About Cork

Is Cork the best place in the world? The locals certainly think so. One thing you’ll notice about this breezy, cosmopolitan city in Ireland’s southwest is that it inspires a devotion in its dwellers that no other place can rival. Sitting proudly on an island in the middle of the River Lee, Cork is a bustling collection of cool coffee shops, vibrant art galleries, unusual museums and seriously good pubs. Despite being a city, there’s a decidedly towny feel here – life is laidback, nothing is too much hassle. Pleasantly compact, friendly and easily walkable.

Beyond the city limits, you’ll find Titanic history, epic castles and pretty seaside towns are easily within reach. One of the most popular daytrips from Cork is to Cobh, a beautiful seaport town with a bittersweet history. Once the main port of emigration from Ireland, Cobh was the last port of call for Titanic and the story is magnificently told in the Titanic Experience in the old White Star Line offices. A totally different side of Ireland’s history is contained within Blarney Castle, a medieval stronghold a short drive from the city. There are dungeons, gardens, caves and a lake walk to enjoy, as well as the famous Blarney Stone, which, when kissed, imparts the gift of eloquence… apparently.
