Motor Tour of Blarney Castle & Kinsale from Cruise Ships in Cobh, Cork, Ireland


The Motor Tour starts once you disembark from your Cruise Ship at the historical and scenic town of Cobh. Cobh has one of the finest natural harbours in the world and the pretty town's architecture and streetscape is distinctly Victorian.

The tour will continue to Blarney Castle & Woollen Mills where you will kiss the Blarney Stone - the Stone of Eloquence and never again be lost for words. You will get the opportunity to shop at Blarney Woollen Mills and have a light lunch or snack at 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 before returning to your Cruise Ship in Cobh.

A Recent Review of this tour

I am not talented enough to express how delighted we are to have met Mary and to have so thoroughly enjoyed our tour with her. We experienced Cobh, Cork, Blarney Castle and the surrounding area so pleasantly that I had Mary take me to a local bookstore to buy a book of those wonderful Irish expressions. Mary is an absolute Irish treasure.
