Our Story

"Book directly with Butlers - Book with confidence"

Greetings from our hometown of Cobh in Cork!

My name is Ian Butler and together with my brother Kevin we run Butlers Tours.

Our Dad set up our business way back in 1967 and we have been a family business based right here in Cobh (pronounced Cove) ever since.

Our depot is just 1 mile from where your ship docks.

With your limited time in port, it is imperative that you make the absolute most of your visit to Cobh/Cork and nobody loves to show off our beautiful and historic town and county like we do.

Kevin and Ian Cobh

For many years we have offered private shore tours to cruisers visiting Cobh/Cork but for the past 19 years we have been offering our own scheduled tours where you can easily book your seats and join us on one of our exciting trips.

Our scheduled shore tours started out under the name of eCoach but are now better known as Butlers Shore Tours.

Our aim has always been to give you the best excursion of your entire cruise at an attractive price!

We have our own fleet of luxury tour vehicles operated by our own team of experienced local driver/guides. Many tour providers do not including of course the shore excursions offered by your your ship.
