Very good value well worth doing. Travel round Cobh in a fun and informative way. Lots of history given by the driver in an interesting, humorous way. Wonderful way to see and learn about the island. A great way to spend an hour. Thoroughly enjoyed the slow pace it travels with information at every turn.

When there take the train ride around the town and see and hear from a very witty tour guide all the history of Cobh and Cork. This was the last... More
