Day 1 -
Cork City Tour - Blarney Castle
Have a walk through Cork City, second city of the Republic of Ireland. Cork centre is built on an island in the River Lee, just upstream of Cork Harbour. The two channels of the River Lee which embrace the city centre are spanned by many bridges, and this gives the city a distinctive continental air.
There are many attractions for visitors to Cork City to savour. The imposing St. Fin Barre’s Cathedral is one such attraction. It stands on perhaps the oldest Christian site in Cork.
Kiss the Blarney stone and receive the gift of eloquence at the top of Blarney Castle, Cork.
Blarney Castle is one of Ireland's oldest and most historic castles, an ancient stronghold of the McCarthy's, Lords of Muskerry, and one of the strongest fortresses in Munster.
Attracting visitors from all over the world, the castle is situated 8 km from Cork City. In the grounds of the castle the Rock Close and gardens convey 'druidic' charm and magical delights of centuries past.
