Welcome to our Cork & Blarney Tour
Our guided Cork and Blarney day tour leaves Dublin daily at 6.50am. We travel down to the South of Ireland seeing two impressive mountain ranges along the way, the Knockmealdown Mountains and the Galtee Mountains. We head straight to the Rock of Cashel with your guide amusing you with historical information, jokes, mythology and maybe a song or two along the way. We spend an hour at the Rock of Cashel, an impressive hilltop fortress in County Tipperary. You have an hour to see the Cathedral, admire the ancient tapestries and artefacts and explore the grounds. From here we head to Cork where you will have an hour and a half to explore the city. Highlights that we recommend are the English Market – a great place to get a bite to eat, Saint Anne’s Church where you can ring the Shandon Bells for a small fee and climb the tower for panoramic views over Cork city or simply wander the charming streets and get to know Cork. From here we head to famous Blarney. We have an hour and a half to explore Blarney Castle and kiss the Blarney Stone to get the gift of the gab. The gardens around Blarney Castle are spectacular and well worth exploring. Head to the Rock Close and find the Wishing Steps to make a wish. Once we have explored this fantastic location, we head back to Dublin.
