Discover

Cork

Spread across a stretch of the River Leigh, Cork blends the very best of Ireland’s most attractive attributes into one spellbinding city. Filled with history, culture and fabulous scenery, Cork entices you to visit 18th century Shandon Church, where a climb to the top of the bell tower will reward you with magnificent views across Cork City and the surrounding Emerald Isle landscape.

For those interested in the stars and the space, head to the 16th century Blackrock Castle, which has unusually been converted into an observatory with stunning exhibitions to impress the whole family. Whether you are travelling as an individual, as a couple or as a family, be sure to immerse yourself in Cork’s engaging lifestyle, where lively pubs, excellent quality restaurants and superb museums are waiting to be discovered.
