Day 1

Blarney Castle, Cóbh & the Titanic Story

Enjoy your full Irish breakfast at your leisure and we will pick you up from your hotel at 09:20am at the hotel reception.


We transfer to Cork Kent train station where we meet our group arriving from Dublin and transfer to our Railtours Ireland tour coach. We journey through Cork City en route to Blarney Village and historic Blarney Castle & Gardens, built in 1446 by Dermot McCarthy. You will have time to kiss the famous stone, which is said to bestow the gift of eternal eloquence on those lucky enough to do so. There is also time for shopping and lunch at Blarney and we recommend that you have lunch here, as this will be the only opportunity during the day to have a substantial meal.


As we depart Blarney Castle for Cóbh, via the city centre, we have a short city tour.


On arrival at Cóbh we will visit St. Colman’s Cathedral. We will then proceed down along the sea front passing the former White Star Line offices en route to the beautifully restored Victorian railway station/transatlantic terminal. This is now the Cóbh Heritage Centre, home to the Queenstown Story.


The centre also houses much information about the Great Famine and the subsequent Irish Emigration; 3 million Irish people emigrated from Cóbh (principally to the United States), including Annie Moore, whose statue is located in front of the heritage centre.


We depart Cóbh by train to return to Dublin.


We arrive back to Dublin Heuston Station at 20:00hrs.
