Despite Cork CC's claims of an "ample carpark", we could not find a space. Three were about 20 campervans taking up car parking spaces - really they should have there own special park. So, after a tedious 2 hour drive to get there (with 4...More

We came here on a dull and misty rainy day in Cork (a common occurrence unfortunately) but the group were adamant they wanted to go on the cable car, (well 7 out of the 10) and as luck would have it 6/7 is the maximum...More
