Scenic Railtour to Cork and Blarney Castle

My favorite excursion!
November 20, 2022
Our trip to Blarney castle was perhaps the best day of our entire trip! Our guide was top-notch! He was so helpful and genuine and attentive to those who needed help or had questions. He was a wealth of information! I can’t say enough about him! Blarney castle, and Blarney village in the surrounding area was so beautiful and the people were so kind. I didn’t kiss the Blarney Stone because I wasn’t interested in doing that but I don’t feel like I was missing much because the line was so long. Therefore I was able to walk around the grounds and it was just magical!

Great excursion

This was a wonderful excursion. It was fun to ride the train and then to have the bus right there to pick us up. It's a lot cheaper and you experience more than the one time we took the excursion from the ship. We were able to climb and kiss the Blarney stone if you wanted to or just walk the grounds and see all of the beauty there. Since we had already kissed the stone this time we walked around. Did not feel press for time at all. Made a few surprise stops on the way back to the ship. The tour guide and bus driver were very enjoyable. I would highly recommend this excursion if you would like to an enjoyable trip to Blarney Castle.

A great tour. The host was on time, very informative and took really god care of us. Got to ride the train going in and came back by coach. Blarney castle gave us the gift of gab again. This was a fantastic tour and price reasonably. Thanks to Kristin of AAA for introducing it to us.

Kissed the stone

Enjoyed our time in Cork and at Blarney castle. Start of tour started right at the train station . What a beautiful town Cork is . We loved the seaside . St Colman’s Cathedral , the beautifully coloured rows of houses . Our highlight was kissing the Blarney Stone . Waiting in the hour lineup took up most of our time at the castle . There are beautiful gardens all around but couldn’t pass up on doing what we wanted to do and make a wish . Would recommend

Train not operating

Tour went well and would do again BUT the train track was down for maintenance and it was a bus ride not train (a big disappointment). Not the tour’s fault the train was down.

Easy Railway Trip

The cruise ship stopped so near the rail station it was an easy walk and off we went to the Blarney Castle and it’s beautiful gardens! Then we wandered through the village, and back we went!

This was a smaller group than the larger ones booked directly on the ship. Very well planned and executed. The guides were very knowledgeable and friendly.

Great tour - I would recommend this! Representatives were easy to locate at port. Train ride to Cork was good. Bus to Blarney Castle well organized. Tour guide was knowledgeable & friendly. I wish we would have had more time at Blarney Castle/Gardens. It is a beautiful place.
