Cork and the astonishing countryside that envelops it will have you lost for words. Until you kiss the Blarney Stone, which, legend has it, gives the gift of eloquence. Cork is alive with the cultural richness of a modern city – with its renowned film and jazz festivals.
Legendary for its seafood and its beauty, Kinsale and its surroundings bring you to the heart of this wonderful land. Up the coast, witness some of the most dramatic natural beauty Ireland has to offer, including the lovely Beara peninsula. Out in the wild landscape, you’ll find Sean Nós, a form of unaccompanied singing.
Along the mouth of the Shannon, visit Limerick’s historic castles, and spend an intriguing couple of hours at the Hunt Museum. It’s a short drive to the imposing Rock of Cashel, one of Ireland’s most magnificent sights.
