Would you like to see much more of Ireland outside Dublin but you only have one day?
One great tour we have tried and tested is the Blarney Castle and Cork Day tour with Irish day tour company which brings you to Rock of Cashel, Cork city and Blarney Castle.
The tour starts at early 6:50am, but if you want to make the most of your time in Ireland it’s worth i . First stop, you will visit the little village of Cashel to see one of the most well-known sights in Ireland:the Rock of Cashel. You can see the beautiful ruins of an old fortress and walk in the cemetery where you can have look at the famous Celtic crosses. After that, your very informative driver will bring you to the second largest city in Ireland, Cork city. You have a plenty of time to have your lunch and explore this remarkable city. The driver will recommend a good pub where you can eat and also the best places to see in this city.
In the afternoon the tour the heads to Blarney Castle where you get around two hours to explore the castle and it’s beautiful gardens. First thing to do when you arrive is to climb to the top of the castle where you will have incredible view of the gardens and of course kiss the famous Blarney Stone. As your driver will explain the stone has apparently the power of eloquence and (everybody) who kisses the stone will receive gift of the *gab !
After you kiss the Blarney stone, a stroll in the gardens will bring you to unique spots such as the Poison Gardens, Water gardens (to see the jungle garden with amazing waterfalls), Woodlands Rivers and Lake, Seven sisters… This is the perfect place to enjoy Irish nature. Before you leave the largest Irish shop in Ireland. is tempting for a few Irish souvenirs
Your day trip is now over and you get back to Dublin around 7:30pm. It’s a longish journey, but don’t worry it will fly by, because your driver will share the most fascinating legends about Ireland and tell some very funny stories .Plus if you received the reputed power from the Blarney Stone you will be taking non stop all the way home !
We’ve tried this Blarney Castle & Cork day tour and loved it . We hope you will too !!
