    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Pass By: Paddywagon Day Tours, Bridge St Tourist Offce, Cork Ireland

    Pick up from our Paddy's Palace Tourist Office which is located on Bridge Street. Check in with our friendly staff and they will direct you to your driver/guide.

    Stop At: Blarney Castle & Gardens, Monacnapa, Blarney, Cork T23 Y598 Ireland

    Blarney Castle: Famed in song and story

    We stop in the village of Blarney to give you the chance to kiss the Blarney Stone and receive the "gift of the gab" for 7 years. Situated on the battlements of the famed Blarney Castle you shall have to bend over backwards to kiss the stone! You can also visit the witches caves in the castle grounds or maybe you will indulge in the tax free shopping haven of the Blarney Wollen Mills, Ireland's biggest craft shop.

    We strongly advise a stroll through the magnificent castle gardens.

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: St. Colman's Cathedral, Cobh, 5 Cathedral Pl, Kilgarvan, Cobh, Co. Cork, Ireland

    Historic Cobh is situated on the Cork Harbour. Here we hear stories of the millions of Irish people that emigrated from Cobh between 1840 and 1950. Cobh was also known as Queenstown, renamed when Queen Victoria visited. In 1912 it was the last stop of the RMS Titanic. We will see the Titanic monument in the town center and visit the impressive St Coleman's cathedral. The town also has a monument to remember the sinking of the passenger ship Lusitania, during world war 1 in 1915, which happened close to Cork harbor.

    Here you will have ample free time to explore this historic sea-side town.

    Duration: 2 hours

    Pass By: Paddywagon Day Tours, Bridge St Tourist Offce, Cork Ireland

    Tour finishes in Cork City Centre, you will have enjoyed a great tour with a great group of fellow international travelers. Slainte/to your health!

    We arrived at Ringaskiddy, across the bay from Cobh and they were there when we got off the ship. Just make sure you tell them which port you will be at.
