Lovely little park with access to the "shaky bridge" and Cork Jail. There is also a cafe and nice outdoor sculptures - really worth visiting!

This is a super park for anyone of all ages to enjoy for an afternoon. There is a great playground for children and plenty of decor to enjoy all over the park including the newly added sky garden and various quirky decor. It doesnt take long to walk around or sit and enjoy lunch on the green by the pond... More

A lovely park that's just a short walk from the city centre. A great bit of green space to walk around and enjoy the sunshine or sit and watch the world go by. A great looking park for children to let off some steam too. I enjoyed looking around the free museum and learning a little bit about the history... More

Plenty of space, plenty to do and see and great value for money food outlets. Something for all! Chelsea flower show winning displays were great, and very hands on

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
