We five girls just got our bus tickets and were on our way to the village Blarney. Getting there with the bus number 215 was super easy. Getting tickets for visiting the castle normally is easy too unless you're running late. So make sure you check the opening hours (pay attention to special hours on Sundays) of your point of interest - because we didn't. We made the best out of our situation and took a quick shop in "the largest irish shop in the world"! It's huuuge and has a lot of great things to offer. Definitely worth a visit.
Cork, first lesson learned
Visiting Blarney Castle and it's beautiful gardens not far from Cork City? No sooner said than done.
