This is a gem within Cork city, especially during warm weather in the summer. It's in walking distance from the city, with an abundance of green area, a playground and the Mardyke Gym all located around the site. Would recommend if visiting Cork in the Summer or in Spring

This is the replacement restaurant in the revamped area in Fitzgerald Park, plenty of outside seating - can bring the dog. Food well prepared - queuing system bit haphazard - water and cutlery not at hand. Soups and sandwiches extremely tasty. Coffee good quality.

Beautiful....plus a playground! Love the new garden. This is a lovely place to visit for anyone. And there's a nice coffee shop although it can be busy.

A great place to relax! The gardens are just beautiful. The park has a very nice assortment of sculptures and a gorgeous pond and fountain in the middle. Right on the River Lee, which makes it all the more peaceful. The nearby "shaky bridge" shouldn't be missed either! Perfect for tired travelers or those who just need a break from... More

Look! - this park is iconic for Corkonians. But - it is a beautiful, riverside park with pond and plants, relaxing seating situations and a very decent sandwich and coffee restaurant. In other words - if you are not from Cork, you may even derive more pleasure from the visit! You've also got the imported suspended garden and the Cork... More

Enjoyable spot in the city when the weather is fine. The museum is well worth a visit. Last time there, there was a kiddies playground , the good thing was it was supervised and as soon as older students went to use the swings they were swiftly moved on.

This is a lovely park to visit and is such a family favourite with Corkonians and tourists alike. Visiting in June the air was filled with the scent of roses from the hundreds of roses in full bloom. There is a fantastic bandstand where local bands often play while families sit in the park having their picnics. The play ground... More
