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.

I always love going to fitz park! Looks amazing in the summer and a great place to chill out and get away from the stress of the city. Do not go to the cafe three next to the sky garden it's always busy and very expensive.

An amazing park in a calm area of Cork. Has a renovated section with a great restau/cafe that serves organic food and excellent coffee. I'd recommend this place for peace of mind seekers.

This is a cute place to be - even on a rainy day! The museum is worth a visit, too. Not far from the city center.
