Upon arrival, you will be met and transferred to your hotel. The remainder of the day is at leisure to explore Dublin or consider taking an optional hop on/hop off tour.
Today, enjoy a tour to the Republic’s second largest city. As you leave Dublin behind, the urban landscape changes to that of the rolling hills and constant hedges of the Irish countryside. Pass an area called The Curragh in County Kildare, famous for its history of horse racing. County Kildare is also well known for horse breeding and vast tracks of lands today are owned by the likes of the Agha Khan and Sheik Mohammed. You will visit Blarney Castle, where you can kiss the famous Blarney Stone and gain the ‘gift of the gab’ before arriving in Cork City. Stop by the English Market, one of the oldest of its kind still trading today, as well as visiting the Gothic St. Finbar’s Cathedral or perhaps St. Anne’s Church. On your way back to Dublin, stop by the Rock of Cashel which has one of Ireland’s oldest Romanesque wall paintings, as well as some amazing architecture and history. (B)
