Experience the Rebel City at your own pace with this affordable audio tour

• See where a marshy landscape was transformed into the vibrant city that Cork is today and why the city once had the world’s largest butter exchange
• Hear from producer Máirín Ahern, an honorary Corkonian who’s worked as a qualified tour guide in the city since 1999
• Do it all in an hour or linger at stops along the way with complete control over when you start and finish
• Get unlimited use before your booking date and after it
• Use the virtual tour option at home

Once you’ve booked, you’ll receive a ticket with instructions and a unique code listed under “Before You Go”. Then simply install the VoiceMap app and enter your code.

The app displays directions to the starting point, and when you’re in the right place, just pop in your headphones and tap start. VoiceMap has automatic GPS playback, with turn-by-turn directions. It also works offline.
