One of our standard things to do when going to a new city. See where everything is and get off when whenever we have a stop. Get back on the next bus when you are finished.

Cork City is quite compact with most attractions being in easy walking distance so this 75 minute trip was rather superfluous as well as being over-priced. It didn't help that the commentary was so distorted as to be unintelligible.

A nice route that takes in all the sites, but the commentary was very basic, even condescending. Driver sounded bored relaying the bits they spoke themselves. €15 a bit steep also. Could have been so much better.

We travelled with 3 young children and they all had a great time. The tour was the perfect length and the facts about the city were extremely interesting. Definitely worth a hop on.

A fantastic way to see the sights of Cork. The trip takes about an hour, we always do a complete circle first than go back for hop on hop off experience. The traffic in the city can get busy and some delays.

The drivwers were friendly and helpful and their driving to a high standard. The recorded commentary was played in time with what was being talked about.

You can buy tickets on any bus. We caught the bus right by the English Market.
