As your panoramic drive passes Cork Harbour, you’ll see the fine residences that dot the banks where it becomes the River Lee. You’ll then travel eastwards through the fertile farmlands to reach Youghal (pronounced Yawl), a seaport with medieval origins. A stop will be made for photos at this pretty coastal resort, which was chosen as the setting for the film ‘Moby Dick’ in the 1950’s due to its resemblance of a New England fishing port.

Continuing northwards through the Blackwater Valley and West Waterford, you’ll arrive in the heritage town of Lismore. There will be the opportunity to photograph the magnificent Lismore Castle, temporary residence of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, which towers over the Blackwater River. There will be free time in Lismore to shop for souvenirs, relax with a drink or simply absorb the atmosphere of this historic little town.
