Overnight in Cork - Shuttles to/from port in Evening?

Recommended Posts

Our cruise overnights in Cobh/Cork (Aug 22/23).

 

Wondering if Celebrity will have shuttles to/from the port or do we have to rely on the train solely? If they do have shuttles, does anyone know how late they will likely run? We arrive in port at 11:00am, and have an option to go on an afternoon shore tour which would return us to the ship but we would also like to be able to go into Cork for the evening, see the city at night, have a meal/drink and then make our way back to the ship around 10:00pm - 11:00pm. Would be nice if there was a shuttle option of some kind?? 

 

Has anyone had a similar experience that can provide advice? Thanks in advance.

Taxis are pretty expensive from the city but if there was 4 of you to share the cost not to bad. There would be loads of taxis so it would not be difficult.

 

But depending on the day of the week you may have to book a restaurant in advance.

We're on the same cruise.  The ship docks at Cobh and the train station is right at the dock, around the corner of the Heritage building, route 11.  €5 to Cork, half an hour, get off at the Cork (Kent) station.  From there you can walk into Cork about half a mile, or take either the 226 or 226A bus from the train station into the Parnell station in town.  Bus stop is right outside the train station doors.  Schedule is on Irish Rail site.
