Explore historic castles, kiss the Blarney Stone and stroll around Ireland's second city on this day trip to Blarney Castle and Cork from Dublin.

Blarney Castle & Cork Tour

On the morning of the excursion, we'll meet up in front of the Molly Malone statue on Suffolk Street in Dublin, before setting off to the south. On the way, we'll pass through an area known as The Curragh, an open plain full of history and mystery, and these days used for horse breeding and training.

After just over three hours' drive, we'll arrive at Blarney Castle, one of Ireland's greatest treasures. This medieval fortress is world renowned for the famous Stone of Eloquence, better known as the Blarney Stone. According to legend, kissing this stone gives the "gift of the gab"! We'll have time to explore the castle ruins and its grounds, home to beautiful gardens and woodland.

Continuing on our day trip, we'll make our way to Ireland's second largest city, Cork, also known as the Rebel City. We'll be met by a local guide who will take us on a walking tour around the city, revealing its fascinating history and pointing out its most iconic monuments. Afterwards, you'll have free time to explore at your own pace and to get some lunch - we recommend visiting the English Market, where you'll find lots of typical Irish delicacies.

Having made the most of our time in Cork, we'll head to one of the Seven Wonders of Ireland: the Rock of Cashel. This historic site is home to numerous structures dating back to the 12th century. We'll explore the Hall of the Vicars, Cormack’s Chapel, Celtic Cathedral, and the Round Tower as well as strolling around the lush grounds filled with standing crosses.

At the end of the day, we'll make our way back to Dublin, and you'll be dropped off at Dame Street in the city centre for 7:15 pm.
