You can try guideadvisor.com and-or maybe ask on the TripAdvisor Cruise Forum from other cruisers.

Where you are berthing is absolutely critical. There are three possibilities

- Custom House Quay (used by ships up to about 1,500 passenger seat)

- Cobh (used by the bulk of cruise ships)

- Ringaskiddy (used by large ships when Cobh is full)

Custom House Quay is ideal as it is a 10 min walk into Cork City, but also close to the train and bus stations if you want to get further away

Cobh allows trips to Cork, Blarney Castle, Fota or Midleton Distillery by public transport, with other options available by private hire

Ringaskiddy is a bit of a disaster. There is a bus service into Cork, but it can’t cope with the numbers off a cruise ship. Otherwise, you are stuck with a private hire. At least a private hire to Crosshaven or Kinsale isn’t too inconvenient from there.
