About
Céad Míle Fáilte A Hundred Thousand Welcomes! Welcome to Cork City Walks. We look forward to meeting you on one of our friendly, informative, leisurely walks around our beautiful and charming city. We encourage interaction and banter as we seek to share with you our love of Cork, its unique history, friendly people, colourful culture and Corkonian wit and traditions. We will take you on a leisurely walk around the compact 800 year old city, where you will experience the smells and sounds of the English Market, stroll the busy lanes of the 18th century Huguenot Quarter and wonder at Burges’s magnificent French Neo-Gothic cathedral. Mindful that a healthy walk generates a good appetite, we will help you discover a variety of places to eat, drink, enjoy live music (ceol agus craic) and enjoy the best entertainment Cork has to offer during your visit. At journey’s end our wish will be that we have lived up to your expectations and that when you return home you will encourage family
Cork, County Cork, Ireland

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We organised with Jac Sheill to provide us with a unique and somewhat different insight into Cork city and it’s intriguing past as we had been on previous Walks within Cork city itself. Jack provided a wonderful change of scenery for us that was historically intriguing with the follow-up events and visitations that we could continue on with over our time in Cork city itself. He’s informative and clever insight was refreshing and welcoming. A big thank you Jack from Josey and Max.

We had a wonderful tour with Jack. He walked my wife and I throughout City Cork engaging us with the history and stories of this enchanting city. We ended in the English Market with tastings of seafood and cheese. It was a fabulous experience.

Helena Nugent was our guide for the Highlights of Cork in a half day walking tour. Our party of 4 met at the Hotel Metropole in downtown Cork. We walked to Saint Patricks bridge, Helene summarized the history of Cork as we walked. ducked into the local museum to see some incredible sculptures. We toured the English market and enjoyed the story about Queen Elizabeth's visit there. We learned about Saint Fin Barre's Cathedral and it's connections with the Masons, also took some amazing pictures.
We took a much needed break for coffee and when the tour was over Helene directed us to a local pub for late lunch. Helena was very informed, knew the answers to all our questions and a delight to be with. This tour was excellent.

Such a lovely morning in the company of a learned, fun and interesting guide. In spite of knowing a bit of the city’s heritage, we learned a huge amount in a short space of time. Meandering walk around the city with plenty of stops to catch up on the history & current plans for the place, made for a tour which will remain with us forever more. Thank you Jack x

As part of my work, we welcome many international visitors to Cork throughout the year. I have booked this tour multiple times and each times our visitors thoroughly enjoy the experience, each tour guide is so knowledgeable and has a real passion for the city and its history. I too have taken this tour many times along with our visitors and although I'm from Cork all my life I learn something new each time!

Absolutely wonderful and charming walking tour with Bart.

Myself, my wife and mother in law had the most wonderful few hours with Bart hitting the streets of Cork learning all about its fascinating history from the Vikings through to the Revolution and Independence.

The blustery weather didn’t stop Bart (a highly intelligent, engaging and sincere tour guide) from imbuing the three of us with his intricate knowledge of the city and how it went from marshy islands to the lively Rebel county of the 20th century.

We learnt about architecture, town planning, wars and revolution and the local commerce. In fact, we learnt so much I needed a lie down afterwords!!! You can definitely tell Bart must have been a charismatic and erudite teacher in his past life.

To top it all off, he kindly finished our tour off with a beautiful tasting menu in the English market and a lovely Corkonian goodbye.

We’ll definitely try to arrange another tour with Bart next time we are in town visiting family.

You should most definitely book yourself in a tour with these guys!

Bart gave us so much interesting information about the history (and current day) of Cork! He also took several pictures of our family (and sent them to us immediately following our tour) in memorable locations. We had an excellent tasting experience in the English Market to conclude our tour, where Bart introduced us to several vendor/friends. Thanks, Bart, for a marvelous walking tour of Cork!!!

We were anticipating about an hour-long walk. Jack walked with us all over the city for two and a half hours and filled our heads with the wonderful history of the city, stories and anecdotes; made suggestions and recommendations for other things we might want do, see, eat, drink, etc. My husband and I have taken walking tours all over the world; this definitely ranks as one of the best and most interesting. Thanks, Jack!

Had an amazing day with Bart. He was so engaging and very informative. Best tour we've had in years.
Definitely ask for the English Market tasting tour. Everything was delicious.
You will be glad you went!
