Looking at going into Cork for a couple of day tours and know Mallow is close and much more affordable. It also sounds like a nice town to make a base for 3 nights.
Reviews of the B&Bs and hotels very good here but hard to get a sense of location. Have been fooled too many times with the "easy or short walk" phrase that usually has 10 minutes attached to it. Looking for single affordable room likely early May. Any suggestions?
Other question has to do with public transit - looks like frequent bus and train service to Cork. Wondering if I am right about that and also what a taxi would cost?
