A great way to start exploring Cork ! With a relatively small group ( 8 ), Filip was able to provide a very personable tour, flexing the schedule when needed. The mix of historic and quirky facts kept the group entertained, and the brief pub stop for ‘pub quiz’ was a first for me on one of these tours … and a great addition it was ! A all round great experience !
