Day 04, Monday: Cork - Cobh - Blarney - Killarney
Morning visit to Cobh Heritage Center, which documents the history of Irish emigration and the story of the ill-fated superliners--the Lusitania and the Belfast-built Titanic.

Day 05, Tuesday: Ring of Kerry - Killarney
Today, we depart on one of Ireland's most popular and beautiful drives, the Ring of Kerry. Traveling from Killarney we come to the town of Killorglin, famous for "Puck Fair," and from here we commence the ring tour. Our drive is along the coastline of the broad Iveragh Peninsula, through the towns of Glenbeigh, Cahirciveen, Waterville and Sneem. The scenery is spectacular as wind-swept cliffs, still lakes, lost valleys and rocky mountains blend in awesome beauty. As one looks around it is easy to agree with the old Irish saying, "Even if a man has only a small bit of earth here, he has a lot of the heavens." From Sneem, we continue via "Ladies View" back to Killarney. Dinner and overnight at our Killarney hotel.
