Luxury full day tour starting and ending in Cork to Blarney, Kinsale & Jameson Whiskey
If you have a day to explore the magnificent Cork area and want to leave the driving to someone else, this is the tour for you. Your tour starts from your accommodation in the bustling City of Cork. Many choose to take a day away from Dublin and hop on the train arriving to Cork Railway Sation (Kent Station). You'll relax and enjoy the scenery from Dublin heading south where I'll be waiting to collect you to get your private tour underway.
This day takes you to the unique highlights of Cork with me at the wheel to take the hassle out of exploring. Take in Blarney where kissing the stone blesses you with the gift of gab forever. Then it's on to the quaint Kinsale for lunch with a whiskey experience at Jameson on the journey back to Cork.
Cork also has a convenient airport offering flights to and from all over Europe. Should you arrive via air, I am happy to collect you from the airport as well. Either way, as always, this day is "Your Tour - Your Trail"™ and a day tour in the southeast will not disappoint
Your day begins from the doorstep of your accommodation should you be staying in Cork, or at Kent rail station upon your arrival from Dublin via train. This tour can also start at a cruise terminal in The Port of Cork such as Cobh.
It's then on the way to visit the highlights of the City of Cork and its many fabulous local attractions - go as you please tour.
There will be time for lunch and many opportunities for unique photo stops at my favorite locations all along the way.
Best dates book fast, so book early and join me in 2018 for "Your Tour - Your Trail"™ .

Our day trip to to Cork, Kinsale and Cobh Village was outstanding! Gerard is so personable, and he has great knowledge of the area! We saw so much in one day! His Irish intelligence, exposure to the famous Irish comedian, and great music in the car was so fun for our entire family. I would recommend Gerard for sure! We hope to get back to Ireland again soon!
