Check in Dublin Heuston Station (Customer Service Desk) for the 14.00 (2pm) departure of Intercity train to Cork. On arrival in Cork 16.40pm we transfer you to your 4 star standard Hotel in Cork City Centre. You have the evening free in Ireland's "real capital" (as the locals would say!)
Pick up at your Hotel at 09:20 where we will travel by road to Blarney Castle and its stunning gardens where we kiss the famous stone and thus acquire the gift of eternal eloquence. Time for shopping and lunch at Blarney Village before returning to Cork and a short city tour including a stop at the English Market (traffic permitting). We have a scenic journey alongside Cork Harbour to Cobh where the "Queenstown Story" Heritage Centre is located in the beautifully restored Victorian railway station and transatlantic terminal. Embarkation point for generations of Irish emigrants to the new worlds from famine times to recent years, including passengers for the Titanic in April 1912. Return to Cork for departure on InterCity service to Dublin (light meals available). Arrival at Dublin Heuston Station is at 20.00 hrs. (8pm).
