Day 3: Cashel, Cork & Kinsale. ▲
Meet your private chauffeur driver today and set off on your Irish heritage and ancestry adventure together. Rearing up from the fertile plain of the Golden Vale in County Tipperary, the Rock of Cashel is a bristling vision of a medieval round tower, chapel, cathedral and castle within a wall, high up on a grassy outcrop. You might like to stop here to explore.
Discover Cork City, packed with the cosmopolitan flavour you’d expect of a harbour city with a very rich historical & archaeological heritage – much of it still in evidence today. See the English Market, a bustling covered market packed to the gills with fresh fish, meat, fruit, spices, chocolate and endless artisan produce, and marvel at the French Gothic spires of St.Fin barre’s Cathedral. Unlock the past with a visit to Cork City Gaol, a former prison and now a museum. Continue towards the “Gourmet Capital of Ireland”, Kinsale, for the rest of the evening at leisure. Hotel Stay: Acton’s Hotel Kinsale
Day 4: Cobh & Spike Island.▲
Travel east to Cobh, a seaport town and the last glimpse of Ireland for many an intrepid (or forlorn) emigrant through the years. Of course, there’s much more to this town than the Titanic, and you might like to see the Cobh Heritage Centre which explores it all, from Annie Moore – the first immigrant to pass through Ellis Island in New York – to the convict ships that departed for Australia in 1801.
Fill your lungs with salty air as you hop on a 15 minute ferry ride from the beautiful heritage town of Cobh to explore the ‘Irish Alcatraz’, Spike Island,with it’s prison cells, deep tunnels, island walks and multiple museums. A hushed and picturesque island, you only have to walk through the solid stone gateway to appreciate how a monastery, fort and prison have all sprung up here over the last 1,400 years.

Day 5: Blarney and Killarney. ▲
