Coach from the airport departed 15 min late so I was at the meeting point about 11:15 am and The sight seeing bust departing at 11:30 am. I was told by booking officer that bus left already as she said should be there 30 min early . How ever I received a voucher for other trip was for Blarney , Cobh etc. Tour guide was excellent he even managed well with timing and dropped nearest to bus station to go Cork airport as I was leaving same day. I absolutely enjoy his very enjoyable knowledge and sense of humour about what he covered for trip. I also very much appreciated with tour officer as she was very kind and gave me complementary ticket.

Exactly what we needed, they drop you off at the Blarney Castle, then you have 2 hours to look at the Castle at your own speed. After that you will be dropped off at Cobh, you also have 2 hours here in this city. After the two stops, you can decide, if you want to go to the National Park, the Jameson Destillery or go back to Cork. The transfer were easy and always on time. The guide we had, was very kind and funny. i can totaly recommend this tour
