Why Visit Cork, Ireland

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. The latter one features a fountain indoors and is actually one of the oldest municipal markets, thus make sure to step inside to explore the fun environment or buy some delicious local produce.

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. 

The Cork City Gaol, a significant building in the history of the city, is another important point of interest during Cork travel. The former prison nowadays displays exhibitions, depicting the cruelties of the life of inmates in the 20th century. The compelling museum is not a joyful one, however, it helps to better understand the history of the people and the area.

St. Anne's Church is also a significant landmark in Cork, with its Shandon Bells attracting numerous tourists to admire the original exterior of the bell tower, enjoy the spectacular views over the city and actually try to ring the bells themselves.

As for some authentic fun pursuits, visit the Cork Butter Museum! Featuring a long history of butter manufacturing, the city takes pride in the craft and provides with possibilities to get acquainted with it while on a Cork tour.
