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.

A very poor standard of service, driving, navigation, and comfort. The driver was forever slamming on the brakes of the bus, when he wasn't driving too fast for us to be able to take good photographs. This made it quite uncomfortable to be able to...More
