Cork City Tour

This is a City Tour of Cork, with part of the day as a walking tour if you wish! This tour is from 10am-6pm. We also explore the Cork Harbour area and visit some nearby historic towns if you wish. Or we can drive to nice towns on the coast of West Cork if you prefer!

This tour allow you to explore the best of Cork City. Highlights include:
St Finbarres Cathedral

Join me to explore Ireland's second city! Although locally known as the real capital! Many guide books have recommended Cork as a must-see city! Allow me to show you the hidden charm of this busy vibrant city!

If you wish we can also travel out of the city together for part of the day to see the famous Cork harbour, and enjoy the area! We can stop at some local historic towns, and see a little of the beautiful countryside!
We can also visit Blarney Castle if you wish, late in the afternoon when the crowds have gone!


We meet at your hotel/accommodation if it is nearby, or else we can meet at the Train Station!

After that you decide the itinerary! We can visit the many sites of the city together! We can drive all or part of the city tour, or walk if you prefer!

If you wish to have lunch on the way, or just a sandwich, I will point out great places that locals love in the city! If you fancy a drink in a local famous pub, we can do that too!

Outside the city, we can take a drive to Cork Harbour, maybe visit the famous town of Cobh or if you wish we can go to kiss the Blarney Stone at Blarney Castle in the afternoon when all the crowds have gone!

Its your tour, and I am flexible with what we see and do!
