I did this tour during a day on the hop on/ hop off bus, and it was perfect! They give you cassette players to walk around with, so that you can do the tour at your own pace. The jail is well kept and the grounds are beautiful, and it's just a very cool atmosphere to see. Slightly eerie but that adds to the fun :). I really like this tour and would recommend it to anyone passing through Cork. It was definitely my favorite tourist attraction in Cork city.
