About

About Your Trip:

This DreamTrip to Cork, Ireland, invites you to explore the Emerald Isle’s history and unforgettable scenery. Begin with a welcome reception at the hotel before the next day’s adventures. Take a short drive to Blarney Castle and enjoy the picturesque scenery of Ireland’s rolling hills and 40 shades of green along the way. After a tour of the 15th-century castle and legendary Blarney Stone, venture to the castle grounds to view different flora at the Fern Garden, Irish Garden, Poison Garden and more. Grab some souvenirs at Blarney Woollen Mills and return to Cork for an afternoon at your leisure.

What we love:
• Cork’s nickname is “The Rebel County” due to its role in the Irish War of Independence and Irish Civil War.
• Kiss the Blarney Stone at Blarney Castle to get the “gift of gab” and improve your eloquence, according to local legends.
• Cork’s famous churches are St. Mary’s Cathedral and St. Fin Barre’s Cathedral, which have stood proudly since the 1800s.
This trip will close by January 13.
