Cork Tours from Dublin

Cork Tours from Dublin

Ireland’s second city, Cork is a cultural hub famous for its historic landmarks and Georgian architecture. Whether you’re checking off the sights on a day trip or stopping through on a tour of southern Ireland, here’s how to visit Cork from Dublin.

Cork and Blarney Castle Combo Tours

Most day tours to Cork from Dublin include a visit to the area’s star attraction, Blarney Castle, located just outside the city. In addition to touring the castle and getting the chance to kiss the legendary Blarney Stone, you’ll have free time to explore Cork city and make stops at nearby attractions such as the Rock of Cashel in County Tipperary.

Rail Tours

Rail tours offer the quickest way to get to Cork from Dublin—it’s only a 2.5-hour train journey between the two cities, and you can purchase drinks and meals onboard. Most tours are accompanied by a guide the whole way and include visits to various top attractions such as Blarney Castle and Cobh.

Multi-Day Tours

Cork is the gateway to south Ireland, and a multi-day tour means you can take in more of the region’s highlights. Opt for a 3-, 4- or 6-day tour by rail or coach from Dublin, and drive the famous Ring of Kerry, visit towns such as Limerick and Dingle, or head up the west coast to Galway, the Cliffs of Moher, or Connemara. Most multi-day tours include hotel accommodation, meals, and roundtrip transport.

Things to Know

  • Cork is 156 miles (252 km) southwest of Dublin, or about a three-hour drive.

  • Day tours from Dublin typically last about 12 hours given the travel times, so prepare for a long trip.

  • Be sure to bring your camera, seasonal clothing, and water and snacks for the journey.

  • Some tours provide hotel pickup, lunch, and entrance fees.
