Meet up & Blarney Castle
After meeting in Cork City, the first stop is to the world famous Blarney Castle, here you can explore and enjoy the Castle’s beautiful grounds and gardens.
If you choose to, you will have the opportunity to climb to the top of Blarney Castle and kiss the Blarney Stone, which is reputed to give the gift of Irish eloquence to anyone who kisses it.
The tour then travels into West Cork for lunch. The activity on day one is a hike on the magical Sheep’s Head Peninsula, which is a place of outstanding beauty. The hike is a perfect opener for the adventures ahead.
You’ll be staying in 3* & 4* accommodation, carefully selected by your host James to ensure you have the best place to rest your head and recuperate after each days travel.
The accommodation is a mixture of hotels and B&Bs offering authentic Irish hospitality. The standard for all accommodation includes private en-suite bedrooms with TV, WiFi and breakfast daily.
On the first night, the tour will stay in West Cork Hotel.
