Our first destination is the historic town of Cahir, home to a magnificent castle set on an island in the River Suir. Moving on to Blarney, situated on the outskirts of Cork, you'll have ample time to explore the castle grounds and take a leisurely walk through the woods. For the adventurous, there's the opportunity to kiss the legendary Blarney Stone and gain the renowned gift of eloquence.

Next, we visit the Jameson Whiskey Distillery, where we learn about the origins of the drink, the distillation process and even sample a taste for ourselves. In the afternoon, soak in the stunning coastline while en route to the charming fishing village of Kinsale, where we spend the night. The town boasts lively pubs, a wide range of local eateries, and a vibrant atmosphere, which can be enjoyed during your free time as you wander the delightful narrow streets lined with brightly coloured houses.
