Half-hourly service all day long on weekdays. It would be great to get to that as a regular features one day.

Some of the trains are marked as InterCity (by which I assume 22K), but stopping at all stations to Cobh. While I wouldn't have seen a problem at Cobh itself, nor Little Island or Glounethaune, I'm marginally surprised that they are good at all stations.

At least regional management in Cork seem to be reasonably responsive to demand in Cobh area - cruise ships, that Fota promotion and so on...

Since its totally self contained its possible to run extra trains easily at off peak

I would be surprised if these trains are not jammed
