Luxury, full-day shore excursion to kiss the Blarney Stone and more


This full day tour departs Cobh immediately upon disembarking your ship where we'll head to Blarney. Atop the tower of the 15th Century McCarthy Castle is the mecca of Ireland, The Blarney Stone, a stone who 'so ever kisses o he never misses to grow eloquent' or so it is said. You'll spend the morning in the lovely Gardens that surround the castle. Next it's off to explore the Blarney Wollen Mills and enjoy your morning coffee or maybe an Irish Coffee! Kinsale then awaits with its yacht filled harbor and picturesque views. You'll visit the site of the Battle of Kinsale (1601) and where the Lusitania was lost in 1915. You won't miss Charles Fort as we approach Kinsale town, the gourmet capital where you'll enjoy your light lunch followed by plenty of time to stroll the narrow streets and browse the friendly shops. On returning to Cobh you'll have time to learn about the Titanic Experience as it passed the great Island of Ireland. It's always "Your Tour - Your Trail"™ on my tours. Join me!
