Full-day shore excursion -Sing an Irish Song on Tour with Gerard
This is a full day tour with a difference, when you've kissed the Blarney Stone and are looking for a little adventure off the beaten path. With stops at several fantastic locations this full-day shore excursion will give you a true taste of all that the Southeast of Ireland has to offer. We'll quickly depart once you disembark to get a jump on the bus tours and head to Cork City. With its enchanting Old English Market and lovely shopping streets on the banks of the River Lee, Cork City won't disappoint. It's then off to explore the quaint and colorful town of Kinsale. From Kinsale we'll depart for a visit to Midleton and time for quick taste of Irish Whiskey at the Jameson Experience.
Join me for a shore excursion you won't forget and one one you won't find on the packaged bus tours. Don't be disappointed and book early as the most desirable dates fill fast.
Your tour will be a total of 7 hours from the time your Captain allows you to disembark. We monitor the posted times, even if the Captain changes enroute, so no need to worry. The general itinerary for the day, presuming for example a 9:00 a. m. start time, is as follows:
9:00 a. m. - Your guide awaits to depart for your chosen morning location getting the tour immediately underway
10:00 a. m. - Visit to the Cork City Old English Market
11:00 a. m. - Depart for quaint Kinsale for lunch and time to explore
2:00 p. m. - Depart for an afternoon whiskey at Midleton (The Jameson Experience)

If we are able to depart at 8:30 a. m. , your tour will end at 3:30p. m. and so on. The above is general guideline as to how best utilize your precious time onshore based upon my experience and knowledge of the area, however, your day will be at your pace.

Our visit to Cobh was so memorable due to the efforts of Gerard. We spent an incredible day touring the lovely countryside and visiting spectacular venues in Ireland, particularly link courses such as "Old Head". Gerard was able to take us to places on the various link courses that offered breath taking views. We had time to visit the Jameson distillery, and there we enjoyed seeing how Scotch & Whiskey are distilled. Gerard's vehicle was most comfortable and he played local music for us to enjoy.
