This was a wonderful way to see the main sights of Cobh and learn some interesting facts as well. We had lovely weather which made the tour even more enjoyable. Our driver was friendly, knowledgeable and "by God" he knew how to entertain! Loved it!

Really close! As you walk out of the cruise port and walk down to the town you'll see it there. It'll only take you a couple of minutes. We rode it back in September of last year and thoroughly enjoyed it!
