Tuesday Morning Excursions 

On Tuesday 29th August, there will be an option to attend one of two excursions. Please find the options below. 

Blarney Castle and Gardens Visit

Built nearly six hundred years ago by one of Ireland’s greatest chieftans, Cormac MacCarthy, and has been attracting attention ever since. Over the last few hundred years, millions have flocked to Blarney making it a world landmark and one of Ireland’s greatest treasures.

Now that might have something to do with the Blarney Stone, the legendary Stone of Eloquence, found at the top of our tower. Kiss it and you’ll never again be lost for words.

The cost of your ticket includes entrance to the grounds as well as transport from UCC to Blarney Castle and back to UCC. This excursion will leave at 9:30am and arrive back to UCC for 1pm on Tuesday 29th August. 

Cork City Gaol (Jail) Guided Tour

Cork is a city with a very rich historical and archaeological heritage much of it still in evidence today. Part of this heritage, Cork City Gaol, is a magnificent castle-like building which once housed 19th century prisoners. Take a trip back in time and wander through the wings of the Gaol, accompanied by the shuffling feet of inmates and the jingle of the warders’ keys.

The cost of your ticket includes a guided tour of the jail and guide book (comes in a number of languages). Cork City Jail is just a short walk from UCC (approx. 15-20 minutes) so this tour group will leave UCC on foot at 9:30am and arrive back to UCC for 1pm on Tuesday 29th August.
