After meeting your guide and group in central Dublin, climb into a comfortable, climate-controlled tour vehicle. Your guide provides commentary for each stop along the way of your tour.
First stop at Cork City, where you have time to explore on your own. See can’t-miss highlights including the English Markets, where you can grab lunch with a pint of Irish stout (both own expense).
Then pass through County Tipperary’s Golden Vale, enjoying views of Galtee Mountains. Stop at the Rock of Cashel to follow in the footsteps of St. Patrick, passing a collection of ruins, round towers, and Celtic crosses.
Head for Blarney Castle for an independent stroll: enjoy the Lake Walk, visit the Witches Cave, and stop to kiss the Blarney Stone to ensure your “gift of gab.”
On the way back to Dublin, stop at the Blarney Woolen Mills for some tax-free shopping.
