It may be referred to as Ireland’s “second city” but to the people that live there, Cork is second to none. The residents are swelling with pride and they have good reason: the city is brimming with rich history, regal architecture including several castles, sweeping views and enough excitement to more than fill the average holiday.
Those who fancy exploring historic buildings will find Cork to be the ideal destination. Start by taking in the view from the top of the Church of St. Anne, and then get various other perspectives from vantage points like Shandon Tower. Blarney and Blackrock castle also call to those looking for ways to experience history up close. For travellers who prefer a slower pace but appreciate the local colour, Cork’s many parks offer hours of quiet reflection amid pristinely landscaped yards and botanical gardens.
Stroll the English Market for a light lunch or tour some of the many art galleries, museums and landmarks throughout the city in the afternoon, then enjoy a great meal at one of Cork’s many Michelin Star-rated restaurants in the evening. At night, it’s a party at every corner bar and pub. Round out the night with some locally-brewed libations and a little late-night nosh.
