We will meet in front of the Molly Malone statue on Suffolk Street. Before leaving you’ll meet your fun-loving and knowledgeable tour guide and your fellow travel companions! Our exciting day tour will begin by travelling through Ireland’s southern terrain. As we leave the city behind us, we’ll soon pass into an area referred to as “The Curragh” within County Kildare. This region is absolutely perfect for breeding and training horses.
We arrive at Blarney Castle, which is the highlight of the tour for most. Blarney Castle is known around the world for its famous Blarney Stone. Kiss the stone and receive the “gift of the gab”. Blarney Castle isn't all about the Stone; the Blarney castle itself is worthy of exploration as are its fantastic lush grounds and woodland walks. There is much to see and explore. See the Rock Close and find the Wishing Steps to make a wish!
You will have the chance to discover the Rock of Cashel, which is considered to be one of Ireland’s 7 Wonders. This is a site of immense historical importance as it was the seat of the King of Munster. This location was a fortress, which dates back before the Anglo-Norman conquerors reigned over the land. Not to mention, there is an extensive collection of historical, architectural and artistically related pieces gathered here.
For the last stop enjoy a guided tour of one of Ireland's largest castles, Cahir Castle situated along the River Suir in Co. Tipperary. Built by Conor O'Brien, Prince of Thomand in the thirteenth century.
We will arrive at one of Ireland’s 7 Wonders - the Rock of Cashel! Here we’ll explore the Hall of Vicars, Cormack’s Chapel, Celtic Cathedral, Round Tower, and the surrounding grounds filled with ancient high crosses! In addition, you’ll have the marvelous opportunity to gaze upon one of Ireland’s oldest Romanesque wall paintings inside the world-famous historical landmark!
