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.
