Overview
Tick off three of southern Ireland’s top attractions on this day tour from Dublin, calling at Blarney Castle, Cork, and Cobh Heritage Centre. Absorb sweeping views of the Emerald Isle as you travel to County Cork by train, then zip seamlessly between attractions by coach, leaving plenty of time to kiss the Blarney Stone, tread the streets of Cork City, and be immersed in Irish emigration history in the seaport town of Cobh.
