Visited here while on the way to another location. It is a good place to be able to say one has visited in the interests of the history of the country.

Unfortunately no bus passes the route that I’m aware of. From Cork City it wouldn’t be that far of a taxi ride but it’d be still 15-20 mins beyond the edge of the city.
