We stop in the village of Blarney to give you the chance to kiss the Blarney Stone and receive the "gift of the gab" for 7 years. Situated on the battlements of the famed Blarney Castle you shall have to bend over backwards to kiss the stone!

Historic Cobh is situated on the Cork Harbour. Here we hear stories of the millions of Irish people that emigrated from Cobh between 1840 and 1950. Cobh was also known as Queenstown, renamed when Queen Victoria visited. In 1912 it was the last stop of the RMS Titanic. We will see the Titanic monument in the town center and visit the impressive St Coleman's cathedral. The town also has a monument to remember the sinking of the passenger ship Lusitania, during world war 1 in 1915, which happened close to Cork harbor.
Consider jumping off at Ireland's most famous wildlife park. Situated in Carrigtwohill, County Cork this 70 acre wildlife park is home to 50 bird species and 30 mammals. Many if the animals are free to roam and interact with visitors such as squirrel monkeys, and giraffes which allows these animals to live in a more natural environment.
