One of our standard things to do when going to a new city. See where everything is and get off when whenever we have a stop. Get back on the next bus when you are finished.

Cork City is quite compact with most attractions being in easy walking distance so this 75 minute trip was rather superfluous as well as being over-priced. It didn't help that the commentary was so distorted as to be unintelligible.

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.
