Full description
The tour begins at the Cobh Cruise Terminal at 8 AM, from where you'll be picked up. First stop of the day is Blarney. Skip the line and visit the most famous castle in all of Ireland. Lie back and kiss the magical Blarney Stone and get the gift of the gab! You will also have time to visit the world-famous Blarney Woolen Mills, famed as the largest Irish Store in the world.

Next take a panoramic drive through Cork, viewing the highlights of the city such as the River Lee, St Finbarre's Cathedral, Shandon Bells, English Market, and Grand Parade, before heading through the beautiful Cork countryside to the charming town of Kinsale. Enjoy typical views of the rolling fields of West Cork and also a stop overlooking picturesque Kinsale Harbor and its two forts. The historical town of Kinsale is today Ireland's gourmet capital with winding streets, great pubs, and fine restaurants. 

Before boarding your ship, stop in Cobh, famed as the final departure point for the Titanic. Time permitting, we visit the St Coleman's Cathedral, one of the most magnificent cathedrals in the country, and the Titanic Experience, 100m from where the ships dock.

Know before you go
• Each tour is structured to make sure you are back on board your ship in ample time for departure. The service ends back at the dockside after approximately eight hours on tour. If the boat is leaving earlier we will amend the itinerary as necessary.
• During peak season (May 1 - September 30) multiple cruise ships are expected at the major ports on a daily basis. This small group tour tends to sell out well ahead of departure for most dates within this period. Accordingly, it is recommended to make reservations well in advance where possible, to avoid disappointment.
