Cork is the ever-bustling city full of cultural heritage, cheerful people and authentic architecture, making it a must-see while in Ireland.

The authentic city offers some truly picturesque fun pursuits, such as strolling along St. Patrick's Street or visiting the English Market nearby.

Other points of interest on Cork sightseeing include the St. Fin Barre's Cathedral, featuring sky-crossing spires, as well as authentic interior, and the Blackrock Castle dating back to the 16th century.
