Cork City & Surrounds Private Day Tour

Cork City & Surrounds Private Tour

Explore Cork City and surrounds like a local with a professional local tour guide in a luxury Mercedes-Benz Minivan. Your luxury coach driver/guide will personally collect your private group at 08:30 direct from your hotel or Cork City Accommodation.

Begin this luxury tour with a visit to the beautiful Blarney Castle & Gardens, of course Kissing the Blarney Stone is a must as once kissed the stone bestows the gift of eloquence or as it’s known locally to give the ‘gift of the gab’. Your guide will then show you around the stunning Blarney Castle Gardens and afterwards lead you to the Blarney Woollen Mills where you will have time to explore the craft shops and have refreshments in the Blarney Woollen Mills Café.

Your guide will next lead you to the seaside town of Kinsale – a small fishing town on the South Coast of Ireland. Kinsale is steeped in history and is a colourful town very popular with visitors to Ireland. Your guide will give you a tour of the winding streets and help you select a suitable Café/Restaurant where your group have the opportunity to have lunch. While in Kinsale you can also visit Desmond Castle International Museum of Wine which today hosts the International Museum of Wine Exhibition, an intriguing story that documents the unique history of Ireland’s wine links with Europe and the wider world.

Following Kinsale the next stop will be the pretty seaside town of Cobh, formerly known as Queenstown. Cobh was the departure point for 2.5 million of the six million Irish people who emigrated to America between 1848 and 1950, so naturally it is full of history. Your guide will be on hand to give you all the history and answer any questions you may have. St. Coleman’s Cathedral towers above the town and is of such structural importance to the town complimenting the distinctly Victorian architecture and streetscape of Cobh.

Departing Cobh your guide will return to your accommodation at 18:00 approximately.

Please Note: Private Tours are based on a group of 4 or more travelling.
