Why you should go to Cork

Cork undoubtedly has a fascinating history stretching many hundreds of years into the past. Dating back to the 6th century, Cork was founded by Saint Finbar and it was decided it was to become a monastic settlement. However, that was until the Vikings created a trade port and an urbanised Cork city began to develop. As Ireland’s second largest city, Cork has become a must-see destination – combining the likes of boutique coffee shops with undisturbed streets.

A visit to Saint Fin Barre’s Cathedral allows you to soak up the spectacular mediaeval architecture of the city. Don’t forget to visit the Cork City Gaol too. This former prison is now a museum where you can gain insight into the lives of 19th century prisoners. And if you fancy taking it all in at a slower pace, head to the open green spaces that Fitzgerald Park has to offer.

If you’re a foodie, sample local Irish dishes at the English Market, or if you’re looking to get merry on your trip, try the Franciscan Well Brewery where they brew all of their beer onsite.
