Tour Details

Enjoy a day in the Irish countryside as you meet locals and visit historic castles and beautiful cathedrals on the Cork and Blarney tour.

Begin your journey as you depart from Dublin and head out into the wilderness. Pass by the The Curragh in County Kildare, a common place for horse breeding. You will see the Knockmealdown Mountains, made famous by the love ballad, "Kitty Borne O'Brien." Further down, you will pass by the Galtee Mountains, a region known for its cheese production. You might also witness a game of the heavy sport of hurling.

The next stop is Blarney Castle, where you will have a chance to kiss the world famous Blarney Stone. Irish tradition entails that you must bend backwards and kiss the stone upside - down. Don't worry, it doesn't require as much flexibility as it seems. After your kiss, you will be able to walk along the wooded trails referred to as "Rock Close." You will see many unique rock formations, some of which date back to prehistoric eras.

The next stop, Cork city, is where you will stop for lunch. A fun place to get traditional Irish food is the English Market. It features many different cuisines, including organic dishes from local farms. After you satisfy your stomachs, you'll continue on your tour to the great St. Finbar's Cathedral. This impressive church, constructed in Gothic style architecture, will be one of the most majestic sites you'll see in all of Ireland. You will also visit St. Anne's Church, where you might be able to ring the bells!

The last stop on your Dublin day trip is at Rock of Cashel, where you will see the beautiful Celtic Cathedral. This 13th century building contains some of the oldest preserved Romanesque wall paintings in the world. From there, you will head back to Dublin to conclude your Cork and Blarney Tour.

Your trip will be guided by a friendly and knowledgeable guide. He will ensure that you have a memorable experience and will provide you with endless information about each of the places you visit on this outing.
