Cork, Ireland's second-largest city (or the "real capital" of Ireland, as the inhabitants like to call it) is your first destination today. Criss-crossing the city's bridges, a panoramic drive takes you past St Fin Barre's Gothic Cathedral, the medieval Old Town, the University, City Hall and Shandon Bells.
Then, journey outside the city to Midleton, for a stop at the Jameson Experience. A guided tour of the Jameson Whiskey distillery takes you to the heart of cherished whiskey-making tradition in a beautifully restored 18th-century industrial complex. Don't miss the compelling audio-visual presentation and a tasting session where a few lucky volunteers get to taste and comment on the finished product. Relax in the atmosphere of a traditional Irish pub with your own glass of Ireland's finest whiskey; then, visit the souvenir store for a little shopping.
Wear comfortable shoes, as there is gravel and some inclined surfaces on the grounds of the distillery. The amount of walking at distillery is at each guest's discretion.
