Itinerary

  • Day 1: Cork Counties, Cahir, Blarney Stone, Jameson Whiskey Distillery and South Cork Coastline

    Departing Dublin, you travel south towards Cork, through the lush farming counties of Kildare, Laois and Tipperary. Our first stop is the heritage town of Cahir, where its impressive castle towers over an island in the River Suir.

    You continue to Blarney, on the outskirts of Cork, where you have time to wander the castle grounds and go for a woodland stroll. You may even get a chance to kiss the famous Blarney Stone and receive the ‘gift of the gab’!

    After this, you visit the Jameson Whiskey Distillery. Here you have a chance to learn the history, find out how the drink is made, and taste a little yourself.

    In the afternoon, you glide along the beautiful coastline south of Cork before arriving in Kinsale. This charming little fishing village is your overnight stop, with all its local restaurants and lively pubs. Enjoy your free evening whilst exploring the narrow streets and brightly coloured houses.

  • Day 2: Cobh, Copper Coast, Waterford and Crystal Factory

    Leaving Kinsale in the morning, you make your way to the historic port town of Cobh. This was the last port of call for the Titanic on its infamous maiden voyage. After exploring the stories of Ireland’s past, you head east along the Copper Coast, a Unesco Geopark famed for its beauty and intricate histories.

    You continue until you reach Waterford, Ireland’s oldest city founded by Vikings in the 9th century. Survey the brilliant craftsmanship at the Waterford Crystal factory, explore the selection of superb museums or wander the Viking Triangle on foot.

    In the late afternoon, you travel north from Waterford to Kilkenny. This town is a vibrant place with a thriving pub and restaurant culture. After spending the evening here you’re certain to understand why people voted it Ireland’s friendliest city!

  • Day 3: Kilkenny, Wicklow Mountains and it's National Park, Glendalough and Sally Gap

    In the morning, you have free time to explore the attractions of Kilkenny.

    You then head north into the Wicklow Mountains, where you’ll be impressed by the National Park’s steep granite mountains.

    You follow the winding paths to Glendalough, site of an awe-inspiring 6th century monastery. This offers a perfect opportunity to capture a photograph of the verdant natural setting and the round tower of the monastery. After this, you head through the centre of the National Park to cross the famous Sally Gap, before descending the short distance back to Dublin.
