We had to get up super early in the morning to catch our bus, and then it was a few hours until we got to our first destination, which was the Rock of Cashel in County Tipperary. The building itself was really something to see in person; absolutely massive in size. The architecture was so impressive, and the little cemetery outside has some really beautiful little headstones and statuaries.
Also amazing to see were the little village below, the surrounding green fields and of course the sheep.
Next stop was Cork. We didn’t stay there for as long as I would have liked to unfortunately. A lot of the time there was spent just getting lunch, which was definitely worth the time. From the short amount of time there I thought that Cork was a lovely little area, with some really nice shops, and really friendly people (like all of Ireland).
Then we drove just outside of Cork to Blarney Castle, which was probably my favourite part of the day, maybe even the whole trip. The castle itself is a feat of architectural genius, and has some really crazy steep and narrow winning staircases that are not for the faint of heart.
The view from the top was gorgeous, but what we were there for was the Blarney stone. I never once thought that I would pay someone to lower me down a hole upside down to kiss a rock, but hey when in Rome.
Outside the castle we also saw the poison garden, which is suspiciously tame looking, and the “Seven Sisters’ Druid rock formation, which was kind of magical to see.
Thank you so much for reading and I hope that you enjoyed day two of my holiday. Come back tomorrow for day three.
Cheers and much love
