Set off on a journey that winds through storybook towns and ventures into an iconic castle. A panoramic drive through the Irish countryside leads to the small town of Kinsale, heralded as one of the prettiest in Ireland. Enjoy some free time to wander about and explore the cozy shops. The journey then travels through panoramic Cork to Blarney Village, a town steeped in history and set amid Ireland’s woodlands. Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant before making way to the ruins of Blarney Castle. This is the third castle erected on this site and its crumbling ruins date back to the 1400s. Explore the fortress and, perhaps, climb the 108 winding stone steps leading to the mystical Blarney Stone. It’s said those who kiss it are bequeathed the gift of eloquence. Of course, the only one way to know if the legend is true is to kiss it yourself.
