(video) Destination: Cork, Ireland

Panoramic City Tour: Cork, Ireland

Calling on the port town of Cobh, Ireland, cruise visitors arriving on Azamara Club Cruises had a few options for exploring the area. I chose a Land Discoveries tour offered by the ship to explore the nearby city of Cork.

Setting off from  Ireland’s only dedicated cruise terminal in  Cobh, we took a ride through the surrounding countryside off the south coast of County Cork, Ireland.

Although it was rainy and the view of the countryside between Cobh and Cork was hard see through the rain droplets on the windows, the ride was pleasant enough.

My favorite part of the tour was learning about the architecture, like the Gothic inspired St. Finbarr’s Cathedral and the University.

The town itself is quite compact, which great for people wanting to get a quick orientation to the area. Now when I go back to Cork, Ireland I will have a better understanding about what I would want to do on future visits.
