Dublin: Full-Day Tour to Cork, Cobh and Blarney Castle

1. Dublin: Full-Day Tour to Cork, Cobh and Blarney Castle

Escape the hustle and bustle of Dublin on a full-day tour south to the vibrant city of Cork. Kills the Blarney stone at Blarney Castle, admire Georgian buildings in the city center, and visit Cork Harbor to see a Victorian era train station and transatlantic terminal.   Depart by train from Heuston Station in the early morning for the InterCity service to Cork City. Upon arrival, head to Blarney Castle, where you can kiss the famous Blarney Stone and acquire the gift of eternal eloquence. Relax with some free time to shop and enjoy lunch in Blarney village. Head to Cork for a short city tour of Ireland’s southern capital, famous for its arts, music and literature scenes.  Built on the site of a 6th-century monastic settlement, the city center is full of Georgian buildings, 17th-century alleys, and dynamic new architecture. Continue your journey along Cork Harbour to Cobh, location of the Queenstown Story Heritage Center.  Set in a beautifully-restored railway station of the Victorian age, it was also the transatlantic terminal that served as the point of departure to the New World for generations of Irish emigrants, from the time of famine up to recent years. Transfer back to Cork City center to catch your return InterCity train back to Dublin, with a scheduled arrival at Heuston Station at in the evening.

What people are saying about Cobh

This tour was amazing. It allowed the perfect amount of time to see Blarney castle (and kiss the stone), lunch, shopping and a pint. Our tour guide Terrance was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He ensured we always knew what was happening as well as the next steps of the tour. 10/10 must do while in Dublin

Nice trip, well organized, perhaps too much time in Blarney at the expense of Cork where we didn't even have half an hour to visit it on foot.

Terrance was an excellent guide, he was knowledgeable, friendly and took his time the entire day with us. It was a long day, and he made it fun.

This was a very well-paced and informative tour. I had time to soak in the sites and take a lot of photos. David was a great tour guide.

Got to experience and visit some extreme places in beautiful Cork!
