Departing from Dublin Heuston Station, you'll catch the train to Cork (full breakfast service available onboard). From Cork, you'll travel by coach to the famous Blarney Castle. There will be time here for you to kiss the famous stone and thus acquire the gift of eternal eloquence.

This was a fantastic trip. I toook my wife and 10 year old son. The train was great -- beautiful country side and easy ride. The visit to Cork was really interesting but the best part of course was Blarney Castle. I'm sure my 10 year old will never forget kissing the blarney stone -- what an incredible experience. The Tour staff were very nice and very informative. I would highly recommend booking this trip especially if you only have a few days in Ireland.

glad we selected the option to go by by rail/coach and not just coach.. pleasant train ride. our guide Bob was fun and shared lots of interesting tid bits. we made several stops not advertised on the itinerary. the castle grounds were lovely.. wish i had done my homework, was not aware you climb up to the top of the castle to the blarney stone, be prepared, its not for the faint of heart or claustrophobic !! through out the day we had time on our own to shop and eat which is nice in these tours.. this was a good choice, enjoyed it alot
