The southern region of Ireland boasts some of the most stunning scenery and remarkable sights in the country. Visit the famous Blarney Castle set among lush hills, explore Cork at your leisure, including the famous bells at St. Anne's Church, and stop at one of Ireland's wonders, the Rock of Cashel.
Your day begins with scenic drive through the Irish countryside passing verdant rolling fields and mountainous ranges including the Galtee Mountains, Ireland's highest inland hills. Upon arrival at Blarney Castle, explore the ancient structure built more than 600 years ago. See the Blarney Stone at the top of the fortress, hang upside down to kiss it, and as legend goes, receive the gift of eloquence.
Continue to the city of Cork, where you have the chance to explore at your leisure. Try lunch at the English Market, now with a very international flavor, and visit Gothic St. Finbarre's Cathedral or the renowned Bells of Shandon at St. Anne's Church before boarding your coach to County Tipperary.
The Rock of Cashel, also known as Cashel of the Kings or St. Patrick's Rock, is a set of medieval buildings on an outcrop in the Golden Vale. Wander around the momentous site—including the 12th-century round tower, High Cross, Romanesque chapel, and the restored 15th-century Hall of the Vicars Choral—as your guide provides insightful commentary about the site's historic significance.
