Blarney Castle Day Trip from Dublin
From US$70.69

Beyond Dublin, Ireland offers enchanting castles, ruins, and other notable landmarks, and on this day trip, you’ll see three of the country’s most popular highlights. Don’t worry about arranging trains or navigating the countryside yourself; an air-conditioned coach makes it simple to discover Blarney Castle (and the famous Blarney Stone), Cahir Castle, and the Rock of Cashel in a single day.

What to Expect
Meet your guide at a convenient location in central Dublin and hop aboard an air-conditioned coach. En route to stops at three of Ireland’s top landmarks, relax and enjoy the rolling, green scenery of County Tipperary and County Kildare, supplemented with commentary from your guide.

First, you’ll visit Blarney Castle, home to the famous Blarney Stone. Legend has it that those who climb the tower’s 127 steps to kiss the stone will earn “the gift of the gab.”

Next, head to Cahir Castle, one of the Ireland’s largest castles scenically located on a island in the River Suir.

Finally, visit Rock of Cashel, an impressive archaeological site with thousands of years of history, before returning to Dublin, where the tour ends in the evening.

This is definitely a must see. This was one of my favorite castles I went to in the UK. The views from the top were amazing and the grounds were spectacular!

Beyond my expectations.

We visited on a beautiful spring day and it was really worth visiting. As we approached the Castle there was an amazing bagpipe player which really added to the experience. He was very friendly too. I was so impressed with the Castle and the beautiful...More

They picked us up at the Molly statue. It will state it on the itinerary. The buses usually wait on the main road so you can’t miss it.
