A vibrant and cosmopolitan city

The beautiful
People’s Republic of Cork

Situated on the south coast of Ireland, Cork is the largest county in Ireland, fiercely proud of its rich heritage, and considered to be one of the most breathtakingly beautiful parts of the Wild Atlantic Way. In parts, it is totally wild and untouched by modern life, yet its capital, Cork City, is as vibrant and cosmopolitan a city as any in Europe.

To gain a true understanding and appreciation of the fabric of Cork and its people, we have curated a range of authentic Cork experiences, city tours and daytrips from Cork, which are designed to showcase the stunning scenery, fascinating heritage and distinct character of the county.

Guided Tours

Experiences in
Cork City & Beyond

There is no shortage of things to do in Cork: choose from walking and history tours of Cork City, a guided hop-on hop-off sightseeing tour, Cork City ghost tour and a guided kayak along the River Lee, all of which are designed to offer a unique perspective of Ireland’s second-largest city.

Venture beyond Cork City, however, and you will be rewarded with some truly unforgettable sights and experiences. Our most popular small group tours of Cork include a guided visit to the notorious Spike Island a fully immersive day trip to Mizen Head, Ireland’s most south-westerly point; and a trip out to Fastnet Rock, the famous ‘teardrop of Ireland’.
