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.

I booked this trip my arrival date and had a time to check in where I was going to stay. Coach from the airport departed 15 min late so I was at the meeting point about 11:15 am and The sight seeing bust departing at 11:30 am. I was told by booking officer that bus left already as she said should be there 30 min early . How ever I received a voucher for other trip was for Blarney , Cobh etc. Tour guide was excellent he even managed well with timing and dropped nearest to bus station to go Cork airport as I was leaving same day. I absolutely enjoy his very enjoyable knowledge and sense of humour about what he covered for trip. I also very much appreciated with tour officer as she was very kind and gave me complementary ticket.

Exactly what we needed, they drop you off at the Blarney Castle, then you have 2 hours to look at the Castle at your own speed. After that you will be dropped off at Cobh, you also have 2 hours here in this city. After the two stops, you can decide, if you want to go to the National Park, the Jameson Destillery or go back to Cork. The transfer were easy and always on time. The guide we had, was very kind and funny. i can totaly recommend this tour
