This delightful tour is designed for passengers who prefer to see sights from a motor coach, with little or no walking involved. Your laid-back half-day tour starts when you meet your friendly guide and driver at the pier. From there, you will travel alongside the beautiful River Lee, which flows through two main channels around Cork — a bustling town that you will enjoy viewing from your cozy seat. After driving through Cork, you will continue on through the Lee River Valley, enjoying the informative commentary from your guide as you make your way to the village of Blarney. This charming village was established in the 18th century as a place for the estate workers to live. Upon your arrival in Blarney, you will visit a local venue and be given the opportunity to sample some delicious, Irish coffee. Next you'll stroll a short distance to the Blarney Woolen Mill shop, a favorite of many visitors who like to purchase high-quality, Irish goods such as knitwear, Irish linen, Donegal tweeds and Celtic brooches. This shop also has one of the largest displays of Waterford Crystal in the world. Afterwards, you'll be able to sit back and enjoy the views of the lush Irish countryside, as you make your way back to the ship.
