We called in on Sat 5th November around midday and found the most helpful and knowledgeable tourist information officer on duty.

Thanks to him, we found 'Henchey's' a great pub with live music, around the corner from our hotel, a good... More

There is a wealth of information to be found here, most of it free, and the staff are friendly and helpful. There is a computer screen where you can easily find all you need to know about places to visit and how far away something is.

Ever since we came home I keep telling everyone how hiring Paul from Cork Airport Taxi was the best decision I ever made. We originally contacted him to take us on a little tour of Cork, but after a couple emails decided to have him pick us up in Killarney and drive us down through Bantry, Mizen Head, Dromberg Stone...

We bought the Ring of Kerry Tour here. We were lucky no one else was in the office so we didn't have to wait and was in and out in about 15 minutes. The woman who helped us was nice but she really didn't know anything about the tour we wanted but she was great and called the tour company... More

A big tourist information centre, with lots of free booklets. You will find everything you need to know about the country you are going to visit.

Admittedly we entered as it opened first thing on a Monday morning and an American tourist was enquiring about driving directions to Dublin and staff gave him minimum of information which annoyed me as I could have been more helpful but alas he shot off and I could not assist.It never used to be like this here.

Of stuck for places to visit or want free Brochures, advice, directions--they do it all with a smile. I went back each day, as the hop on hop off bus stop is right in front.
