To product

Discover Southern Ireland on this fascinating full day tour!

Leave the city behind and head southbound to uncover the breathtaking landscapes and fascinating history of Southern Ireland. Pass through the Knockmealdown and the Galtee mountains as you head toward Blarney Castle to kiss the Blarney stone and receive the ‘Gift of the Gab’.

Arrive in Cork City were you can explore the English market, marvel at the Gothic architecture and maybe even sample some traditional Murphy’s Ale. Finish your day off with a trip to the famous Rock of Cashel before heading back to Dublin.

Visit 1: Blarney Castle
  • We pass the Knockmealdown Mountains, made famous by the folk song "Kitty Borne O'Brien". Further along the way, we will see the Galtee Mountains, Ireland's highest inland mountain range.
  • We arrive at Blarney Castle, famous for its Blarney Stone. To kiss the stone you have to bend backwards holding onto iron railings- basically hanging upside down. The reward for your efforts: to be bestowed with the so-called "Gift of the gab".

Visit 2: Cork City
  • We arrive in Cork City, where we have 2 hours to maybe grab some lunch at the English Market, marvel at the Gothic St. Finbar's Cathedral or even ring the bells of Shandon at St. Anne's Church for a small fee.

Visit 3: Rock of Cashel
  • We arrive at the Rock of Cashel which dates back from before the Anglo-Normans and contains an amazing collection of architecture, history and Romanesque art.
  • We depart from the Rock of Cashel and return to Dublin.
