Not the best start to our cruise. Driver for “Sausmarez Manor” and Little Chapel excursion had trouble talking. (Uhh, uhh, uhh). Tour a bit rushed, but still good. It was still a decent value. Tender was over capacity. Significant wait times.

Cobh (Cork), Ireland

Tour shorted due to shorter port time, but received partial refund automatically so still pleased.

Dublin, Ireland
