Exclusive Kinsale, Cork City and Blarney

This tour provides a comprehensive view of the southern region of Ireland, encompassing the main attractions of Cork City, the charming fishing and sailing village of Kinsale, and a visit to the legendary village of Blarney, renowned for its iconic castle.

Your knowledgeable local guide will introduce you to Cobh before continuing the journey to Kinsale, about an hour away. Along the way, you'll pass through the Lee Tunnel and pause for a photo opportunity at Charles Fort. Enjoy some leisure time to explore the picturesque town of Kinsale, where you can take a stroll around its charming harbor and vibrant yachting center.

Proceed from Kinsale through the scenic rolling pasture lands to reach Cork City, where you'll have the opportunity to take in some of the city's key highlights. Journey to the village of Blarney, renowned for its iconic Blarney Castle, one of Ireland's most famous attractions, where the legendary stone is said to bestow the "gift of eloquence" upon those who kiss it. Atop the castle's summit lies the Blarney Stone, reached by ascending 100 steep steps within the ruins. At the summit, you'll be treated to splendid views of the castle gardens, the expansive parkland, and a distant view of Blarney House.

You'll have around an hour and a half to tour Blarney Castle, wander through the village, or browse the diverse offerings at the well-stocked Blarney Woolen Mills shop. Within the shop, you'll find an extensive range of high-quality Irish goods, encompassing crystal, cashmere, crafts, candles, pottery, ceramics, and, naturally, traditional woolen knits. You will then return to Cobh via the most direct route.

Please Note: This tour might operate in reverse to accommodate the visit to Blarney Castle.
