Tour Details

Enjoy two full days taking in the natural beauty and stunning attractions on the south and southwestern side of Ireland during this 2-day Ireland bus tour. You'll have plenty of time to explore Blarney Castle and the assortment of charming sights that will catch your eye throughout this scenic 2-day Ireland train tour. Pack your bags and get ready to see a new side of this beautiful country.

On the first day of your southwestern Ireland tour, you'll take a train to Cork, a populous city that was once a monastic settlement. From there, you'll depart to the nearby Blarney Castle. The Castle is home to the Stone of Eloquence (also known as the Blarney Stone). Before leaving, make sure to give the rock a big kiss; those who do are said to acquire the gift of eloquence. You will also have time for shopping and lunch on your own.

You'll continue to Cobh for a short city tour. Visit St. Colman's Cathedral, then proceed along the sea front, past the former White Star line offices en route to the beautifully restored Victorian railway station / transatlantic terminal. There you will find the Cobh Heritage Centre, displaying artifacts from all facets of Irish History, including the Great Famine and the city's status as the last port of call for the ill-fated Titanic. Following a trip to Killarney for check-in at a bed & breakfast, you'll have the evening free to explore this quaint town.

The second day of your two-day Ireland tour takes you around the Ring of Kerry. This scenic route features jaw-dropping mountain scenery, so keep your camera close at hand. Irelandís highest mountains are located in Kerry and Carrauntouhil, which can be seen en route. Make a stop at the Kerry Bog Village Museum, which will give you an insight into how people lived and worked in rural Ireland in the 18th century. The village is the only one of its kind in Europe. Later on the approach to Waterville, on a clear day there are views of the Skellig Rocks, where Star Wars 'The Force Awakens' was recently filmed. You will make several photo stops, a stop for lunch on your own, and one final stop at the pretty village of Sneem.

An essential part of any visit to Ireland, this tour circles the magnificent MacGillycuddy Reeks and runs through its many passes and valleys along the shores of Dingle Bay and Kenmare Bay. Marvel at the unspoilled natural wonders in Ireland's most beautiful region. The Ring of Kerry provides many unforgettable memories as it passes through the many picturesque villages such as Glenbeigh, Waterville, and Sneem, and returns via Ladies View, the famous Lakes of Killarney, and through the Oakwoods of Killarney's magnificent National Park. At the end of the tour you will be brought to the railway station at Killarney. There's no better way to spend two exciting and informative days experiencing the gorgeous landscape and rich cultural heritage of Ireland.
