What you can expect

Explore southern Ireland with a day away from Dublin in County Cork. Hear the history of the famous Blarney Castle and partake in the tradition of kissing the Blarney Stone. Discover Cork's maritime past as you tour some of the city's highlights, including the famous harbour and island town of Cobh.

Speed through the beautiful Irish countryside travelling by train to Cork. Here, board the coach to Blarney Castle and learn about the 13th-century citadel. Seek out the Blarney Stone at the top of the fortress, hang upside down to kiss it, and as legend goes, receive the gift of eternal eloquence.

Journey back to Cork where your guide leads you to the top sights in town, including Cobh, a port town on an island in the harbour. Famous for being the Titanic's last stop before its infamous voyage, Cobh has a rich nautical past. It's the site from which millions of Irish people seeking new lives in America emigrated. Hop back on the train for the return trip to Dublin.
