Destination Guide: Ireland

The 2019 A-List FAM to Cork and Kerry

Meet in Ireland treated the 2019 A-Listers to yoga, pony trekking and uileann pipes workshops.

The A-Listers flew to Cork airport where they were welcomed by musicians before embarking on the Kinsale Food Tour – a walking meal where they tasted a wide variety of foods and learned about local food history and culture. This was followed by an Irish coffee at The Trident Hotel before the group checked into the nearby five-star Hayfield Manor.

That evening, our A-Listers dined at Greenes restaurant before heading across the road to The Metropole for a jazz experience.

Day two started with a tour of The River Lee Hotel and a two course lunch at Longueville House. After lunch, A-Listers continued on to Killarney where they took part in a discovery challenge with Orangeworks. The group then checked into the five star The Europe Hotel & Resort before a pre-dinner drinks reception with Dingle Gin. Later on, the group were treated to a three course dinner at Quills farmhouse on Muckross Farm where they were greeted by fires pits, lanterns and a Bagpiper.

Day 3 began with activities on the grounds of The Europe including yoga led by Adrian O’Donoghue and pony trekking. The group then had a lovely lunch at Cahernane before flying back home that afternoon.
