parnell place bus station

The Cork City Ladies Shopping Tour will kick off with meeting up with your assigned Cork local tour guide in the Cork city centre at the Parnell Place bus station at 10:00am.  From there, you will then proceed into town on foot with your tour guide stopping off at Penney’s Department Store.

If there are certain or specific items you are in search of, please inform your tour guide upon meeting up so she will then know exactly where to take you to find that or those items.  Many tourists who are not with a tour guide tend to wander about the city centre and do not have a clue what many of the store sell or have to offer.  This ends up not being a good utilization of time, especially if your time or stop in Cork, Ireland is limited.
