From the ship, travel north to County Tipperary. Tipperary is Ireland’s largest inland county, with richly varied, breathtaking scenery of hills, mountains, plains, and river valleys. Drive to Cashel and visit the rock that bears its name. The Rock of Cashel is an impressive pre-Christian settlement and the royal seat of the Kings of Munster from the 4th century AD. You will then have some free time in Cashel. Lunch will be served at a restaurant located beside the impressive rock. Then travel to Cahir, located on the River Suir. Cahir Castle, which dates back to the 15th century, was a stronghold of the powerful local Anglo-Norman Butler family and the dukes and earls of Ormond. The huge walls enclose three separate “wards”: the outer, middle and inner. The inner ward is guarded by a gate with a medieval portcullis. Rooms in the keep are whitewashed and contain armor displays and furnishings from the 16th and 17th centuries. Return to Cobh via the picturesque Vee Road, Lismore, Tallow and Midleton.
