Questions & Answers (Jogging - Walking Tours Of Cork)

What exactly is a City Jogging Irish Tour?

It is a guided sightseeing tour of the city that takes place on the run. If jogging is not for you we also do a slightly shorter walking tour of the city. Its great fun (craic) and a unique and interesting way to get to know the city. You may choose to join us on one of our specially designed Tours or contact us to custom-design your very own Tour.

How do I sign-up and pay for a City Jogging Irish Tour?

To purchase tickets, first contact us to check availability for your chosen tour before  proceeding to the sign-up page, allowing (where possible) at least 12 hours advance booking to ensure availability. The sign-up process is quick and easy and you pay via paypal or on the day. For all special requests, please also contact us prior to booking, for information and a quote.

How much does a tour cost?

Tours are €10.00 each. Children under 12 are €5 each.

How do I book and pay for my tour?

Simply fill in the Booking form in the Bookings page and you can either pay on the day of the tour or we will send you a PayPal Email payment request. We use PayPal Email Payments for a quick and secure way to request payment from you and accept credit cards/debit cards and also PayPal payments online for those who have PayPal accounts already set up. However, you don’t need a PayPal account— you can click on the link in our email confirming the booking and pay with your credit card/debit card. However to enable a refund to be made you need a PayPal account. After receipt of the payment, we will send you a confirmation e-mail of the run date and other useful information.

Do I have to book a City Jogging Irish Tour in advance?

Yes, we ask for at least 12 hours’ notice for our Scheduled Tours and Customised Tours. If less notice is given, we will do our very best to arrange a tour for you, simply contact us as soon as you are able.

I've just arrived in the city and have not pre-booked a tour, can I just turn up for a Scheduled Tour at the meeting point?

If you have just arrived in the city and would like to join us ASAP for one of our Scheduled Tours but you have not had time to book 12 hours in advance, don't worry! Simply contact us as soon as you can and we will advise you of availability.

Do I need to sign a disclaimer?

Yes, before the start of your Tour you will be required to tick a box in our Bookings page indicating acceptance of our Terms and Conditions which include a disclaimer. This is because the tours take place near traffic and busy roads and involve physical activity, which can be hazardous.

How fit do I need to be?

While you do not need to be very fit as the distances are relatively short, you do need to be confident that you can walk or jog the tour distance in comfort. The emphasis is on having fun, not tiring you out.

What do I need to wear?

This will depend on the weather on the day. Comfortable pair or runners are essential.

Are we walking-running the whole time?

Our customised tours are based on your preference; we can design your tour so there are no stops. However we are always willing to stop for a breather if necessary. Our group runs are designed with designated stops throughout the route. This way we make sure everyone stays together and gets to hear all the information along the route.

What pace do you jog at?

Each tour will be tailored to the needs of the group on the day. The emphasis is on having fun and learning about the history and culture of the city. We have not lost anybody yet!!!

What if I'm on my own?

Don’t be concerned as walking or jogging with City Jogging Irish Tours is an excellent way to meet people. You are more than likely on a tour with likeminded people so this is a great way to meet new people who are all alone in the city.

What do I need to bring?

A positive attitude, some water if you get thirsty easily, a large smile on your face and suitable clothing.

What if I want to cancel my booking?

We offer a full refund on cancellations made at least 12 hrs before the start of your Tour. Simply call us or email us within the required notice period and we will refund you using your original method of payment. Unfortunately no refunds can be given for cancellations made with less than 12 hours’ notice, but please contact us as soon as you can and we will, where possible, offer you an alternative day on a Scheduled Tour.

Are there any age restrictions?

If you are under 16 years you must be accompanied by an adult.

Can I join a group?

Yes of course, just tell us this within your booking form on the Bookings page. We will then try to if possible arrange to include you into a group. This saves you money with the cheaper group rates.

Is there a place to leave my valuables?

All our guides carry a backpack but space is limited so please bring no more than the essentials (wallet and keys should be all you need).

What happens in rain and extreme weather?

You will get wet, it’s Ireland after all!! Tours will run whatever the weather, except in the most extreme circumstances. If a tour has to be cancelled we would email or call all participants (if a telephone number has been provided) as soon as possible.

What if the tour does not appeal to me?

Have a look at the Custom Tour option. For a small extra fee we will meet you at your hotel or other point of interest and customise a tour just for you and your group.

What if the tour I want to do isn't running on a particular day?

Please call\mail us, we are flexible and will try to come to an arrangement that is suitable to you.
