City Walks, Cork: 4 reviews and 8 photos

During June, July and August there are official walking tours of the city sponsored by Beamish Irish Stout. Whether this is an attempt by Beamish to give Murpy's a run for their money, I'm not sure, but either way they are very popular. Walks leave the City Library on Grand Parade at 8.00pm Monday to Friday. You will visit the historic parts of the city and the places with literary connections.

The really nice thing about these tours is that they end at one of the traditional pubs where you can listen to some trad music and get a free pint of stout.

Cost: 7EUR for a 90 minute walk. Good value and good craic.

Guides are organised by OLGA Cork - Official Local Guiding Association
