Blarney Castle Day Trip from Dublin

1,293 reviews
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.

We went to Spike for the second time and was amazed at the difference from the first visit. I like the way they have done a lot of work but still have kept the true character and the unique look. I feel some places when updated don't get it right. The tour guide was very good had all the knowledge and was able to mix it up a bit with humour. The boat trip is short but lovely and its nice to get time on your own to explore the whole island but I do recommend doing the tour first.

Great history on the Island, our tour guide, John G, was excellent and was quick with the jokes. I could easily have spent another hour or two on the Island

We visited Spike recently and really enjoyed the experience. The ferry was well organised with Covid guidelines adhered to. The guide was very informative and the tour around the Fort was very interesting. Ran our of allotted time (3.5 hrs) to walk around the outside of the Fort. Next time. Well worth visiting. Bring a picnic & enjoy.
