About Cork City
Cork is a city of tradition and great food and attracts visitors from all over the world.
To see the best of Cork, take an historic walking tour and discover more about the city’s history. The Elizabeth Fort has good views all over the city and there is a food and crafts festival market, every Sunday. See the 19th century gothic St Finbar’s Cathedral and look out for the golden angel on the tower. Well worth a visit are the Cork City Gaol and the colourful harbour at Cobh, where there is a heritage centre. You could also visit Blackrock Castle and Observatory and take a break and enjoy the lake and wildlife at Lough Park.

The city is famous for its food scene and the best place to shop and try is the Cork English Market, a covered market with a wide selection of produce. There are many fine restaurants in the city and one of the most established for the best in local cuisine is the Ivory Tower Restaurant. After dark, Barrack Street is the place to go for the many bars – the local challenge is to drink a pint at each bar till you get to the end of the street, if you can still walk!

Out of town, visit the pretty seaside town of Kinsale, famous for its food festivals and seafood restaurants. You can also take a walking tour and see Desmond Castle and James Fort. Don’t forget to visit Blarney Castle and kiss the famous Blarney Stone, to receive the gift of eloquence.

It was originally a crowded walled city, later developed into a major port and now is a cosmopolitan and vibrant city, rivalling Dublin. It is well known for the port of Cobh, often the last place in Ireland immigrants saw when leaving for the USA and last port of call of the ill-fated Titanic.
