Full description
Climb aboard the Cork Hopper bus and begin your exploration of the best attractions in the county. Make a first stop at Blarney Castle, and take the chance to kiss the Blarney Stone and receive the "gift of the gab" for 7 years. Visit the witches caves in the castle grounds or indulge in the tax-free shopping haven of the Blarney Wollen Mills, Ireland's biggest craft shop.

Next, stop in the historic city of Cobh situated on the Cork Harbour. Hear stories of the millions of Irish people that emigrated from Cobh between 1840 and 1950 and see the place where the Titanic set sail in 1912. See the Titanic monument in the town center and visit the impressive St Coleman's cathedral. 

Climb back aboard the bus and consider jumping off at one of Ireland's most famous attractions, Fota Wildlife Park. Situated in Carrigtwohill, County Cork this 70-acre wildlife park is home to 50 bird species and 30 mammals. Many of the animals are free to roam and interact with visitors such as squirrel monkeys and giraffes.

After this, make an optional stop at the Jameson Experience, located in the Old Distillery in Midleton. The distillery was established in the 1700s and has a wonderful visitor's center. Learn everything you need to know about Ireland's most popular whiskey. Tickets for Jameson Experience are not included but can be purchased on the day. At the end of the tour, the bus will drop you off in Cork City Center.
