My cruise ship was to be in Cobh in July. I found the ship's prices high so checked into independant tours & found eCoach (much less expensive). They knew my ship would be at the rather inconvenient Ringaskiddy dock instead of right at Cobh. They modified their usual Blarney & Kinsale bus tour to suit this - unfortunately that meant... More

We chose a local tour company, eCoach Shore Tours, for our day in the port of Cobh in the County of Cork, Ireland. It was an early start for our all day tour of the area which included Blarney Castle. On leaving the ship we were directed to the coaches parked nearby and were soon on our way. Our driver/guide...

E-Coach / Butler Tours did a great job. We especially liked our driver, Patrick (Paddy) who was so personable and humorous and made the tour much more enjoyable. We arrived early at the Castle and Gardens se were able to visit Blarney Castle and Gardens and enjoy the climb. Highly recommended. Bob and Diane Miller, Mission Viejo, CA

This is the second time we have taken this eCoach tour. We still have not seen all the Blarney castle grounds. The tour is a fantastic value. The ship offers the same tour in a large bus at 4 times the price. If visiting Cobh this is the easy choice.

The guide was very informative. The tour was well organized and we were able to see the Blarney Castle before the crowds arrived. Kinsale was a beautiful little town, where were were given ample time to dine and browse. Altogether, a great day.

Booked this tour prior to leaving Canada for a transatlantic crossing on the Regal Princess based on reviews on trip advisor. My wife and I paid 49 Euros each, less than half the price of a similar excursion through Princess. Upon our arrival in Cobh, the bus was located within a 100 metre walk from the ship with reps from... More

This was one of the best tours we have taken. The driver was well informed and and excellent driver. We left on time from each stop and returned to the ship when we were told we would do so. We were able to beat the crowds as we left earlier than the cruise ship organized tours. We would use then... More
