What to do in Cork
Cork is one of the biggest cities in Ireland. It may not be the Irish capital city, but it’s number one in many other ways. With attractions like castles, gardens, museums, churches, and galleries, you should already be planning a trip to Cork.
Begin your trip to the city with a gorgeous view over Cork at Elizabeth Fort. Be stunned by the scenery at the top of the Blackrock Castle Observatory.
Take in the beauty of St Fin Barre’s Cathedral and St Anne’s Church. And for modern architecture in Cork, you should definitely stop by Lewis Gluckman Gallery. The gallery also features major international artworks, film screenings, art classes and more. There’s even a café here, if you’re starting to feel peckish.
Relive the history of Cork and take a trip to Cork City Gaol. You’ll even get great views of the city’s west side, so a visit here is truly worth it. Learn more about Cork, the locals, and its architecture at University College Cork too.
Have a break from the city and make your way to Cork’s many parks. There’s Bishop Lucey Park, which is the biggest park in Cork. Enjoy some peace and quiet among the waterfalls, lakes, and gardens at the Millstreet Country Park. See some rare flora too at Doneraile Wildlife Park and Fota Wildlife Park.
Take a cut of Cork home back in Australia and go shopping in Patrick Street, Mahon Point Shopping Centre, as well as Bandon, Mallow, Middleton, and the Opera Lane.
