From Cork: Guided Full-Day West Cork to Mizen Head Tour

1. From Cork: Guided Full-Day West Cork to Mizen Head Tour

Immerse yourself in Irish culture on this day trip filled with fantastic photo opportunities. Starting in the historic city of Cork, travel by coach to Ireland’s most southwesterly point and view the dramatic cliff scenery of Mizen Head. As you drive through picturesque villages and towns, expect to see some awe-inspiring scenery as Ireland shows off its spectacular landscape. From the meeting point in Cork, travel first to Gougane Barra, home to Ireland's oldest National Forest Park and famous for St. Finbarr's Oratory, its stunning 19th-century church. Enjoy panoramic views of where the River Lee rises. Then, wander through Bantry, one of West Cork's most vibrant market towns, and do some shopping or sit down to a traditional cup of Irish tea and perhaps a scone. The next part of the journey takes you to Mizen Head, Ireland’s most southwesterly point — the edge of Europe and a signature key discovery point on the Wild Atlantic Way. Admire the cliffs of Mizen Head that rise high above the Atlantic Ocean, where the currents meet and the waves from the Atlantic crash into land. Before returning to Cork city, discover Clonakilty, an iconic Irish town. Visit a museum, an Irish pub for a pint of Murphy's, or simply wander the colorful streets. You'll return to the city of Cork in the evening, where you'll be dropped off at the original meeting point.

Make your way to the Burren which is one of the most popular landscapes in Ireland, famous for its Limestone Rock that stretches as far as the eye can see, reaching down to the sea shore. Before reaching the Cliffs of Moher, pause for lunch in the small village of Doolin with continuous views of Doolin Harbour and the Aran Islands.

What people are saying about County Donegal

The tour started early in the morning, in front of the office. John picked us up and drove us ro our first locations. He told funny stories and made us laugh. Then we had to change the bus, to get on the two day thing and met Dan. He told us a lot about the history and drove us around all the sightseeings. We stayed at a hostel in Dingle. An ols Classic Hostel, can be a bit cold in the winter days. All in All it was Amazing and I would recommend this Tour! You see a lot in two days and you can enjoy you time in a small bus!

Had two fantastic days. Both the cliffs of mohair and the ring of Kerry are a must when in Ireland. If you are a bit older, the hostel is not recommended. We had Neill as driver and guide who made this experience extra special for us with his humor, sociability and attention. It was really GREAT!!

The entire trip was amazing! I have met great people on the trip and everyone was very considerate of each other. Our drivers are amazing and we felt right at home with our hosts in Dingle. It is definitely a great way to explore the Atlantic.

As someone who's never driven on the other side of the road this was the perfect way to see Ireland!

Very good! It was with a van, there were about 8 people, it was very good!
