Nice way to travel around Cork hearing the history and seeing the sights. Buses run frequently so no long waits. Hop on and off at will. We used this as transportation to go to Butter Museum and Cork City Gaol (reviews separately). Very reasonable rates.

Not the best! Bus was old, traffic horrendous....... Information was not following bus location. Better to walk.

We had a woman driver, a veteran of 19 years of driving, who gave her comments along with the recorded commentary to add to our enjoyment. I’m very impressed with her driving—the bus route goes through narrow streets with tight turns and heavy traffic. At...More

Recommend this as one of the first things to do on arrival in Cork: you can get a feel for places you'd like to return to at a later date. Plenty of helpful historical information, without overload. We used a two-day pass, hopping on and...More
