Motor Tour of Blarney Castle & Woollen Mills and Kinsale Tour from Killarney


Blarney Castle is situated 8 km from Cork City and this historic castle is famous for The Blarney Stone which gives one the gift of eloquence on those who kiss it. The Stone is set into the Castle wall below the battlements and is accessed by a winding stairway from the bottom to the top where you can view the beautiful Irish countryside. The Gardens surround the Castle and include the Rock Close Gardens, The Bog Garden, The Poison Garden among many others. A visit to Blarney Woollen Mills will then follow for a little retail therapy or a welcome cup of coffee or lunch in the Restaurant.

The tour will go to the tourist town of Kinsale where you will view the historical Charles Fort which overlooks Kinsale and built to protect the town against invasions such as the Spanish Armada in 1601. You can then stroll through Kinsale's narrow streets and browse through it's numerous art and craft shops, bookshops, & restaurants, and perhaps enjoy a relaxing drink in one of the local pubs
