Travel along the shores of Cork Harbour by coach to the charming university city of Cork. Your guide will provide an interesting commentary and point out the local landmarks as you drive past the French Quarter, English Market, Father Matthew's statue and Bishop Lucey Park. You’ll hear about the local history as you pass by the Old Courthouse, the impressive limestone City Hall, the renowned Bells of Shandon, and the magnificent Gothic style St. Fin Barre's Cathedral.

Leaving the city, travel to the village of Midleton, where the famous rare Irish whiskey gets its name. A visit to the Jameson Experience will take you right to the heart of the cherished whiskey making tradition. There will be an hour-long guided tour of this beautifully restored 18th century self-contained industrial complex, unique in Britain and Ireland. There is a fully operational water wheel and a 32,000 gallon copper pot still, which is the largest in the world. Enjoy an audio-visual presentation which will breathe life into the Irish whiskey legend.

After the tour there will be the opportunity to sample a glass of whiskey whilst you relax in the atmosphere of a traditional Irish pub.
