Soak up the sights in the beautiful countryside and visit the charming town of Kinsale on this easy-going, accessible experience.

Sit back, relax and enjoy the stunning views as you drive though one of Ireland’s prettiest regions – home to lush valleys and an idyllic coastline. Simply gaze out the window to admire the rolling fields, bright flowers and flowing rivers as you journey through rural areas and postcard-perfect villages. 

Pause to photograph the wonderful views over the River Bandon before you arrive in the historic fishing port, Kinsale. Here, you’ll have some free time to explore the characterful town, dotted with 18th-century architecture as well as Georgian and Dutch-influenced architecture. Feel free to treat yourself to a drink or snack from one of the many cafés or pubs before you head back to Cobh via a photo stop Charles Fort, which offers a spectacular vista of Kinsale Harbour.
