Today we depart early morning from Dublin heading south through the County Kildare. Visit the Blarney Castle, built by the McCarthy clan over 600 years ago, still retains its old world charm with its towers, battlements and gated entrance built on a rocky outcrop. Kiss the Blarney stone, situated on the parapets of the castle, to gain the gift of eloquence, that is the ability to persuade people and being able to talk yourself out of trouble. Visit Cork city, a cosmopolitan city with a young population. Maybe have some lunch at the English Market (now with a very international flavour), go marvel at the Gothic St. Finbar's Cathedral, or ring the bells of Shandon at St. Anne's church for a small fee. Cork is home to Murphy's Ale and the Ford Tractor factory. Visit the Rock of Cashel is a multi-period monastic site, which was a fortress before it became the seat of the bishop of the diocese of Cashel. Visit the Great Cathedral, the Hall of Vicars Choral, Cormack's Chapel (with one of Ireland's best preserved Irish frescoes and Romanesque architecture) and a Round tower. Return to Dublin.
