Leisurely Irish Countryside & Kinsale

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from $59 USD / Adult
Leave the city behind and wind your way through some of Ireland’s most beautiful countryside. Departing Cobh, you’ll follow the River Lee and eventually cross it by way of an underwater tunnel that opens up into the Irish heartland. Travel along country roads dotted with local farms on your way to a photo stop at Fort Charles. Built in the 17th century, this is a classic example of a star-shaped fortress, with its five bastions looming above Kinsale Harbour. Snap a few photos before continuing on to Kinsale, where you’ll enjoy approximately an hour and 15 minutes of free time. Stroll along the harbor. Do a little shopping. Or, pop into a pub for a pint or two. Afterwards, continue along a scenic road that winds high above the River Brandon. Watch this mighty body of water thread its way through a valley dotted with castle ruins on your way back to Cobh.
