Love this park ever since I was a child. Had my wedding photos taken here and my sons communion photos. It's beautiful now with the sky garden etc but I thought it was beautiful even without all the new developments. Lovely walk around and the boys enjoy the playground. Only thing is sometimes the security guards don't allow young children... More

Finding fitzgerald park was one of the highlights of my trip here. It is massive, and boasts a rose garden, fountain, and cafe! Do visit here if you are feeling like you need to be in nature, as the city can feel a little lacking in that regard. The cafe has water and bathrooms, and really great treats. Great for... More

This park has something for everyone. A playground for the younger ones and the big kids too. Lovely walkways and cycle paths. A duck pond with a fountain, however it's not always turned on. A cafe with the basics but I would highly recommend bringing your own picnic and settling down on the grass and watch the world go by.... More

I like to run in enclosed parks. This one has a lot of walkway to do so. It's easy to get to from a main road, but once you're thee it's very tucked away. Family friendly, safe and clean. Must visit

Beautiful park! I've read that this has been a huge community draw in recent years and I can see why. The grounds and river are gorgeous. It is very well maintained and was great for the kids to explore. My son went nearly every day during our month in Cork.

Fitzgeralds park is close to the north side of the city and runs alongside the famous river lee as a kid I loved to go here would recommend to anyone with a family and this park has major events taking place every other week

My parents and I took my nephew here recently. A lot has been done to the place, including the Sky Garden, but overall it is still a bit grim. The playground area could do with a lot of work and looks shabby and dirty. The rose garden is nice and on a nice day it is nice to sit and... More
