Philip was THE BEST tour guide I’ve ever had — and I’ve had quite a few. Beyond being super kind/helpful, incredibly informative, and an expert driver, he was absolutely hysterical. Me and my family had such a lovely day. It was an extraordinary experience overall — and it was all because of Philip!

This tour fills the day very nicely. The coach trip takes in some wonderful scenery before stopping at each of the 3 castles. The host was funny and informative. The Blarney Castle and its magnificent gardens is something to spend many hours alone. The walking combined with the history and breathtaking views make this a very good tour to attend.
