(Half Day Tour)
Depart from the port of Cobh for a panoramic sightseeing tour of Ireland’s second city – Cork. Built on a marsh, the city proper is inter-laced with winding canal and river, which give it a distinctly European air. The River Lee divides the city in two and is perhaps best reflected in the well-patterned architectural development incorporating the best of old and new. Cork is the home of Murphy’s stout and also to the world famous Jazz Festival. Although a busy industrial city, it is also an important shopping centre. The principal streets are lined with fashion houses and department stores stocking quality Irish goods.
The Highlights of the city include the City Hall, St Finbarr’s Cathedral, The Grand Parade and St. Patrick’s Street with Shandon Steeple overlooking the city to the North.
Having seen the city’s principal sights your tour will continue visit Blarney Castle.
Blarney Castle is to step back in time, and feel the enchantment of a long and heroic past. Here is one of the great historical sites of Ireland, renowned throughout the world. The view from the entrance gate sets the scene immediately, with fine vistas of parkland crowned by Blarney castle rising up in its entire ancient splendour, framed by clumps of trees.
From Blarney, the excursion returns directly to the ship in Cobh.
