Jump aboard your tour bus and meet like-minded, inquisitive fellow travelers on this full day tour from Dublin.

You'll visit the Blarney Castle, famous for the Blarney Stone, which guarantees you'll become a smooth talker when you kiss it!

Dublin is great, but the countryside is greater, so come along and see a different side to Ireland. In addition to seeing the lovely countryside, we will be stopping over at various spots of historic significance, making it an interesting and informative day, with a hint of good old-fashioned Irish craic for good measure. Meet the city with the funniest and some say sexy accents in Ireland. Listen to words such as "langer" and "ye boyo". It's almost like they are singing when they are talking to you.

Last, but not least, you'll visit the Rock of Cashel, historical seat of the Kings of Munster, perched atop a gigantic rock in the lonely countryside.

Cork, Blarney & Cashel Day Tour from Dublin Description

6:50 am
You'll depart Dublin at the crack of dawn and pass by the Guinness Factory on the way out of town

On the way, your guides will tell you more about the sights that you pass in the city center, and maybe advise on the weather you can expect for the day. As you leave Dublin behind, the urban landscape changes to that of the rolling hills and constant hedges of the Irish countryside. You'll pass an area called The Curragh in County Kildare. This area is ideal for training horses, due to the sandy soil that creates excellent drainage, making it an ideal spot for horse racing. Not surprisingly, the Curragh race track is situated nearby. County Kildare is also well known for horse breeding and vast tracks of lands today are owned by the likes of the Agha Khan and Sheik Mohammed. Close to Kildare Town, you will find the National Stud Farm, world famous for its horse breeding, coupled with the lovely Japanese Gardens.

8:45 am
After a short stop over to stretch our legs, you'll pass the Knockmealdown Mountains, made famous by the folk song "Kitty Borne O'Brien". This song is a lover's lament for a young woman who emigrates from Ireland to Canada. Like most Irish songs it is either about a broken heart or killing the English!

Further along the way, you will see the Galtee Mountains, Ireland's highest inland mountain range, with its stony scree-covered summit. This is also a famous cheese making area in Ireland. Tipperary is also home to hurling although Kilkenny their neighbor seems to beat them most of the time! Keep your eyes out for handball alleys while on the bus, a traditional sport played mostly in rural Ireland.

10:30 am
You arrive at Blarney Castle and half the day's driving is already done! Blarney Castle, famous for its Blarney Stone, also has lovely wooded walks and "Rock Close"- a garden filled with Druidic rock formations, believed to be dated back to pre-historic times. To kiss the stone, you have to bend backwards when on the parrifits of the castle, holding onto iron railings- basically hanging upside down. The reward for your efforts: to be bestowed with the so-called "Gift of the gab".

12:30 pm
You arrive in Cork City, where you have 2 hours to maybe grab some lunch at the English Market (now with a very international flavor), go marvel at the Gothic St. Finbar's Cathedral, or even ring the bells of Shandon at St. Anne's Church for a small fee. Cork is home to Murphy's Ale and the Ford Tractor factory.

3:30 pm
At the Rock of Cashel, you'll visit this great Celtic Cathedral, which include the Hall of Vicars, Cormack's Chapel, which has one of Ireland's oldest Romanesque wall paintings and the Round tower, all perched on a solid rock ringed by a curtain wall. This Rock of Cashel, is the seat of the archbishop of the diocese of Cashel and is the sight where the historical synod of Cashel. It dates back from before the Anglo-Norman conquerors and contains an amazing collection of architecture, history and Romanesque art.

4:45 pm
You'll depart from the Rock of Cashel and return to Dublin, maybe listening to some Irish music and reflecting on the day's experiences. You'll reach Dublin at approximately 7:00 pm

Tour does not include hotel pick up. Departure is from Suffolk Street (details on E-Ticket). Rates are per person in US dollars. Please order online or call to order or for more information.
