itinerary

TESTIMONALS - Blarney Castle & Cork Tour
Blarney Castle Tour was Great!
Joseph was the tour guide on my trip to Cork, Blarney Castle, Cahir Castle, and the Rock of Cashel.
Joseph was a great tour guide. Extremely knowledgeable about the area, a great driver, and he was hilarious. He talked a lot, and he joked about how much he talked. But I didn't care...I learned a ton from him and his humor was laugh out loud perfect. Don't forget to carry a little cash for a tip.
I was blessed with great weather, so the Blarney Castle was spectacular with the sunshine. Be prepared to walk, the grounds are amazing and if you are an explorer and love to walk, you will enjoy it rain or shine.
The Rock of Cashel is great, but make sure you stop at the little shop just below the castle. The staff is unbelievably friendly and they have a great selection of wares.
When we arrived at Cahir Castle, they appeared to be closed due to the filming of the Green Knight. But Joseph got us in and we were able to see the remnants of the filming and enjoy the history of the castle.
The day trip out of Dublin was easy, although a long day! I highly recommend it!
Rock of Cashel,Blarney Castle, Cahir Castle Day Trip
This was an amazing trip. Our guide/driver Mack was fantastic and was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the sites we visited. We were given plenty of time to explore and the other locations. We ate at Blarney in an old stable turned cafe. We did make it to the top of the castle to kiss the stone as well.
Blarney Castle Day Tour
We did the day tour of The Blarney Castle, Cahir Castle and Cashel Castle. Our tour guide was Rob, who deserves more than the 5 stars I can give. It's a long drive but he kept the entire trip fun and interactive with fun humor and conversation. The tour itself was also beyond amazing but Robs knowledge and constant information and his fun sense of humor would make me return again and again. I highly recommend!
Day trip to Blarney with Rob
Rob was incredible! The day trip to Blarney Caste was outstanding. Rob was knowledgeable, friendly and extremely entertaining. He provided history, comic commentary and great suggestions. If you are planning a day trip to Blarney Castle request Rob for your tour guide!’
