Craicing Coastal Cork 2020

Our Coastal Cork itinerary is based in the medieval town of Youghal, the gem of Ireland’s Ancient East. From here, we explore the beautiful surrounding areas, visiting Blarney Castle, the Cobh Titanic Experience, Spike Island and the Jameson Irish Whiskey Experience.

GREAT NEWS: After Brexit (deal or no deal), Passports still won’t be needed for entry into Ireland. How’s that for a great deal!
Day 1 Arrival

We arrive at our hotel in time for dinner.

Day 2 Kinsale & Blarney Castle
This morning, we enjoy a 1 hour guided walking tour of the historic port and fishing town of Kinsale, where we learn of its links to Robinson Crusoe, polar explorers and pirates! After our tour, we have time to explore at leisure and enjoy a spot of lunch before visiting Blarney Castle, the home of the world famous Blarney Stone.

Day 3 Titanic Experience Cobh & Spike Island
Today, we visit the Titanic Experience in Cobh. Located in the original White Star Line Ticket Office, the building is steeped in history and was the departing point for many thousands of White Star Line passengers. We enjoy a personal guided 30 minute tour that will take us on a virtual journey to board the tenders and join the Titanic for her maiden voyage to New York. In the afternoon we take a short, scenic ferry ride from Cobh to Spike Island which over the last 1,300 years has been home to a 6th century monastery, a 24 acre fortress and the largest convict depot in the world. We enjoy a fully guided 1 hour tour of the island and fortress with some time to explore at leisure.

Day 4 Jameson Distillery Midleton
This morning, we enjoy a visit to The Jameson Distillery in Midleton. We enjoy a 75 minute guided tour which will include a film, walking tour and a Jameson signature drink. We spend the afternoon in Youghal, with its miles of sandy beaches and rich medieval history.

Day 5 Departure
After breakfast, we make our way home.
