Roscoff short break to Cork?

Just in from BF - short breaks in Cork. Out on PA, return on Connemara.

Looks interesting – but we will compare BF's all-in pricing with DIY trip + hotel. Sometimes BF inclusive deals are good value, but not always in our experience.

Any thoughts?

Surely the ferry cost with cabin & car alone would be more expensive than €229?

We don't have a car so I've asked BF for the price without:

Depart 13 Sep, return arr 17 Sep

cabins both ways plus 2 nights Jury's Inn B&B

€790 for two, ie €365pp

Think is though, Ringaskiddy is 10 miles from Cork and if memory serves there's no special shuttle just a public bus service which doesn't run in the mornings after peak hour.

A taxi wouldn't be that expensive I'd have thought and can take them and, more importantly, their bags directly to the B&B as soon as they arrive. Ed.

The 223 bus now appears to run hourly from/to Ringaskiddy village https://www.buseireann.ie/timetables/223-1539871777.pdf

Though depending on where people are staying a taxi as Cabin-boy pointed out would probably be a better option.

Hmmm.  The following link says that foot passengers aren't accepted onto the Connemara:

So I would query this in detail with BF.

Also plus 1 on booking a taxi to meet you.  Ringaskiddy is very isolated if you are on foot.  On a plus note, Jury's Inn (Cork City) is well regarded, has a nice location on the river, and you can walk to all the attractions.

It does indeed but I've just managed to make a dummy booking as a foot passenger between Cork and Roscoff. That above rule might only apply to trips to Spain. I'll have a go at one of those bookings in a moment.

Edit: Yes, in fact it just concerns Spain. There are only vehicle options in the drop down list. No foot passengers or bicycles.
