About Cobh (Cork), Ireland

A town of churches, bridges and pubs, Cork is best known for Blarney Castle where you are invited to kiss the famed stone to acquire the "gift of gab." St. Patrick Street, the town's main thoroughfare, is good for shopping and people watching. See the Shandon bells in St. Anne's church. Those who are willing to climb the 134 winding steps to the top of the steeple will be rewarded with a wondrous view of the city, harbor and hills.

What people said about this port:

"purchased bus ticket 7.60 euro/pp roundtrip to blarney castle ( bus 215), which drops you off within walking to..." in 12 reviews.

"...in were horrendous and there was n't time to kiss the blarney stone and do anything else." in 8 reviews.

If you take the Blarney Castle excursion, skip the long line to kiss the stone and explore the gardens instead. We had only two hours there, and those who wanted to kiss the stone spent almost the whole time in line. I am so glad we went through the gardens and wooded trails instead; it was unbelievably beautiful (even on a misty, rainy day) and just what I expected Ireland to be like. I almost expect to see fairies and leprechauns in the mossy glens and leafy trails.

The town of Cobh is nice. The train station is across from the ship. It was very simple to buy a ticket to Cork & there is a train every 30 minutes. It’s a nice little walk around town … a day of leisure. Try the tea and scone at O'Connell’s. Cobh (the port) is fun to check out if you don't want to make the trip to Cork.

Blarney Castle and Mansion were beautiful. It was a glorious day and we spent the whole day exploring the gardens and Castle.

Blarney Castle (and kissing the blarney stone) is a little hokey but the park is beautiful to walk around. The town of Cobh is very pleasant and a trip to the Cathedral is a must.

Had already been in Cork/Blarney so I walked around Cobh; so glad I did! What a great little town with so much history.

Did the excursion to Blarney Castle. Tour was shortened due to tender problem the previous day. It was definitely too short of a tour. Could not even try to "kiss the stone" in the time allotted. The grounds are lovely as well and did not have enough time to fully explore.
