HIGHLIGHTS

 

Blarney Castle   |   Blarney Woollen Mills   |   Kinsale   |   Guided Walking Tour   |   Guided Tour of Killarney Brewing Company   |   Jaunting Car Tour   |   Killarney   |   Bantry House & Gardens

 

A tour which allows us to explore the highlights of both Cork and Kerry, kissing the legendary Blarney Stone, ride around Killarney National Park in a horse-drawn jaunting car and follow the Wild Atlantic Way to beautiful Bantry, taking in the warmth and spirit of this lovely corner of Ireland on the way!

 

 

DAY ONE

We depart from your home with an early pick-up before joining your tour coach for the journey to Holyhead and our crossing to Dublin, after disembarking we continue to Cork and our hotel.  Welcome tea/coffee on arrival whilst your luggage is taken to your room, time to relax before dinner.

 

DAY TWO

We begin our day at Blarney Castle, built nearly 600 years ago, since then millions have visited the castle in order to ‘kiss’ the legendary Blarney Stone to gain the gift of eloquence.  The grounds of the castle are incredibly beautiful and believe by some to have a genuinely mystical quality.  We also have time to visit the Blarney Woollen Mills which are within walking distance of the castle and known as the largest Irish store in the world.  From here we make our way to the picturesque town of Kinsale, known as the gourmet capital of Ireland, free time here to obtain lunch before we enjoy a 1 hour guided walking tour of the historic port and town, where we learn of its links to Robinson Crusoe, polar explorers and pirates!

 

 

DAY THREE

This morning we combine a craft brewery visit with a jaunting car ramble through the magnificent scenery of Killarney National Park.  We enjoy a guided tour of the Killarney Brewing Company and sample the hand crafted beers before our tour continues with a jaunting car ride through the beautiful Killarney National Park to Ross Castle, rest of the day at leisure in Killarney town centre.

 

DAY FOUR

For our excursion this morning we travel along parts of the scenic route of the Wild Atlantic Way to Bantry, we visit Bantry House & Garden, a family home for the past 300 years.  We explore the house and stunning formal gardens at our leisure before perhaps par-taking of a homemade lunch in the tearoom (lunch not included in cost).  We spend the rest of the day exploring the stunning bay of Bantry with its semi-tropical flowers, palm trees & mountain ridges.

 

DAY FIVE

After a leisurely breakfast we begin our journey back to Dublin for our crossing to Holyhead and home.
