Embark on an enchanting journey with our Student Ambassador, Lerong Dong, as she discovers the breathtaking beauty of Cork’s coastline.

The medieval Blarney Castle is one of the most impressive castles in Ireland and a great place for Cork’s day. Kiss the famous Blarney stone to make it eloquent, and see rare plants in the charming garden. The castle in autumn has splendid scenery, with different plants presenting beautiful colors. Choose a good weather to stroll with friends in the castle for a day, and pass by a farm with flocks of sheep and horses and a peaceful lake. 

Old Head of Kinsale 

Kinsale’s Old Head Signal Tower is the southernmost point of the stunning Wild Atlantic Road, making it a great place for Cork’s day trip. The rugged terrain and stunning views of the Old Head lighthouse provide you with an excellent opportunity to appreciate the iconic discovery points of the Wild Atlantic Road. Besides the cliffs, Kinsale town is also very worth visiting. The colorful houses and streets make people feel happy, and there are many Michelin restaurants to choose.


Fountainstown Beach

Fountainstown Beach is ideally located in Fountainstown, County Cork. It boasts being one of the nearest beaches to Cork City. On the way to the beach by bus, you can see colorful sailboats sailing on the lake outside the window. Walking from this beach to Crosshaven town is also an excellent choice for hiking. Finally, end a wonderful day at the port with a serving of fish and chips. 

Lerong Dong is studying Children’s Right and Family Law at UCC via Education in Ireland.
