Middleton, Co Cork
A guided tour of the Jameston Distillery
Jameson Irish Whiskey is world renowned and its history can be traced on guided tours through any of the Irish Whiskey Visitors Centres. Each visit to Middleton Distillery culminates in the Jameson Bar with the Irish Whiskey tasting session when you may have the opportunity of becoming a qualified Irish Whiskey Taster with a presentation diploma!
Then relax in the Centre's elegant restaurant specialising in country farmhouse fare or perhaps browse through the equally elegant gift and craft shop.
Cobh, Co Cork
St Colman’s Cathedral
A visit to Cobh Cathedral is a moving spiritual experience. The gothic grandeur of the interior, the delicate carvings, the beautiful arches and the mellow lighting combine to lift the human spirit. The carvings recall the history of the Church in Ireland from the time of St. Patrick to the present century. It is the story of our faith earthed in the story of our people.
