Leaving Cobh we head southwest to the county of Kerry better known in Ireland as ‘The Kingdom’! We pass through the town of Macroom and then Ballyvourney which is a Gaeltacht village allowing you to experience an area where our native language is spoken fluently. We cross the Cork and Kerry Mountains where the scenery is simply breath-taking and continue on to Kenmare a beautiful market town in the southwest of Ireland, well known for its colourful streets and friendly locals. Here we stop for a coffee or maybe even something stronger.

We take the Mountain route for our first photo stop at ‘Molls Gap’ nestled in the McGillycuddy Reeks with the highest mountain in Ireland ‘Carrantuohill’ by our side. On then to The Country Park in Killarney and we stop again at ‘Ladies View’, this is where we first get to view the spectacular Lakes of Killarney and from such an elevated point this is a photo opportunity not to be missed. On then to The Country Park through the winding roads which bring us down to The Lakes of Killarney through a corridor of Oak, Ash and beech trees where we arrive at ‘Torc Waterfall’ this is 18 metres high and definitely one for the camera. Then we visit ‘Muckross House’ and gardens the once residence of Lord Kenmare, the house and gardens are very well maintained and definitely worth a visit. Just in time then for lunch in Killarney which was voted the number one town to visit in Ireland 2014.

Leaving the ship in Cobh we would head directly to Blarney Castle getting ahead of the crowds to avoid long queues at this very popular site, this is important if you wish to kiss the Blarney stone which is said locally to give you the ‘gift of the gab’ or more appropriately the ‘gift of eloquent speech’.

The castle itself was built more than six hundred years ago and home of the McCarthy Clan, with its beautiful gardens and lake a must see on a visit to Cork.

From Blarney we would head for Cork city known locally as ‘The real Capital of Ireland’, the river Lee flows through Cork dividing the city into North & South and the Port of Cork meets the Atlantic Ocean at Cobh. The people of Cork may be difficult to understand as it is said we sing our words rather than speak them, a very hilly city steeped in history, beautiful Cathedrals and lime stone buildings fast becoming a very cosmopolitan place. Cork is also the second deepest natural port in the world, Sydney being the first. Key attractions in Cork would be St Finbarr’s Cathedral and the English Market.


From Cork we would head to the port town of Kinsale otherwise known as the ‘Gourmet capital of Ireland’ famous for its wonderful restaurants and many festivals during the year. On arriving in Kinsale we would come in from an elevated site looking over the town at Charles Fort, a five stared fort famous for its defence of the coastline during the Spanish Armada of 1601, with beautiful panoramic views over the town, the Marina and the multi coloured houses and shops. There is a lot of Spanish influence in the town itself associated with the Armada, the names of the pubs for example, ‘The Spaniard’, ‘The 1601’, ‘The Bulman’ and many more waiting to be explored! It is a real picturesque town in the south west of Ireland and the start of ‘The Wild Atlantic Way’ route.
